The Flyers have ALWAYS denied those rumours. Homer has stated from the day he took over that Carter and Richards were untouchable, yet somehow.....Carter has "almost" been traded to Toronto on multiple occasions but oddly enough, never anywhere else.....curious.
Now, magically - there are JVR to Toronto rumours. The Canadian media "talk hockey" 24 hours a day (literally). I am not saying the Flyers are NOT shopping JVR or Zherdev. However, since it started in Canada out of Toronto, I am saying this reeks of BS. Why would you shop JVR right now? This is a stanley cup year, he is signed at 1.6M and when his contract is up, he is an RFA, so if we have problems.....we trade him then, no rush. No worry about losing him for nothing, or having to sign him to a big contract. So why trade him?
