The trading has begun ,
The New Jersey Devils have acquired forward Alexei Ponikarovsky from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for minor-league defenseman Joseph Sova and a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Draft.
Eklund is saying that we are talking to Philly for Voracek. Which would be a good alternative to JVR since he is out with a concussion. Who knows...
Just guess somebody from Philly or SJ and you'll be in the hunt.
Voracek has played well, but JVR has a bigger upside, unfortunately, he's banged up now, not just the concussion, either a hip or sports hernia issue (Flyers are very mysterious when it comes to injury reports).
But I think the reason Voracek is being heard as bait is due to JVR's injuries. The flyers need a D man, preferably a veteran guy to suipport Kimmo. Be nice if they coudl find a good Dman with an attitude . And Voraceck could be packaged.
Not sure if LA has what Philly needs in terms of experience and age.
