Morning Links: Canadiens' contract talks

  • Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin does not appear to be antsy to re-sign P.K. Subban, referring to the negotiations as "an ongoing process," and "We’ll get around to it," according to The (Montreal) Gazette. Bergevin also did not mention Subban as being one of the team's core young players. “He’s a good young player,” Bergevin said, according to the report. “There’s a lot of things that come into play, (but) there’s potential there for sure.”

  • Bergevin also confirmed the team has expressed interest in Shane Doan, but said the Phoenix captain has not visited the Habs this summer, according to TSN.

  • Steve Begin required surgery to repair a torn labrum and remove bone spurs after playing one NHL game this past season, but the 34-year-old center is ready for another shot at the NHL, according to the Calgary Herald. Begin signed a tryout with the Flames after the operation was deemed a success this past weekend.
