Rumors keep Flyers on edge as deadline looms

“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.

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.

Flyers have small window to make a deal to improve team

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.

Coyotes offered Yandle to the Flyers for JVR

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.

Are the Flyers on the verge of change?

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.

How spike in NHL salary cap will impact the Flyers

All told, the Flyers have $49.36 million committed for next season.

That leaves approximately $21.7 million to spend, though a few players need extensions first. Goaltender Steve Mason will be due a big raise once he is eligible to sign an extension on Jan. 1. Steve Downie is set to become an unrestricted free agent and already earns $2.65 million. Brayden Schenn, Michael Raffl and Erik Gustafsson are all restricted. The Flyers also will need to find a deal for Ray Emery or look for a new backup.

Philly knows that they will have to give something up good to get something good

 

Rumors from tsn.ca’s Darren Dreger

Darren Dreger: We are hearing some interesting names that are starting to surface. Two of them that come to mind are Brayden Schenn of the Phildadelphia Flyers and Michael Del Zotto of the New York Rangers. Now the Flyers aren’t trying to push out Schenn – they may want to push out his brother Luke – but what they’ve told teams quietly is that if there is the right deal available, if they can find the right fit, then absolutely they would include Brayden Schenn in a trade scenario. And we know Paul Holmgren likes to make that big blockbuster deal.
