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.
