“And one thing is for certain: If van Riemsdyk's name is being widely circulated through the media, it's clear that Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren hasn't exactly hung up the phone when the conversation turns his way.
On the surface, van Riemsdyk hasn't lived up to the promise he showed during last year's playoff run, when he netted seven goals in 11 games and was one of the most dominating players on the ice. He entered last night's contest against the Oilers with just 11 goals and 13 assists in 39 games.”
Whether or not JVR gets moved is a different story but it appears as though a large number of teams are calling Holmgren to try and work out a deal. The trade deadline is Monday so things probably won’t die down until then.
