Flyers Very Interested In Canucks Kesler And Edler


According to reports from the Philadelphia Daily News, the Flyers have made a substantial offer to try and get Ryan Kesler out of Vancouver and, whats more, have also inquired about the availability of Canucks defenseman Alex Edler.

The Flyers have a number of young, talented players and prospects that would tantalize Vancouver: Schenn, Couturier and, quite possibly, Scott Laughton, the 20th overall pick at the 12 NHL Entry Draft that has 83 points in 51 for OHL Oshawa this year and captained Canada at the World Juniors.

Finally, the Flyers have shown an interest in Kesler before, signing him to an offer sheet in 2006. This would also suggest Keslers willingness to play in Philadelphia, important given hes got control over this situation via his no-trade clause.
