The majority of chatter around the Philadelphia Flyers right now strictly centers around Wayne Simmonds, however the Flyers are looking to make some moves.
One thing general manager Ron Hextall will likely look at doing is strengthening the center depth at the NHL level.
The team currently has Claude Giroux, Sean Couturier, Nolan Patrick and Scott Laughton at center along with Jori Lehtera and possibly Valtteri Filppula if they bring him back.
Giroux has played on the wing and the team might feel that Lehtera and Filppula aren't the best options so they've gotten in contact with one of the best ones on the free agent market.
According to Brandon Sommermann of PhillyFanLife, the Flyers have been in contact with free agent Tyler Bozak.
Unfortunately for the Flyers, it looks like Bozak is asking for $6million a season which could be too rich for the Flyers. Of course free agency negotiations have just begun, so Bozak could lower his price, or depending on demand could actually raise his price.
Do you think Bozak would be a good fit for the Flyers?
Update : Confirmed. #Flyers did contact Bozak’s agent. Seems Bozak’s asking price is too high for Flyers liking. Bozak’s rumored asking price is around $6M. Should get that number once teams starting bidding for his services. #FlyersTalk #LetsGoFlyers #EarnTomorrow https://t.co/pZhWfFknMl
