Should the Flyers think about trading for P.K.Subban?

Before I start, I want to let people know that this is my first ever fanpost, so don't be to harsh please and I also want to let you know that English is not my native language, so I am sorry if my message is not 100% clear.

I read this post from the Canucks blog Here and they talk alot about trading for P.K.Subban and that got me thinking if the Flyers should explore the idea.

P.K.Subban is a 22 year old defenseman with a curent cap hit of 875.000$ and is an RFA after this season.

First here is a link to Subban advanced stats from behindthenet.ca and here is the comparison with his fellow defense men from Montreal.

We cant take to much from the first link, but when we compare him to his teammates(only defense men) we see that he is:

  • 2nd on his team with TOI/60 with 17.07
  • His 2nd on his team in CRelQC
  • He got an OZS% of 46.2% and OZF% 49.1%
What can we take from this? First we can take that Subban is currently a part of Montreals top defense pair, facing the toughest competition and playing the most minutes on the ice and even tho he starts more often in his own end, he still brings the play forward.
Would Montreal be interested in trading Subban away? Consider we havnt heard any trade rumors etc around him and he is a very good young defense men, I doubt they would, but if things mentioned in the commentaries of the Canucks blog are true, maybe they would?
I will not speculate on what trading for Subban might cost, but what do you think about adding a guy like Subban for a fair price?
