12:57 PM ET 03.20 | Flyers defenseman Matt Read has had a heck of a season, the least of which is playing through a rib injury and earning the respect of teams and players around the league. Read is one of the few bright spots for the Flyers this season but could get considerable attention on the trade market. Elliotte Friedman suggests that that the Calgary Flames could be an interested party with assistant GM John Weisbrod apparently having been after the defenseman for years.

If I had one question to ask Holmgren it would be why did he leave the team without a competent backup goalie.
