You know what, if the Flyers are going to be the Flyers and disrupt a good thing to go championship chasing again, Ryan Kesler might be the guy to do it for, mostly because of this:
Rangers had interest but were informed today that Ryan Kesler will not waive no-trade to come to New York, Post has learned.

As @NYP_Brooksie first reported, Rangers told this aft Kesler would not waive his ntc to rejoin Vigneault. No offer, but interest from NYR.

Of course, at this time of year there are all sorts of rumors about who said this and who said that, but Dreger is as solid as it comes. Reports yesterday said Kesler would accept a trade to Pittsburgh or Philadelphia. The Flyers are probably just trying to drive the price up on the Penguins, but stay tuned.
