NHL Trade Rumors 2011: Flyers Should Keep The Phone On The Hook

As we all know February is almost here, a month characterized by trade rumors preceding the trade deadline.

And it seems no team is surrounded by rumors more than the Philadelphia Flyers and their General Manager Paul Holmgren, who, rumor has it, is looking to make a significant move by the deadline.

Paul, I just have one question: "Why?" The Flyer's are number one in the NHL, they lead the league in goals scored (174) and goal differential (+44).

They are arguably the deepest team in the league, both at the forward position and on defense. They have in Sergei Bobrovsky, a solid net-minder, and the reliable veteran Brian Boucher as a backup.

The team is the strongest and most well-balanced in the league, with a near-perfect combination of youth and age, size and speed, skill and grit and to top it all off, they have a tenacious group of determined leaders.

So Paul, I ask again, "Why? What is it you think your team needs that they don't already have?"

In this slide show I will make a case against the Flyers making a move at the trade deadline, highlighting some implications that may occur, not only this season and post-season, but may jeopardize the future of the Flyers team.
