It was reported early this morning by NHL Trade Rumors that Gostisbehere will be scratched for a third consecutive game. Ghost has sat out for both of the Flyers last two wins, and tonight Ghost will not be dressing versus Columbus.
With the third scratch it has also been reported by NHL Trade Rumors that the Flyers management has received word from Ghost that he wants to be traded out of Philadelphia, and I don’t blame him. I don’t think this is entirely true. NHL Trade Rumors is the only site reporting on Ghost wanting out of Philly.
It doesn’t make sense to me that the Flyers would want to trade a 26 year old on a ridiculously team friendly deal. Also, Ghost loves it here. They also did not tag a source, just saying it came from Management. I wouldn’t hold you breathe on Gostisbehere being traded. I think that Ghost is taking this as a learning experience and is biding his time and coming back in a blaze of glory.
Wouldn’t mind buying a Gostisbehere Avalanche jersey though.
