NHL Surprise: Major Deal Cancelled at the Very Last Second
BY MARCO MARCH 3, 2023 (3:25 PM)
Several reputable informants announced a trade sending forward James Van Riemsdyk to the Detroit Red Wings. Everything seemed to indicate that it was almost official, until a last minute turn of events.
Something very unusual happened behind the scenes, and the trade fell through at the last second.
This is a very disappointing realization for Philadelphia Flyers fans, especially since JVR was the biggest available name left on the day, according to many.
The 33-year-old has 23 points in 41 games this season. He will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.
