Popular Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds has been mentioned in trade rumors going back to last season. 

With the forward headed for free agency this summer, the team tanking with the worst record in the league and a new GM, it looks like it's going to happen.

NHL insider Bob McKenzie appeared on NBC Sports recently and mentioned that while the team hasn't reached an official decision on whether they'll re-sign him, McKenzie says it's more than likely Simmonds is gone. 

The high demand for a power forward heading into the playoffs will be too high for Chuck Fletcher to resist moving out a player he has no attachment to. 

While he had no evidence to link the two, The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun mentioned the Tampa Bay Lightning as a very interesting option. 

Are you ready to say goodbye to the 30 year old forward?
