from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,
At the beginning of one of the most crucial weeks of the offseason, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren held a press conference on Monday to discuss the team’s draft and free agency plans.
Here’s a few quick hits from Monday’s press conference:
—Holmgren laughed and said he “knew nothing” when asked about a rumor circulating over the weekend about Columbus star Rick Nash vetoing a trade to the Flyers. Nash’s name has been linked the Flyers, Rangers, Sharks, Bruins and even Maple Leafs in recent weeks. He’s expected to be dealt before July 1 rolls around.
—Holmgren said it would be unlikely that the Flyers would trade for the rights of any potential free agents before the July 1 free agency season opens.
