NHL Rumors: Calgary Flames Linked to Flyers Forward

Philadelphia Flyers forward James van Riemsdyk is having another solid, and that naturally is leading to him getting a lot of attention as a potential rental candidate. The veteran winger has shown that he can still produce quite well, so teams in need of scoring will certainly have him on their radar. In a recent piece for The Fourth Period, Anthony Di Marco noted that JVR could be a fit with the Calgary Flames.

It is clear that the Flames need to get more scoring if they hope to keep up with their Western Conference rivals. After all, their scoring woes has been the primary reason for their underwhelming season so far. Yet, if they were to bring in a player like JVR to their top six, it certainly could give them that boost that helps them look like real contenders again. Keep in mind, he would be a significant upgrade over Milan Lucic in their top six.

Alas, we will have to wait and see if the Flames end up bringing in JVR from here.
