The Philadelphia Flyers need help at forward, so a deal to acquire a top-six forward could be on the horizon.
If not, the Flyers could also look to add a veteran player to shore up their bottom six.
The Flyers have a number of options in their sights, but the biggest question mark is whether they’re willing to give up a top six forward to sign a winger.
One thing is for certain, however, the team will not spend a lot of money to acquire one of the most accomplished players in the NHL.
According to the Hockey Writers, the Pittsburgh Penguins are willing to spend up to $4 million per year on winger Matt Read, who turns 32 this summer.
That is far less than what the Flyers will need to spend to land a top scorer like Ryan Hartman.
The Penguins also have some options on the blue line, as well as a couple of other forwards.
The Philadelphia Eagles are the last team to reach the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and the team currently sits in a tie for fourth in the Eastern Conference standings.
With no immediate need to add an elite scorer, the Philadelphia Eagles may want to look elsewhere for a veteran to bolster the bottom six, especially with Connor Brown out with a lower-body injury.
The team will have to wait until the season is over for Brown to return, so it could be a while before they can make any moves to shore their bottom four.
The Washington Capitals have been looking to add veterans along their blue line for some time, but they are not ready to make any significant moves until after the season.
The Philadelphia Flyers have been linked to several top prospects in free-agency this offseason, and they could be looking to get a little more bang for their buck.
The Flyers could be one of several teams that have a player in the mix to be a part of the final roster.
