It's no secret the Red Wings are shopping Petr Mrazek as the trade deadline approaches.
The question, however, is how much the Wings can get for their troubled goaltender. Mrazek is rumored to have some character issues, and despite his talent will be a free agent at the end of the season.
With Brian Elliott out, wouldn't be surprised to see #Flyers kick tires on goalies. #RedWings actively shopping Petr Mrazek, whom they are not expected to qualify this summer as RFA. Exact situation how Steve Mason ended up in PHI. Lehner + Dell among others on TradeBait.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) February 13, 2018
The Wings are dangling Mrazek to teams in need of a goaltender, and the Flyers fit that bill. Philly lost Brian Elliott last week (he's likely back in six weeks), and could use a fill-in goaltender until he returns.
Mrazek would be welcomed in Philadelphia, but not for what the Red Wings are asking, which is reportedly a third-round pick.
According to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press: "Petr Mrazek is not drawing interest – he was offered to Philadelphia after the Flyers lost Brian Elliott last week (he’s out five-to-six weeks) for an asking price of a third-round pick and the Flyers declined."
So, as much as the Wings would like to move at least one of their goaltenders, they might have better luck with Jimmy Howard.
