While the Seattle Kraken has an exclusive window to chat with unrestricted future customers who aren’t protected by the various teams on the Bettman Tour, it will remain radio silence on the part of Philip Danault.
Several rumors in the past few hours have indicated that the Montreal Canadiens striker has held talks with the expanded team, but according to reports. RDS I knew, it wasn’t.
On the other hand, the chances of Danault returning to the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge uniform next season appear increasingly slim.
Quebec would like to take advantage of full autonomy for an annual salary of $5.5 million for the next six years. That would be a huge boost to the 28-year-old’s salary as he’s made just over $3 million a year for the past three campaigns.
Danault has shown above all else his efficiency in silencing his opponents, especially in the last series. For his part, he scored one goal and made three assists in 22 games, as the Canadian lost in the Stanley Cup Final against Tampa Bay Lightning.
