Flyers not interested in McCabe or Sarich

According to sources, the Flyers do not have interest in two defensemen that would have readily been available: free agent veteran Bryan McCabe and Calgary’s Cory Sarich.

Sarich, 33, is in the last season of a 5-year, $18 million contract. He has been a healthy scratch for 11 of the Flames’ games this season and reportedly requested a trade last week to escape from the press box. Though his cap hit is $3.6 million, which the Flyers could not afford once Pronger is healthy again, I am told they are not even interested in him if he hits re-entry waivers to nab him at half price for the rest of the season.According to sources, the Flyers do not have interest in two defensemen that would have readily been available: free agent veteran Bryan McCabe and Calgary’s Cory Sarich.

McCabe, 36, played out his 5-year, $28.75 million deal with the Rangers last season but did not garner enough interest for a contract this year. He would have been needed to be signed to a deal by Dec. 1 in order to be eligible to play this season.
