3 Free Agent Targets for the Flyers

View image | gettyimages.com It’s no secret that the Flyers have little flexibility, with their salary cap issues and locked up bad contracts. In my opinion, it is highly unlikely that nonproducing players like Lecalvier and Read be moved this offseason, so free agent veterans will likely not be on the Flyers’ roster next season. However, if Ron Hextall pulls off a miracle...
