Flyers Rumors: 3 Players Being Discussed in Offseason Trade Talks

The Philadelphia Flyers continue to change the culture of their team as general manager Daniel Briere is not messing around this summer. We've seen some major moves on the trade market and a couple of low-key signings. It sounds like the trade talks continue for Briere and specifically on these three Flyers:

Scott Laughton

The Flyers have received a ton of calls on Laughton but didn't budge at the NHL Draft as the first-round picks being offered weren't high enough for Briere. Any deal will be loaded as Laughton does it all and is on a great contract at just $3 million for the next three seasons. The 29-year-old is captain material and is a pro's pro who brings his work boots each game. So far the Ottawa Senators and Edmonton Oilers continue to be teams to watch.

Travis Konecny

The Flyers biggest return would come if they dealt Travis Konecny. He's a skilled forward who pisses people off with his style of play and can really get under the skin of opponents. At 26 years old he's in the prime of his career and there's been several teams who have put out feelers this summer already. One team to watch is the Montreal Canadiens who have a closet full of picks and prospects they could move to tickle Briere's rebuilding fancy. 

Travis Sanheim

There's little doubt Sanheim gets moved this summer as he was already very close to being dealt to the St Louis Blues. These talks broke off thanks to Torey Krug's no-trade protection and now Sanheim is a sitting duck waiting for the process to finish. The Toronto Maple Leafs and Carolina Hurricanes had interest, but have both since made major moves this summer. He holds a no-trade clause which of course throws a wrench into things but when your team tells you they essentially don't want you, it opens up the willingness to be moved.
