Sens and Ducks talking to the Ducks about Ryan

The Senators aren’t alone in their pursuit, but they may be one of the few teams with the assets to make a deal happen. The talk is the Ducks would like to get a defencemen in return if they are going to move Ryan.

“He’s the guy everybody wants,” said a league executive Thursday.

Are the Edmonton Oilers interested in Philadelphia Flyers defenceman Braydon Coburn?

First, Coburn is a good fit for Edmonton’s needs. He has size (6’5″, 220 pounds), a physical game, skates well, and has some ability to move the puck. He’s primarily a defensive defenceman and plays on both sides of the ice but has a left-handed shot. It’s a mixture that – particularly with a weak free agent crop – the Oilers are going to have trouble finding.

Five Flyers goalie options, post-Bryzgalov

You all know the news by now — the Philadelphia Flyers will use a compliance buyout on goalie Ilya Bryzgalov.

It could be that management already has a plan in place to address the starting goaltending for next season, so don’t be surprised if there’s more to this story soon.

But here are five potential options, for discussion’s sake:

Could the Flyers and Blues swing a deal?

 

Danny Briere knows he’s likely facing a buyout

After this evening’s game against the Ottawa Senators, Danny Briere, who remains out of the lineup following a concussion, has eight more games left in the season.

Briere “pushed” things today at the morning skate, he said, and needs to see how he’s feeling on Friday. If he has no symptoms – he hasn’t had any for about four days – then he’ll play Saturday in Buffalo.

Briere is likely down to his final eight games as a Flyer. He’s an obvious option for an amnesty buyout this summer with two years left on his deal at a team-high $6.5 million cap hit.

Flyers in the mix of teams chasing San Jose forward Ryane Clowe

RYANE CLOWE and the San Jose Sharks have the Flyers waiting with bated breath.

Clowe, the forward the Flyers have spent the better part of the past 2 days chasing, was scratched from Monday night’s lineup by the Sharks in order to “protect the asset” in the event of a trade. An injury would have derailed the process.

As of press time for this edition, Clowe had not been traded. Check Philly.com/Sports for the latest Flyers information.
