Low risk high reward on an expiring contract. It's his salary that scares people away...and his injury history of course...

i really think the only way they can move him is if the Flyers eat some of that contract. I think teams may have called. Hard to say if Holmgren has said no to any offer or he is waiting on a desperate team to offer up a 2nd rounder for him around the deadline.
In all honesty I would be shocked if they got more than a 4th for him. Right now his value is at a alltime low. Everyone sees what he is right now.
I would bite the bullet and eat some of the salary and deal him for a midlevel pick.
