Back in 2014, prior to the June Draft held in Philadelphia, the Flyers were struggling to find a blue line staple.
Before Shayne Gostisbehere was ready to make the leap to the NHL, before the Flyers drafted Travis Sanheim and Ivan Provorov, and with Sam Morin still several years away in juniors, the Flyers were looking to replace a Hall-of-Famer.
Chris Pronger's injury had left a hole in the Flyers defensive core and the Flyers were trying desperately to fill. It is already well documented that the team signed defenseman Shea Weber to a 14-year, $110 million offer sheet deal that was matched by the Nashville Predators. Now, there may be another big-name defenseman that nearly joined the Flyers.
Back in 2014, the Flyers were the closest to acquiring P.K. Subban from the Montreal Canadiens when there were conflicts in going through arbitration, according to Elliotte Friedman of SportsNet in his weekly 30 Thoughts.
