Flyers Aim to Move Bobrovsky

From Frank Seravalli at Philly News:

While rosters have begun to fill out since free agency commenced on July 1, just because Bobrovsky is here now does not mean he will remain the Flyers’ backup come Opening Night on Oct. 6.

Why?

The Flyers will continue to look to move him if the price is right. Bobrovsky, with a $1.75 million salary next season, will become the second-highest paid backup in the NHL on a team that usually spends to the limit.

Bryzgalov, who hasn’t played fewer than 65 games in each of the last three seasons, is a workhorse. While few say Bryzgalov would be a bad mentor for his fellow Russian, Bobrovsky would be cut from 60 appearances last season (including playoffs) to nearly 20 next season. Few experts would go out on a limb and say that would not stunt Bobrovsky’s development.

You might be able to get Van Riemsdyk for that package if Holmgren is stoned enough.

Unless Holmgren gets Varlamov return on this or somehow acquires Stamkos with the capsavings, this is further indication that he’s nuts. Bob’s fast in the crease, which is a rare asset that can’t be taught. Everything he’s done after the Carter trade has been batcrap crazy. Next we’ll hear he’s moved Giroux for Rob Schremp and Linus Omark.

Edmonton doesn’t have to tell Holmgren they don’t have Schremp’s rights. They probably wouldn’t either, considering they twice traded buyout-ineligible players to a Kings team who just wanted a guy to buyout.
