Well...looks like Pronger is looking more and more like an invalid...cool
Sources are telling Leed that Chris Prongerís knee surgery could keep him out longer than the expected 4 weeks. The Flyers are concerned about Prongerís injuries, and GM Paul Holmgren has been working the phones for a defenseman.
Sources have confirmed that the Flyers have contacted the Flames about Mark Giordano and Scott Hannan. Putting Andreas Nodl on waivers put the Flyers at 49 contracts. The Hurricanes are willing to move a defenseman or two for a top 9 forward. The Flyers are not interested in Tomas Kaberle. They could offer draft picks for Tim Gleason ($2.9 million) or Bryan Allen ($2.75 million). Philly has the Kings 2nd round pick, either a 2012 or 2013 2nd round pick from the Panthers, and a 2013 3rd round pick from the Wild, to go along with their picks that they could offer up. Lightning Bruno Gervais is another potential target. The Canucks have been shopping Keith Ballard, but Leed doesnít see the Flyers interested in his $4.2 million salary. The Flyers donít have any interest in moving Matt Carle or Sergei Bobrovsky at the moment. For now they will go with Kevin Marshall and Marc-Andre Bourdon, but theyíll likely need another steady defenseman at some point.
