Pursue Ryan O'Reilly
 
Pursue, sorry.

Still holding out, should we give an offer sheet? Heard it mentioned on the radio after yesterday's game. Announcer thinks 5 year $20 million would get it done.

Thoughts?

i wouldn't mind it but the hate for the flyers league wide would continue to grow, especially among the fans.

We need another C? If we're offer sheeting anyone it better be OEL.

Prongo 02-10-2013 02:23 PM

I think a trade could become a possibility if he continues to hold out, which looks like he will do. Now I wouldn't go by anything the main board says for his value, but wouldn't really know what would be the asking price for him. He is a 55 point player and only 22. He holds a good amount of value but with the holdout you think it would be deminished some. Also we would need to make sure we can fit him under the cap with his contract demands. I know we all like our shiny new toy in Scott Laughton, but if he was the center piece going back to Colorado for him you have to make that deal. Of course Colorado fans will say schenn or couts like everyone else does these days, but they won't get them

Edit: also does he fit into our plans going forward. We know we need to get a big time defender at some point, would ror contract hurt us in doing so.

PALE PWNR 02-10-2013 02:26 PM

I don't think his points are why hes valued so much, hes supposed to be one of the better defensive C's in the league I think. If that is true I would consider something around Couturier.

GoneFullHextall 02-10-2013 03:56 PM

all joking aside, I am not sure he is what we should be looking for. Plus I think he is demanding 5 million per right now? I think in any event I think he would be too rich for the Flyers IMO.

97.5 talked about him Sat.

BleedOrange 02-10-2013 04:29 PM

I think we should take a pass here there is a reason he remains unsigned and hes not worth 5 mill a year.If he was avs would have him signed already time to keep our picks and prospects and develop our own.

Grabovski is worse defensively and is almost 30 years old is right aroudn the same point range at his peak and got 5.5. If ROR is as good as hes hyped hes worth 5

Phoenix would be REALLY stupid if they didn't match, even if we poison pilled it. I'd really say to offer sheet Rundblad.

Did they say anything interesting in terms of the Flyers interest or just that he might be able to be gotten by another club?

i dont want another small giroux forward on this team, if it was a 6-3 power forward/shooter, i'll take him.

Ryan O'Reilly would become our best defensive forward.

CootaRoo 02-10-2013 05:28 PM

Laughton+Cousins for ROR and then a 4 year 4M per contract would be a no brainer from our side (ROR is already basically Laughton's ceiling and only 22)... but does COL do it? I think that depends on the vitriol built up between the sides at this point, didn't ROR sign a contingent deal with a KHL team to try and use as leverage against COL? I can't imagine they enjoy each other's company atm.

Schenn Bros Pizza* 02-10-2013 06:30 PM

Only offer sheet worth it is OEL. OEL is what we need and I dont care what it takes to get him.

The Couturier Effect 02-10-2013 06:55 PM

Giroux, Schenn, Couturier, Laughton, Talbot, Briere (sometimes).

Yeah we need more centers.

Talbot is only marginally a centre, Briere (like you alluded to) is losing stock as a centre, and Schenn has been used a lot on wing. Plus, it's a better approach to stockpile centres and convert them to wingers than the other way around.

AslanRH 02-10-2013 07:27 PM

Colorado will match anything under the 5.065M threshold. However, I do think that if it comes to a trade something around Couturier (+) would be very possible.

GoneFullHextall 02-10-2013 07:32 PM

i dont think a offersheet for the guy is a good option. Personally the only "major" move I see happening is brining in someone who is a upgrade over the cluster**** of junk known as Gervais/Foster/Lilja

RoR is better than all of these guys minus Giroux. Hopefully in the near future Couturier will be added to this list, but as of now? no.

I actually think Gervais has been serviceable. Nothing fancy, but solid. Foster has been decent, love his shot. With that said, if we can get a guy like OEL (we cant), you obviously do it.

Gervias has been caught out position way too much. Thankfully Bryz has bailed him out on more then 1 occasion. Foster does have a nice shot. Everything else? meh.

I'd rather have Pietrangelo, but either would be great

Pietrangelo's price would be off the charts for the Flyers if he was available.

Just like OEL. It's gonna be hard to find a #1 defenseman through a trade without giving up a lot.
