from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,
As it stands now, with negotiations in the works for Ville Leino and restricted free agents Wayne Simmonds and Jakub Voracek, the Flyers have approximately $8.3 million in salary-cap space, with Michael Leighton stashed in the AHL.
That’s enough to do some serious damage on the free-agent market. Or, if you’re reading the tea leaves along with me, maybe even the restricted free-agent market.
Two different team sources reiterated last night that the Flyers would be very interested in Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos if he remains on the market on Friday morning.
Reports indicated that the Lightning and Stamkos’ agents have had ongoing discussions, though that doesn’t say much, knowing that the sides have been talking for more than a month.
When you add to the equation that the Lightning - which was reported to have lost $20 million to $25 million last season - might have financial limitations, and the reports.
