A couple of days ago, Elliotte Friedman threw oil on the Montreal rumour fire when reaffirming that Pierre-Luc Dubois is leaning towards playing for the Canadiens. It’s nothing new as Dubois’ agent has confirmed that in the past, except that it seems like the Jets’ centre hasn’t changed his mind at this time.
