JVR Delaying Surgery Could Be Delaying His Trade, Says Howard Eskin

NBC10's Howard Eskin has a report about JVR holding up a minor surgery which in turn could be holding up a trade for Rick Nash.

NBC10′s Howard Eskin reported over the weekend that James van Riemsdyk has been holding up having surgery performed on his torn labrum and that this delay in turn could be holding up a potential trade of the Flyers’ forward to Columbus for Rick Nash, a player long rumored to be on Homer’s wishlist.

Quite the bizarre story but nothing should surprise you during the Flyers offseason these days.

Do you buy it? Would you be upset if the Flyers sent JVR packing? He’s been one of the more polarizing figures on this team, stepping up huge in the postseason two years back and flashing moments like that this season mixed in with plenty of lackluster efforts.
