The Philadelphia Flyers continue their search for a general manager and have stepped up the interview process.
While the Flyers look for that new GM, just a couple of days after Paul Holmgren said he wouldn't make any significant roster changes in the mean time, it looks like he might try and make a significant roster change.
There's been reported interest by the Flyers in regards to William Nylander over the last month and the restricted free agent remains unsigned in Toronto. Nylander must sign a contract with the Leafs or somebody else before December 1st or he won't be eligible to play for the remainder of the 2018-19 season.
According to Frank Seravalli of TSN, Holmgren and Leafs general manager Kyle Dubas held discussions regarding Nylander since Ron Hextall has been fired.
Nylander would be a great addition for the Flyers or any team, however would you trust Holmgren to make a trade like this?
#Flyers are believed to be among the teams Kyle Dubas has connected with in recent days as he makes the rounds for “last call” on William Nylander. Not sure there is a fit, or how involved they were prior to regime change, but Dubas and Holmgren did chat.
