Picture of Carter Hart. Will the Buffalo Sabres or San Jose Sharks make a trade for the Flyers goalie?
The latest NHL trade rumors have the Buffalo Sabres and San Jose Sharks interested in Philadelphia Flyers goalie Carter Hart.

Carter Hart’s name has often appeared in the NHL trade rumors mill since the Philadelphia Flyers acquired goalie Cal Peterson from the LA Kings in June.

The rumors are now picking up again with the Flyers recent signing of goalie Samuel Ersson who was signed to a two-year contract extension worth $2.9 million.

Carter Hart headed to the Buffalo Sabres or San Jose Sharks?

Carter Hart is signed to a reasonable contract worth $3.98 million and is still under team control after this season because he is still a restricted free agent. This is not stopping NHL trade rumors from circulating about Hart.

With rumors tough to come by at this time of the season and NHL analysts on vacation, these hypothetical trades below are just from what’s trending online and in forum boards.

The Buffalo Sabres desperately want to make the playoffs and need a goalie. Carter Hart is the perfect option, and they have the assets to pull off a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers.

The San Jose Sharks are cleaning house and rebuilding, but they need a goalie. Plus, if the Sharks decide not to re-sign Hart to an extension next summer, they could flip him to a playoff-contending team next off-season for some high-end draft capital.

It will be interesting to see what the Flyers do with Hart? We will soon find out as training camp is just around the corner.

What are NHL fans saying about a Flyers Carter Hart trade to the Buffalo Sabres or San Jose Sharks

The Montreal Canadiens should target Carter Hart and have Carey Price mentor him.

I really hope his name is cleared in the scandal and a trade to the Buffalo Sabres makes perfect sense. Can’t have Eric Comrie or Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen as your starting goalie and expect to be a playoff team.

The Flyers need to keep Hart. He needs to be part of the rebuild as #1 goalies are just to hard to find.
