The trade mill has already started as Bob McKenzie noted in his Insider Trading segment, the Flyers are looking to potentially move Nicklas Grossmann to free up space for would-be rookie defenseman Samuel Morin.

He also sports a career 46.7 CORSI, which along with dinging the cap at $3.5M this and next season, doesn't inspire much confidence.
