The Philadelphia Flyers are looking to lose some salary during the NHL expansion draft for Seattle and they might get their wish.
Some reports earlier this week had the possibility of the team losing either Jakub Voracek or James van Riemsdyk however the loss might come from the blueline.
According to Sam Carchidi of the Inquirer, it's more than likely Kraken coach Dave Hakstol looks to be reunited with Shayne Gostisbehere.
Just like Voracek and JVR, Gostisbehere is expected to be left exposed during the expansion draft and he could give Hakstol a tool he's familiar with and a fresh start for Ghost.
Gostisbehere is well aware he might be the one on his way out of town.
“Obviously I want to stay here,” Gostisbehere, said at the end of the season. “I’ve built a nice life here with my fiancee, and obviously I want to be here, but it’s a business. It is what it is. The expansion draft is gonna happen. If you get picked, you’re wanted and you could definitely take positives from that. But it definitely weighs on your mind. I think in general, you’ve just got to go and put your best foot forward, go into the summer and do what you can control.”
Would you be OK with losing Ghost to Seattle?
