According to current reports in NHL team offices, Philadelphia Flyers they would be in a surprising position when you consider their positive start to the season.
At least that’s what Darren Dreger reported during his segment on TSN’s Hockey Insider.
Currently out of the playoffs with a 10-8-1 record, the Flyers would be wary of all scenarios on the trade market, both in terms of sales and acquisitions.
“I can confirm to you that the Flyers are seen as sellers and buyers right now,” Dreger explained on the air. But it’s not because we’re trying to liquidate players. On the contrary, we want to solidify the core for years to come, and management believes that the assets in their game are interesting to maneuver. »
“Here we will look at all the scenarios, but not necessarily all the players in the team. We will ask ourselves whether it is time to sell or buy. »
“Here we are talking about two defenders who can give around twenty minutes per game, it is clear that Daniel Brière will receive several calls regarding them and it would be tempting to make a transaction. »
Walker has three goals and ten points in 19 games this season. With a salary of $2.65 million on the payroll, he will be a free agent this summer.
Seeler, for his part, has four assists with a more than modest salary of $775,000. And he, like Walker, will be free as air at the end of the campaign.
The flyers are preparing to face the New York Rangers Friday as their road week ends at the Islanders on Saturday.
