Flyers May Be Thinking Trade

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

With the Flyers limping to an 0-3 start, the whispers are quickly growing louder and louder that jobs are on the line.

No one has ever accused Flyers chairman Ed Snider of being a patient man.

Is it possible that the Flyers would consider making a trade first?...

So far, the Flyers have shown interest in the Flames, a team in the midst of a rebuild expected to finish near the bottom of the standings. Complicating matters even more is the fact that the Flames are off to a 1-0-2 start.

One name the Flyers have been kicking around is winger Curtis Glencross, who has been playing on Calgary's first line. Glencross, 30, netted 26 points in 40 games last season. He has 24- and 26-goal seasons on his resume, he's consistent, and he's one of the few players on Calgary's roster to play a gritty game.

Really, a trade?

How can that be?

Philly would have to do a trade to clear up cap room first, then maybe they could acquire the actual player they want.  I don’t see them being able to do both in one fell swoop.
