Monster deal between Flyers and Blues to be finalized tomorrow
Since the beginning of the evening, there have been talks of a big deal between the Philadelphia Flyers and the St. Louis Blues.

On the Flyers’ side, we know that Kevin Hayes and his hefty $7.14 million contract for the next three seasons would be part of the swap.

Carter Hart could also very well be part of this exchange, as we know that talented defenseman Tony DeAngelo would no longer be available. He should be traded tomorrow to the Hurricanes, where he played last year.

DeAngelo’s salary would be partially withheld, and the Flyers would get a prospect from Carolina, as reported by Pierre LeBrun

Travis Konecny and Scott Laughton wouldn’t be part of the trade either, according to David Pagnotta.

Although reports of a possible trade between the Flyers and Blues have been circulating for several hours now, Flyers reporter Anthony SanFilippo said the deal would not be completed tonight.

The Flyers are obviously looking to acquire an additional first-round pick for the upcoming draft.

The Blues have three first-round picks (#10, #25 and #29).

Kevin Weekes said that one of these three picks would be part of the trade with the Blues.

According to SanFilippo, one of the players involved in the Blues’ trade would be a defenseman, possibly Torey Krug. However, he has a no-trade clause and will have to exercise it voluntarily to leave the club.

On the other hand, Flyers general manager Daniel Brière is reportedly looking to ” flip” him to a team to which he would like to be traded. Travis Sanheim and Kevin Hayes would be two players included in the transaction.

According to Jeremy Rutherford, The Athletic ‘s reporter covering the St. Louis Blues, it’s official that neither Nick Leddy, Colton Parayko nor Justin Faulk have been offered.

They all have no-trade clauses, which narrows the list down to just Torey Krug, or close to it.

This whole transaction seems very complicated, and there may be further details about this trade tomorrow morning, Sunday.

I think we’re in for a blockbuster trade tomorrow. Daniel Brière is really trying to put himself on the map with trades of this magnitude.

If he can get at least one, if not two, of the Blues’ first-round picks, plus a Carolina prospect for DeAngelo, I think he could easily come out on top.

In gusto

– A good contract for a good backup.

– Reimer wouldn’t say no to playing for the Montreal Canadiens.

– What do you think?

– Another scoreless game for Jonathan Sirois.

– Interesting.
