We'll see what Murray does though, he hasn't been afraid to deal picks so far this year. I think he wants to do a Flyers rebuild, and get back into the playoffs next year. We'll see what happens this summer anyways.

Edit: Zenator1, the difference between Ottawa and Toronto is that Ottawa has their core players already locked into contracts. Ottawa can't go into a three or four year rebuilding process unless they give up on that core. Toronto isn't in the same boat, so saying that they're both rebuilding teams who won't trade youth isn't very accurate.
that's the reason why Ottawa needs to hang on to guys like Karlsson and their 1st rounder this year. Because they have their core locked up they need some cheap help to fill out the roster.
