According to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer the Philadelphia Flyers are having exploratory talks with the Dallas Stars, San Jose Sharks and Calgary Flames about Jaromir Jagr, Ryane Clowe, and Jay Bouwmeester. Nothing substantialhas arisen yet but the talks have been confirmed. The Flyers chip seems to be Sean Couturier but Carchidi doesn’t think that now is the right time to trade Couturier as he seems to going through his sophomore slump. He also said that based on what he is hearing Anaheim Ducks Bobby Ryan is no longer in the mix.
Bob Mckenzie believes that the Flyers are among the leading contenders for Clowe along with the Minnesota Wild but the New York Rangers, Vancouver Canucks and Montreal Canadiens are still in the mix. According to Mckenzie there is a 50-50 chance that Clowe is moved today.
Mckenzie also said that the Rangers are more interested in Clowe as a rental player while the Canadiens might think the price is too high for a rental. The Flyers, Wild and Canucks are all capable of giving an extension to Clowe. He also said that San Jose and Minnesota seem to like trading, could Mckenzie know more than he is letting on?
