Dramatic turnaround coming in front of the Flyers net involving Carter Hart? Kent Hughes could have a solid option on the table

The situation with the Philadelphia Flyers is catastrophic.

After making a great attempt by hiring the colorful coach John Tortorella to straighten the team's drifting boat, it was another failure this year.

The Flyers are at a crossroads and everything indicates that the organization will go through a real rebuilding process soon, as the new general manager of the team, Daniel Brière, has confirmed big changes.




Dramatic turnaround coming to Philadelphia involving Carter Hart?

Noted Sportsnet tipster Elliotte Friedman, along with his 32 Thoughts podcast colleague Jeff Marek, dropped a bombshell about Flyers number one goalie Carter Hart.

"The Flyers love their young goalie Samuel Ersson, so I'm curious to see what happens with Carter Hart this summer." - Elliotte Friedman

Where it really gets interesting is when fellow goalie Jeff Marek adds this:

"Marek at intermission says they (Flyers management) are really starting to wonder about Carter Hart, with the emergence of Samuel Ersson.

They may extend Hart, but does he want to spend the best years of his career in what appears to be a complete teardown and rebuild in Philadelphia?" - Via NHL Watcher

So, in summary, the Flyers are questioning whether they should trade Hart in the summer, who would certainly have great trade value, thanks to an unexpected backup with Ersson.

This would be a very big deal to follow, as many teams would be very interested in acquiring the 24-year-old goaltender, who costs just under $4M for one more season before becoming a restricted free agent.

For obvious reasons, Kent Hughes and the Montreal Canadiens would definitely be at the top of the list to acquire Carter Hart. The latter would automatically become the Tricolore's number one goalie for many years to come.
