Philadelphia Flyers: Ilya Bryzgalov Amnesty Card and Bobby Ryan Trade?

Rumors are swirling that the Philadelphia Flyers may use their second amnesty option on Ilya Bryzgalov. But, gossip isn't reality just yet.

Dealing the amnesty card

Along with many other media members who cover the team, I speculated in a late-April feature that Paul Holmgren might opt to exile 'Bryz' for money reasons. 

However, the Flyers' top front office boss will likely want to have another goaltending piece in place if he does make this move. 

Tim Thomas is old, but available, in case any Jonathan Bernier deal with the Los Angeles Kings is too costly. There are some other crease options available as well. 

Duck on the Schuylkill Expressway?

Bobby Ryan's name has been mentioned as a future Flyer for a number of years. 

Tim Panaccio reports that the Anaheim Ducks are working on a deal that could send Ryan to the Flyers for Braydon Coburn and their first-round pick (11th overall) in the draft.  Other options are being discussed as well. 

That type of trade would make sense, as a salary exchange would have to occur in order to keep Philadelphia withing the confines of the salary cap. 

The soon-to-be announced Mark Streit signing will be just one element in a very interesting off-season.
