According to Anthony Di Marco, the Philadelphia Flyers are on the lookout for options to move defenseman Ryan Ellis' contract. At 32 years old, Ellis hasn't played an NHL game since November 2021, and many believe that his hockey career may be over.

The Flyers, however, are not keen on giving up assets just to get rid of Ellis. Instead, they are "more than open" to taking on a short-term player who may be making too much money for their current team.
Di Marco uses the Evgenii Dadonov/Shea Weber swap as an example of what the Flyers might be looking to achieve, in comparison to the Flyers roster and what they would have to give up to get rid of Ryan Ellis' contract, you can potentially compare Nick Seeler as a fit, or Rasmus Ristolainen, that equals Evgeni Dadonov in the Shea Weber trade.
It's clear that the Flyers are in a tricky situation with Ellis. While they don't want to give up assets to move his contract, they also cannot afford to have a player on their roster who is not able to contribute. It will be interesting to see how the Flyers proceed with Ellis' contract as the off-season approaches.
