NHL Rumors:  Jeff Carter, Caleb Jones, and Erik Gustafsson

Is Jeff Carter a possible Philadelphia Flyers target? Jordan Hall of NBC Sports Philadelphia:  As Jeff Carter and the Los Angeles Kings played in Philadelphia last week, the question inevitably got asked. Would the winger like to return to the Flyers?

I think we can thank Mark Spector for this… Oilers GM Ken Holland and Rick Curran, the agent for UFA RW Zack Kassian, have spoken several times and appear to be finding common ground. My sense: T
