The Philadelphia Flyers plan on being aggressive in the trade and free agent market
Flyers listening to trade offers for the 11th overall pick

Sam Carchidi: Philadelphia Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher said that he is listening to any trade offers for their first round pick – 11th overall.

He is okay with the idea of keeping the pick if he doesn’t get his asking price but adds “if we can get a good player at the right stage of his career and with some term left on his contract, we’d certainly look at it.”

Adam Kimelmen of NHL.com: The Philadelphia Flyers are planning on having a busy and aggressive offseason according to GM Chuck Fletcher.

“I think we’re going to be very aggressive in the trade and free agent markets in the sense of looking into every possible situation that can help us,” said general manager Chuck Fletcher, who was hired Dec. 3 to replace Ron Hextall. “The unfortunate part is the vast majority of things you look into don’t work out. … So we’re going to be very aggressive in trying to fill the holes we feel we have. I don’t know if I can say we’ll be able to fill all of them.”

Fletcher said they need to fill holes on the blue line, at center and wing, and they need to bring in another goalie or two.

“We are aggressively looking in the trade market now. At the right time, we’ll certainly speak to every agent for a lot of free agents and see if there’s a fit, see if there’s players that want to come to Philly and if there’s the right fit for our club. The good thing is we’ve got the assets and the cap space, and sometime in the near future, we’ll make some good things happen, and hopefully sooner rather than later.”

Plan B could be filling some spots with young prospects or players in their 30’s on one- or two-year deals.

They’ve held preliminary talks with their four big RFAs in Ivan Provorov, Travis Sanheim, Travis Konecny and Scott Laughton.
