Three Targets For Flyers At 2020 NHL Trade Deadline

For the first time during his albeit brief tenure as General Manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, Chuck Fletcher is in a real position to buy at the Trade Deadline. Around this time last season, the Flyers were on the outside looking in on the playoff bubble, not really ever posing as a genuine threat to earn a spot in the postseason. Fletcher went on to sell Wayne Simmonds to the Nashville Predators knowing full-well that going after rentals wouldn’t be wise for the team, and Philadelphia missed the playoffs for the second time in three years.
