Well apparently Steve Eminger and RJ Umberger are worth 1st rounders so who knows.

However, unless we're planning on replacing him with Shanahan or something and are very confident that JVR or Giroux will be ready to seriously contribute next season, then I wouldn't just give him away. The Flyers have the talent to be serious contenders this year, and if Biron (or Nitty) goes on a hot streak during the playoffs, we'd have a good shot. No sense in dumping NHL players for prospects that won't be ready for several years.
