Is James van Riemsdyk On The Trading Block?

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

Usually in the NHL, when there’s smoke in rumors, there is fire lurking somewhere. Have your name mentioned once in a rumor, and it could be misinformation. Have your name pop up a half dozen times with a list of interested teams, and you’re likely being shopped.

I was always a big believer that the Flyers were interested in hanging on to van Riemsdyk, after watching an abdominal tear, a concussion, a fractured foot and the hip injury derail a promising season.

After Monday’s news conference with Holmgren, I’m not so sure.

Holmgren praised van Riemsdyk’s “tremendous future” and then dropped this:

“He’s our player?…?right now.”

Call it a coincidence. I call that parapraxis.
