Today is the NHL trade deadline.

And the Flyers are sellers for the third straight season.

Kevin Hayes is a prime trade target.

“I can argue all I want to anyone. I have zero say in it,” Hayes said.

“I guess, I’m 30 years old, having a career year, I think that’s a good thing. I’ll argue that it is. I don’t know if they see me as a center here in the long run. I’ve read that they need centers.”

Hayes has 17 goals and 31 assists for 48 points in 60 games. His career best is 55 points and 25 points.

The 31-year-old Hayes carries a $7,142,857 cap hit with three years left on his deal. The Flyers are looking to get younger. His value is high and he should get some interest.

“It’s a fair question,” GM Chuck Fletcher said,

“It’ll depend on market and opportunity and fit. I’ve expressed to teams, look, we’re open to ideas and we’re willing to listen on lots of different types of scenarios. Without addressing Kevin specifically — because I don’t know if it’s fair to single out names — clearly we’d like to get even younger if we can. If we can do that, then we’re going to try to do that.”

Teams have been more interested in the Flyer expiring contracts.
