So what's the correct rumour....a top 4 D-man and a veteran forward to sell to the fan base or Philly getting scared off over Florida wanting Coburn and Giroux?
What Florida supposedly wanted from Philly doesn't fit what they supposedly want in an offer.
The answer is simply Florida wants really good value. They need a piece or two back that helps them make the playoffs this year (i.e. they need a D-man back and some forward depth) and they need a little something for the future as well. I don't think the players that can help Florida now need to be under contract past this season or RFAs though that is clearly the more ideal situation for Florida. If one of those guys is a UFA then the future something has to be a better future something.
