Flyers Rumors: 3 Players Not Expected to be Traded Ahead of 2024 Deadline

The Philadelphia Flyers shocked the hockey world recently by moving out top prospect Cutter Gauthier to the Anaheim Ducks. GM Daniel Briere has been extremely active in trade conversations since taking over in Philly and that's not going to change leading up the March 8 trade deadline.

While there's a number of players who are expected to be traded from the Flyers, including some pending free-agent defensemen, here's the opposite end of the spectrum. Here's three Flyers, who will not be moved before March 8th:

Owen Tippett

The Flyers love Tippett's game and he's starting to come into his own as an NHL regular. He was the big piece of return from the Claude Giroux deal with Florida and Tippett's given the franchise some hope for their core moving forward. The 24-year-old is a pending restricted free agent at season's end and look for a long-term contract to be completed at some point this summer. Tippet has recorded 26 points in 43 games so far this year.

Sean Walker

While there's been a ton of trade speculation this season surrounding Sean Walker, there's speculation brewing that an extension is in the cards. The Keswick, ON native loves Philly and so far the coaching staff and organization feel it's mutual. While he'll be of interest from contending teams, there's no doubt about that considering he's a RHD who can play in all situations, the chances of Walker getting dealt are slim. If he's rostered in Philly after March 8, look for a contract extension to come this summer.

Travis Konecny

Year after year, Konecny has heard his name in trade rumors, but at this point, it doesn't appear anything is on the fore front. Konecny and head coach John Tortorella have a touch-and-go relationship, but that seems to be the case for everyone Torts coaches. Konecny is signed for next season, at $5.5 million and does not hold any trade protection. So far this season, he's recorded 39 points in 43 games and at 26 years old, could still be in the organization's long term plans.
