Could next season be Tomas Plekanec's last with the Canadiens?

Could next season be Tomas Plekanec’s last with the Montreal Canadiens?

MONTREAL GAZETTE: Canadiens center Tomas Plekanec is entering his contract year, and his future beyond that remains to be determined.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: There’s some talk the Habs could trade the 32-year-old center, whose cap hit for next season is $5 million, but they would certainly miss his reliable two-way style. 

OTTAWA SUN: It’s unlikely the Senators buy out little-used winger Colin Greening, who has two years and $5.95 million remaining on his contract. It’s believed the club will keep trying to trade him.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: They’ve been unsuccessful in their attempts thus far to trade him. Unless Greening is bundled into a larger deal or the Sens agree to take back a toxic contract, the only way I see them moving him is by picking up part of his salary. 

TORONTOMAPLELEAFS.COM: The Leafs yesterday announced “Jim Hiller, D.J. Smith and Andrew Brewer have been named assistant coaches on Mike Babcock’s staff.”

EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jim Matheson examines potential goaltending targets via the draft for the Edmonton Oilers.

CALGARY HERALD: The Flames have released their preseason schedule, which kicks off on Sept. 21 with split-squad games against the Edmonton Oilers.
