The Flyers placed defenseman Matt Walker on waivers today, and the $1.7 million that will come off the books will give them about $3.6 million in acquisition space.
In other words, enough to acquire Carolina’s Erik Cole, a 32-year-old winger who has 13 goals and 13 assists this season.
Cole, who played for Peter Laviolette when the Hurricanes won the Stanley Cup, is a player who would fit well with the Flyers. He can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but his $2.9 million salary would also fit.
Is a deal in the works?
