from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Before the start of the free-agent period, a player can tell his team - in Bouwmeester’s case, Florida - he is willing to talk with a team that is interested in acquiring his rights.
Bouwmeester has not given the Flyers permission to talk with him and see if he would sign for X amount of dollars before they made a deal for him.
He apparently hasn’t given any team permission, an NHL source said.
“My gut sense is that they can’t get him to agree to talk to anybody now,” said a Flyers official who asked to remain anonymous. “That’s the wrinkle.”
