Kukla's Korner Hockey

Philadelphia Flyers GM Palu Holmgren kicked off a day’s worth of conference calls from the Flyers, Nashville Predators and Shea Weber, and the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sam Carchidi kicks things off with a Cliff’s Notes version of Holmgren’s presser:
In a conference call with reporters a few minutes ago, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren said he probably won’t pursue another RFA this summer, added he was close to resigning Jakub Voracek, and claimed his pursuit of Shea Weber was only because of his stature - and not because he is unhappy with his defense.
“We have to move forward,” he said.
Holmgren also hinted that the Bobby Ryan talks are not dead.
The GM said Shane Doan wants to remain in Phoenix, but that if he has a change of heart, the Flyers have interest.
