Maybe the Phillies’ theme song _ High Hopes _ should be transferred to the Flyers.
In a deal designed to make them one of the league’s top Stanley Cup contenders next season, the Flyers acquired the right to Phoenix goalie Ilya Bryzgalov on Tuesday for minor-league winger/enforcer Matt Clackson and a third-round draft pick in 2012.
If they sign Bryzgalov, they will also give up a conditional pick, which will not be a first- or second-rounder, general manager Paul Holmgren said.
