JVR, Pyorala are in; Betts in limbo

    First-year wingers James van Riemsdyk and Mika Pyorala, each of whom had impressive training camps, were on the 22-man roster the Flyers submitted to the NHL Wednesday afternoon.

    Center Blair Betts was not.

    Betts, 29, is trying to make the team on a tryout contract. GM Paul Holmgren said he was still negotiating with Betts' agent, Steve Kotlowitz. Both sides appear to be at a stalemate.

     Betts, whose agent did not return phone calls, made $615,000 with the Rangers last season. He has excelled on faceoffs and the penalty kill in the preseason.

     The Flyers' youthful roster also includes defensemen Danny Syvret and Ole-Kristian Tollefsen. Syvret, 24, will start the season with Ryan Parent on the third defensive pairing.

         The Flyers begin their season Friday in Carolina.
