The Philadelphia Flyers will likely sign at least one top tier free agent this summer as the team needs a little bit of help to improve on last season. 

We heard the rumblings of a possible Wayne Simmonds for Dougie Hamilton trade, however that never materialized and Hamilton went to the Carolina Hurricanes. 

Hextall has stated that the Flyers are looking to re-sign Simmonds and have the money to be a player during free agency. 

One of the Flyers likely top targets is Toronto Maple Leafs' forward James van Riemsdyk. 

The 29 year old winger is a consistent scorer and just put up 36 goals last season for the Leafs with the highest shooting percentage of his career at 14.5%. 

The only road block between the Flyers landing JVR is that the sniper is likely looking for a six or seven year deal, something the Flyers might not be willing to cough up. 

Would you be willing to give JVR a six or seven year deal?
