Philadelphia Flyers Trade Rumors: Ryan Miller to Flyers?

October 29th, 2013 by Mike Pantaleone | Filed under Flyers, General, Hockey.

According to Hockey Central insider Doug MacLean and Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos, the two believe the Philadelphia Flyers and Ryan Miller could potentially be a good fit.

From the article:

Hockey Central insider Doug MacLean suggested the Philadelphia Flyers as a good fit for Miller, who could finally stabilize the team’s crease issues. In order for Philly to make a trade for Miller, however, MacLean believes Miller would need to be willing to sign long-term with the Flyers. It won’t make sense to surrender future assets for a rental.

More from Nick Kypreos:

Miller, who has a no-trade clause, won’t approve a move to Canada. Philly is a team willing to deal before Christmas. Ray Emery, say, could be sent to Buffalo in a package centered on draft picks and become the backup to Jhonas Enroth — who deserves a shot at being a full-time starter.

It has been said that Miller would like to relocate to a “warmer climate”, more specifically, somewhere in California. But with the money that the Flyers would be willing to throw at him, I wonder if that changes his mind a little bit.

While I know Mason has played well, this could possibly explain why Emery has been kept off the ice as much as he has. Going into the season, the goalie tandem was supposed to be more of a 50/50 split. It hasn’t been. Perhaps they’re holding Emery out of the line-up for just such a trade. Very interesting stuff.

    Mason has been great, this team can’t score, and they’re talking about trading for a goalie?
