Vancouver Canucks- Philadelphia Flyers
 
To:
:flyers
D Keith Ballard
2013 2nd round pick
To:
:nucks
F Matt Read

Philly bolsters their D and Nucks get a versatile player. Fair or not?

JVR21 03-05-2013 11:30 AM

"Bolsters their d"? We have no need for Ballard, and Read is one of our top 4 forwards this year. No way.

Kelly 03-05-2013 11:31 AM

Why would Philly do this? Read has more value than Ballard and a 2nd easily.

Flyers can't do this considering how cheap Read is and how expensive Ballard is.

Flyers won't do this because Read is an incredibly versatile forward who was, before his recent injury, leading the team in goal scoring.

No reason for the Flyers to make this deal. That said, I do like Ballard and would welcome him in Philly. Just wouldn't give up Read (or anything close to as valuable as Read) for Ballard. I think the Canucks would have to accept something minimal to rid themselves of Ballard and his contract. He's not really a bad player, but he hasn't worked in Vancouver and his contract is an albatross.

Would be a nice trade for the canucks. Not so much for the flyers.

PayItForward 03-05-2013 11:45 AM

Nope. Read was playing well before his injury and is really cheap. Makes no sense to trade him.

JayB 03-05-2013 11:58 AM

Zach Kassian.

BillDineen 03-05-2013 11:59 AM

Not even close to fair.

Sticks and Pucks 03-05-2013 11:59 AM

Philly laughs and hangs up.

GoneFullHextall 03-05-2013 12:16 PM

why do people keep wanting to trade top 6 forwards on the Flyers for defenseman. Especially forwards on good contracts like Read.
Pass. its not even close to fair value.

JDinkalage Morgoone 03-05-2013 12:40 PM

I do this trade if Vancouver eats all of Ballard's salary, then eats Ballard, and then craps out Zack Kassian in a Flyer uniform. I'd do it.

:yo:

Hilarious... totally agree, why the hell would the Flyers do this deal?

Stizzle 03-05-2013 01:09 PM

Matt Read is quite valuable. This is not even close.

Because it helps Vancouver....duh.

Back in realityville, flyers pass.

HyPnOtiK 03-05-2013 01:28 PM

Lol, no? Not close... Flyers don't need any bottom 4 defenseman, they need a top pairing D

Liferleafer 03-05-2013 01:31 PM

Is this the same Ballard who has been scratched the past few games?

Definately worth a top 6 player.;)

Nuclear 03-05-2013 01:34 PM

Matt Reid + 2nd for Kesler

We need someone to keep Pronger company on LTIR.

Pip 03-05-2013 01:51 PM

Ballard isn't worth Reid, he just isn't.
