Time to offer-sheet or trade for Canadiens' P.K. Subban?

As the P.K. Subban saga drags on, you have to wonder if there is a team out there that would consider an offer sheet for the defenceman, who remains far apart on a deal with the Montreal Canadiens following a meeting that yielded no progress Friday.

At the top of anybody’s list would be the Philadelphia Flyers, a club that tendered an offer to Shea Weber which was matched by the Nashville Predators last summer, and who lost another defenceman Friday when it was announced oft-injured Andrej Meszaros will be out for a month with a shoulder injury. With Chris Pronger’s career all but officially over because of a concussion, the Flyers have a need for a top blueline presence.
