The Philadelphia Flyers had a very disappointing season last year. A mixture of injuries and COVID, the team hardly was able to ice their best players and were missing someone every night.
The team made a bunch of offseason trades to bring in people like Cam Atkinson
, Ryan Ellis
& Rasmus Ristolainen
but it wasn't enough to overcome these injuries and they ended up finishing near the bottom of the league. The team chose not to enter a rebuild in the offseason, instead they hired John Tortorella and just hoped that they had an off year and all will be back to normal this upcoming season.
According to Reporter Marco D'Amico of Montreal Hockey Now, a trade could be brewing to help the Flyers become a contender again.
The Montreal Canadiens are not a team that wants to be contending for a playoff position this upcoming season, while the Flyers are. The Canadiens have quite a few players that they should be trading away in exchange for draft picks, and apparently the Flyers could be interested in the services of Christian Dvorak
"If the Flyers offer a conditional 2023 second-round pick, which becomes a 2023 first-round pick (if they make the playoffs), it would make a lot of sense for both sides. If the Flyers miss the playoffs, it will be a high second round pick, if they make the playoffs, it will be a later first round pick. There could be a difference of about 15-20 picks."
A trade that would make sense for both parties would be something along the lines of a conditional first round pick that turns into a 2nd + another bonus if the Flyers fail to make the playoffs with Dvorak.
