After a busy first day of free agency, one that involved signing two goalies (the primary one being Ray Emery), the Philadelphia Flyers have been quiet for the past 24 hours, not making any moves.
With several of the big names moving/signing over the past couple days (Derek Roy, Viktor Stalberg, Jerome Iginla, Bobby Ryan), many wonder who the Flyers might be interested in bringing in on the offensive end, especially at the wing. Names such as Damien Brunner, Mikhail Grabovsky, and re-signing Simon Gagne have been thrown around.
One person who the Flyers will not be adding, however, is Jaromir Jagr, NHL insider Josh Rimer told Khandyman Sports. The Flyers have not contacted Jagr or even met with him to this point, which likely stems from their current lack of cap space and his age (41).
While he had a solid season with the Flyers two years ago, with 19 goals and 35 assists (20 power-play points), he is not the type of player who the Flyers are looking to add this offseason. Smart move by Paul Holmgren to stay away from him.
