NHL Trade Winds: A Week of Surprises

The majority of players involved in the recent trades have transitioned nicely to their new teams, yet a handful of exceptions remain. An interesting case is that of Ryan Johansen's move to the Philadelphia Flyers following a trade with the Colorado Avalanche.

A Strategic Play: Balancing the Books

The acquisition of Ryan Johansen by the Philadelphia Flyers was mostly a strategic move following their earlier acquisition of Sean Walker.
Upon Johansen's arrival, the Flyers promptly placed him on waivers, with obvious intent to reassign him to the AHL.

A Potential Rebellion: Johansen's Discontent

The plans for Johansen, however, might face an unexpected hurdle. His recent behaviour suggests he may not accept the demotion willingly.
This isn't Johansen's first rodeo. His past interactions with Head Coach John Tortorella during his career in Columbus was lined with problems.
"Emerging issues with injuries raise questions about Ryan Johansen's willingness to join LV. This unexpected development complicates his status, potentially impacting future financial decisions."

"Throughout the season, Johansen has navigated through various minor injuries, presenting a fresh challenge. Considering a summer buyout, this would result in financial implications for both PHI & NAS, affecting their salary caps over the next two seasons."

The scenario in Philadelphia, particularly Johansen's health concerns, could also complicate any potential buyout options, given the league's restrictions on buying out injured players.
