Hamhuis to Flyers rumors abound but nothing has changed, really

As expected, a flurry of activity tonight surrounding Dan Hamhuis, as rumors are starting to fly that the Nashville Predators are working on a trade with Philadelphia. Of course, in these days where most all sports news is broken via Twitter, we get wild speculation and guessing, sometimes even from team beat writers.

Comcast Sportsnet reporter Sarah Baicker first reported that the Flyers and Predators were talking, with very little in the way of details, other than “Parent may be in the mix, he may not be” and that there were a number of players being talked about.

Then CSN Flyers beat writer John Boruk got involved, first saying that the Flyers are not close to a deal with Nashville and that it’s more than just a Hamhuis for Ryan Parent trade, and that Dan Ellis was involved. He deleted that tweet (archived by BroadStHockey), and came back with:

I’m told Flyers are not close to a deal with Nashville as of Monday night. Dan Ellis NOT involved in a trade scenario...sorry.

So, as of now all we have is that the Flyers are talking to the Predators, they have made room under the salary cap to work a deal, that the Predators are most likely going to deal Hamhuis, the best fit would be the Flyers, but no firm deal is in place.

How is this any different than a couple of hours ago?
