Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher: Wings Nix James van Riemsdyk Deal

Mar 3, 2023 7:52 PM

James van Riemsdyk was headed to the Red Wings at the NHL trade deadline -- until he wasn't.

During a fairly quiet deadline day on Friday, one of the biggest attention-getting moves was one that didn't happen. There were reports that the Flyers were trading van Riemsdyk to the Red Wings. But van Riemsdyk wasn't traded to Detroit or anywhere else before the deadline. He remains with the Flyers ahead of unrestricted free agency this summer.

According to Flyers GM Chuck Fletcher, the two teams had agreed on a trade that would have sent van Riemsdyk to Detroit for a draft pick, with Philadelphia retaining part of his $7 million cap hit. But the deal was contingent on the Red Wings trading a forward off their roster to make room for van Riemsdyk. When that didn't happen, the whole deal was scuttled.

Patrick Kane: 'Trade Rumors Are Just Rumors'

Sep 22, 2022 3:10 PM

Patrick Kane is well aware he's been the subject of rampant trade speculation for months. The Chicago Blackhawks' winger just doesn't believe the hype.

"It was all just rumors," Kane said on Thursday from Chicago's training camp media availability. "A lot of the rumors are just rumors, maybe people looking for things to talk about in August when nothing's really going on with hockey, right? I don't think there have been any legitimate discussions between other teams and the Blackhawks."

The 33-year-old is entering the final season of his eight-year, $84 million contract, right as Chicago is knee-deep in a rebuild that could go on for years.
