I mentioned this here and on various social media outlets, August is the dog days of summer for hockey fans AND hockey writers. However, things got very interesting for one former Ranger; Kevin Hayes.
TSN Insider, Frank Servalli was on a podcast and stated someone who knows Kevin well informed him that the only way he would sign with the Flyers is if they overpay.
When this news got out there, Ryan Whitney who is a cohost of the popular Spittin’ Chiclets podcast tweeted on the situation. That also prompted a reply from Seravalli.
Regardless if it’s true or not, this certainly puts Kevin Hayes in a bad spot. Many around the league felt the Flyers did overpay for his services. If Hayes gets off to a rough start, the fans in Philly (who have long memories) won’t make it any easier for him to get out of the slump.
