Flyers pursuing Canucks center Ryan Kesler?

Two league sources told the Daily News that the Flyers have tabled a “substantial offer” to try and pry Kesler from the Canucks. They have also asked about acquiring Vancouver defenseman Alexander Edler, who is reportedly on the market, as part of a larger trade – though that combined price is steep.

At this point, a little more than 24 hours shy of Wednesday’s 3 o’clock finish line, any deal of this magnitude seems rather unlikely. There are numerous obstacles in the way.

Plus, the Flyers clearly are not the only player pursuing Kesler. Numerous teams, including Pittsburgh, Toronto, Chicago, Boston and even Columbus have inquired with Canucks general manager Mike Gillis about Kesler.
