If there is one thing that every team values, it is young, experienced defensemen.

Since most teams that possess these assets like to hang onto them, there aren't many on the market. However, Elliotte Friedman made a shocking announcement today that one would soon be made available.

Ivan Provorov of Philadelphia possesses all the skills necessary to be a good player for any team. Although he hasn't been a perfect fit in Philadelphia, he has the potential to be a top-pairing defender given the appropriate environment and team.

Provy could be a trade candidate. Not imminent, but likely you'll hear his name out there.


A lot of mutual frustration. Flyers thinking is it time for him to go somewhere else. It hasn't worked as well as it could've and should've in Philadelphia


Provorov would be a fantastic addition at 25 years old and under contract until 2026 at a fair $6.75 million annually.
