Paul Holmgren isn’t happy with the defensive play of his forwards. So much so that the Flyers’ general manager met Monday afternoon with free agent left wing Brendan Shanahan.

“Brendan wants to play, so we sat down and chatted about the possibilities,” Holmgren told “We would have to jump through some hoops to get a deal done because of the cap, but we could do something.”

The Flyers are top-heavy with forwards, and they are about $700,000 under the NHL’s $56.7 million salary cap. They would have to lose salary. Other sources say the 39-year-old Shanahan might be willing to play for less than $1 million given so many clubs are strapped by the salary cap right now.
