The chatter surrounding Philadelphia Flyers forward Wayne Simmonds is building as it's looking more than likely that he's dealt before the trade deadline. 

According to The Athletic's Pierre LeBrun, two Western Conference teams are scouting Simmonds with lots of interest. 

LeBrun reports that both the Nashville Predators and Winnipeg Jets are thinking about adding Simmonds for his physicality during the teams playoff run. 

Both teams currently sit tied for first place in the Central Division and would be likely be willing to give up a first round pick.
