Trade fodder: Add the Blackhawks to the list of teams interested in what the Flyers may be offering before the Feb. 27 trade deadline.
Chicago general manager Dale Tallon and assistant general manager Rick Dudley scouted the Flyers-Rangers game Saturday afternoon.
Before the game, Flyers director of player development Don Luce had a long conversation with Tallon and Dudley, and between periods Holmgren chatted with Tallon.
Tallon said he was simply on an East Coast scouting mission, but he could be interested in reacquiring Flyers left wing Kyle Calder. Calder led the Blackhawks with 26 goals last season and was traded to Philadelphia for center Michal Handzus. Calder has just eight goals in 45 games with the Flyers.
