Dan Hamhuis trade update: Well…there is none

Here’s an update on the Dan Hamhuis to Philadelphia trade rumors: he hasn’t been traded yet, and there’s no deal in place. So essentially, we’re in the same boat as before.

Last night, a flurry of activity led many to believe
that a deal was close to being made that would send Ryan Parent to
Nashville in exchange for Hamhuis, with possibly some other players
mixed in.

This morning, there is still no word on that trade other
than a deal has not been made. Comcast Sportsnet reporter Tom Panaccio has this quote
from GM Paul Holmgren:

Rumblings out of
Canada that Hamuis to Flyers deal done but not announced. “Not true at
all,” says Flyers GM P. Holmgren this morning.

Of
course, there’s no denial that the two teams have been in trade talks
but this won’t be an easy transaction to make. The Flyers have limited
cap space and a limited amount of players they can trade; nearly half
the team has no trade clauses.

Still trying to find out where the
“rumblings” are coming from that Panaccio mentions. I have to see
anyone say that the deal was done, pending an announcement. We’ll keep
you updated.
