1 more LD and they could ice 6 NHL caliber LDs though.

All joking aside, this is a laughable rumor.

Pens currently trying to figure out how to handle their logjam at D with POJ being the real deal, and they need forward depth

Eklund: - Penguins after Defensman

Obviously the deal would be:

Malkin, Pettersson, and Matheson for Johansen, Granlund, and Ekholm.

So not long ago the Flyers had so many d-men that they were going to trade one for Nylander.

Now they are suddenly looking to add Ekholm.

Solid rumour!

What do Burke and Hexy think...

The low profile trade rumor is Malkin to L.A. for one D-man in-system and future

Hockey Night reported last week that Ekholm could be shopped if the Preds continue to falter.
Gotta think the acquisition cost will be high given he has another year left and a low AAV. Preds will most certainly be looking for controllable assets starting with a first and an A+ prospect... translation they wont be taking other teams overpriced garbage for a premium D man so spare us all the stupid trade suggestions.

If Ekholm is available, every GM in the league who needs a D-man and can fit him in should be lining up around the block to at least take a crack at getting him. He's one of the last guys I want to see leave the team, but I understand that to fix the mess in Nashville, you'll have to give up something of value to get anything of value. Poile should be demanding the moon for him, but judging for DP's track record lately, he'll probably trade Ekholm and the Preds next two 1st Round Picks for a bubble defensemen and two prospects nobody's ever heard of. Whoever gets him is going to love him though.

I would kill to have him on our team, but my only concern is the expansion draft and who we would have to leave unprotected. I personally wouldn't make any big splashes until after.

This is dumb. We all know its Ovi not Malkin going to the Preds. Mallon is going to Chicago or LA!

To be fair before Flyers had Niskanen. Losing your #2 D is a pretty big loss

I would guess Ghost is a part of any potential deal for Ekholm.
