“I prefer to play and I prefer to play and stay here,” Meszaros said. “[Wednesday] is the trade deadline and I’m not looking for anything. I want to be here right now, do my job and play. What will happen, will happen. Everybody wants to play all the time. It was tough this year for me, I know that. I still like it here. I really enjoy being here with the guys. It’s going to be interesting [Wednesday].”
Meszaros said he’s not worried about what might happen. He doesn’t think about it.
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.
The clock is ticking. The puck drops on the Stanley Cup playoffs in 78 days.
For Paul Holmgren, one foot is in a frying pan and the other one is in a pressure cooker. The next 6 weeks leading up to the March 5 trade deadline could make or break his tenure as Flyers’ general manager.
I keep saying this. The day the Flyers made the trade for Luke Schenn, the Coyotes offered Yandle to them hours before at the draft and GM Paul Holmgren turned them down. Same deal as what Toronto got.
They have lost four in succession on the road in which their goaltending suddenly has a bit of a leak – four or more goals yielded, per loss, in regulation play.
Their scoring has been erratic, their defense has looked very slow off transition, and yet they have still managed to pick up eight points over their last eight games.
