The Philadelphia Daily News' Frank Seravalli reports Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren isn't going to be chasing a big trade just to make a move. Holmgren was rather stoic when he said "I don't foresee anything major happening." Despite not anticipating a major move, Holmgren did not count out the possibility of the Flyers making a move to improve the team.
The Flyers are not typically one to remain quiet at the trade deadline. Last year the Flyers acquired starting goaltender Steve Mason from the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Michael Leighton and a 2015 third round pick. Two years ago the Flyers made moves around the deadline when they acquired defenseman Pavel Kubina from the Lightning just days after they acquired defenseman Nick Grossmann (back then it was "Grossman" without the extra "n") from the Stars. If we want to go further back, the Flyers acquired Kris Versteeg from the Toronto Maple Leafs in 2011, too.
The point is Holmgren's track record says he is likely going to make some sort of move as the Wednesday deadline approaches. After the Flyers brutal 7-3 loss to the Sharks on Thursday night Holmgren might be singing a different tune now.
