Holmgren doesn’t see Flyers making major move
The trade rumors involving the Flyers have been blowing in the wind for a while now.
Bob Dylan notwithstanding.
Despite the Flyers’ terribly inconsistent play and the very tightness of this lockout-shortened season, general manager Paul Holmgren says he is not going to pull the trigger on a major deal.
“I think we have a nucleus of good, young players,” Holmgren said Tuesday night before the Flyers’ taunt 3-2 win over the Jets.
“To talk about disrupting that is not something that I am in favor of doing. We have not played exactly how I thought we would have played.
“We’re missing some key people [Scott Hartnell and Andrej Meszaros] right now. We can’t use that as an excuse. Other teams have similar issues going. We’re going to ride this out for now.
“I don’t anticipate doing anything. Obviously, there is lots of talk going on right now. Everyone is doing their due diligence, but I don’t foresee us making a move.”
