“As always, goaltending consistency is a problem, but there’s little Philly can do, as they’re locked into a “humungous” deal with Ilya Bryzgalov and probably don’t want to part with the developing Sergei Bobrovsky. The loss of captain Chris Pronger to concussion is at least an equally important problem, if not more so. GM Paul Holmgren will be looking for a veteran defenseman, and different reports have had him interested in Ryan Suter or Luke Schenn. And because James van Riemsdyk’s status (concussion) is uncertain, they could also try to pick up another scoring forward. JVR has been rumored in trade talks (specifically in connection with Schenn), but he’s not going anywhere while he’s recovering.”
I still don’t see the Flyers trading for a top forward but at least this allows me to see where people are coming from. The leaders for Nash appear to be the New York Rangers and Los Angeles Kings. The Flyers still appear to be in the market for a defenseman but they are going quickly with Hal Gill traded to Nashville this afternoon.
