If you read my blog from last night you saw that Pierre-Luc Dubois was benched in Columbus’s loss to the Lightning after a lack of effort.
He was benched for the entire 2nd and 3rd periods along with the overtime. Dubois has been the hot topic of trade rumors since the offseason and now things are really starting to pickup.
According to Pierre Lebrun there have been 12 teams who have inquired about Dubois with the Philadelphia Flyers being one of them.
The Flyers being on this list isn’t shocking but I don’t know how much interest would really be there on their end. Dubois is only 22 years old and has plenty of talent but the Flyers have decent depth at the center position right now. Unless they plan on making him a winger I just don’t see the fit for him here. I am by no means saying I don’t want the guy but if it requires giving up a guy like Patrick or Frost I’m not interested.
It’s going to be an interesting next few weeks as all of this comes to a head and it would be beneficial to both parties to get a deal done sooner rather than later.
