Flyers Rumors: Travis Konecny Listed as Trade Candidate

The Philadelphia Flyers are finally beginning a true rebuild, and more moves should be on the way because of it. The Athletic recently listed star forward Travis Konecny as one of the league's top trade targets heading into 2023-24 because of it. 

Trade speculation centered around Konecny has cooled off a bit as the summer has gone on, but now with the regular season getting closer, it seems that things may be changing on that front. It makes sense, as Konecny just had a career season, and the Flyers could look to take advantage of his increased value.

Teams looking to improve their top six need to consider making a serious push for Konecny from here. Not only is he a skilled player, but he also provides some grit and tenacity with it. Some teams who have been previously connected to him include the Detroit Red Wings, Edmonton Oilers, and St. Louis Blues.

We will need to wait and see if Konecny ends up being dealt, whether it is before the season starts or during it.
