There may be a trade between the Philadelphia Flyers and Montreal Canadiens that materializes in the future, but during the season it never happened despite both teams best attempts. The deal is rumoured to involve Jeff Petry and James Van Reimsdyk, both veterans who would need a change of scenery, according to Eric Engels.

The hurdle that was never crossed, was the discussion of the prospect going with Van Reimsdyk to the Canadiens. Habs would retain salary when moving Petry, percentage was never a topic discussed either.
However given both players' seasons, it seems like a fresh start wouldn't be a terrible idea, especially Van Reimsdyk as a veteran who could offer leadership to young guys like Nick Suzuki and Cole Caulfield, would be a great add to the Martin St. Louis era-Habs.
Per Engels, this trade option is likely to be discussed once again during the offseason. It would however require for Petry to lift his no-trade clause, he who is believed to have the Flyers on his list of 15 teams where he does not want to be traded. Could he agree to accept a move in order to join his family in the United States since his wife got mad at her living conditions in Montreal?

Engels mentioned the Dallas Stars and Detroit Red Wings as potential suitors, also. But it is said that as the season ends, Hughes will deal Petry and his time as a Hab is over.
What tricks will Kent Hughes have for us post-season? Will this be a quick re-tool like Columbus?
