Flyers chasing Sharks LW Ryane Clowe

The Flyers are making a run at Sharks winger Ryane Clowe, according to reports here at the draft in Montreal. Darren Dreger of TSN reported via Twitter that Philadelphia is one of four teams trying to acquire his rights before he becomes a restricted free agent on July 1. The other teams are the Los Angeles Kings, the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the Minnesota Wild. The Sharks are also reportedly making attempts to re-sign Clowe.

Last night, Dreger reported that the Flyers had originally expressed their interest in Clowe, but that the Sharks had an asking price of either Claude Giroux or Scott Hartnell -- two players the Flyers are not interested in giving up. The parties are still talking, though, so the deal isn't broken. With four other teams in the running, however, the Flyers have a tough climb

Last offseason, Clowe re-signed with San Jose for one-year at $1.6 million. He will certainly garner a higher wage in his next contrac. After missing most of 2007/08 due to injury, Clowe played in 71 games this past season and scored 20 goals to go along with 30 assists.
