Trade Deadline March 3 – Flyers Readying for Trades?

The Flyers have waived Riley Cote, sent defenseman Danny Syvret to the Phantoms, and placed goalie Ray Emery on long-term Injured Reserve, clearing about $2.5 million in cap space and signaling that they are evidently preparing to make a trade. With the defense playing well lately but scoring down, you’ve got to think a scoring forward would be the target. The Kings’ Alexander Frolov, Thrashers’ Colby Armstrong, Carolina’s Ray Whitney have been rumored as drawing the Flyers’ interest. I don’t expect them to trade for a goalie, instead riding Michael Leighton the rest of the way, although Nashville’s Dan Ellis has been mentioned as possibly heading to Philly. Let’s hope GM Paul Holmgren can come up with a decent deal for someone who can put the puck in the net – not another low scoring grinder for a change.
