At the moment, the Canadiens are far from being the only club in the race for Pierre-Luc Dubois’ services. Clubs such as the Rangers and the Wild are among the teams mentioned in the file.
Does this mean he’s not open to coming to Montreal? No. You know the guy wants to play here.
The Los Angeles Kings have been mentioned a few times now, and according to Elliotte Friedman, we shouldn’t be surprised to see the L.A. organization pick him up.
Of course, you’d think that if the Kings were willing to give Dubois a nice contract, he’d be tempted to sign. We’re talking about a great city, a great organization and an interesting environment.
In the short term, this would give the Kings a nice center line. With Anze Kopitar (another year on his contract) and Phillip Danault (four years on his contract), they’d have a trio of firepower center players. And the veteran’s succession would be assured.
Finally, let’s note that the Sportsnet tipster thinks the center can fetch around $9 million. Whether it’s a little more or a little less, that’s the range.
So no, getting him out of Winnipeg won’t be easy for the Habs.
– A touching message from Arpon Basu for his colleague Marc-Antoine Godin, who lost his job.
The most talented, creative, hard-working person I have ever worked with. He made me such a better journalist, I can’t even find the words to describe the extent of it. Just the best teammate you could ever ask for, and such a massive part of what we do. Incredibly sad day. https://t.co/5WyO4Rxt6d

– Where can he go?
With #Flames expected to name Ryan Huska next head coach shortly, two-time AHL coach of the year Mitch Love has term on his contract with the Calgary organization, but plans to consider all of his options moving forward.
