from Frank Seravalli of Frequent Flyers,
At the beginning of one of the most crucial weeks of the offseason, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren held a press conference on Monday to discuss the teamâs draft and free agency plans.
Hereâs a few quick hits from Mondayâs press conference:
âHolmgren laughed and said he âknew nothingâ when asked about a rumor circulating over the weekend about Columbus star Rick Nash vetoing a trade to the Flyers. Nashâs name has been linked the Flyers, Rangers, Sharks, Bruins and even Maple Leafs in recent weeks. Heâs expected to be dealt before July 1 rolls around.
âHolmgren said it would be unlikely that the Flyers would trade for the rights of any potential free agents before the July 1 free agency season opens.
