Flyers obviously can't take Hammer/Spacek and the possibility of trading them to other teams is slim.
Understandable.

Understandable.

And that's a little dose of reality for you.
I never said anything about realistically acquiring Halak or Price. It's nice to think about, but I never said anything like that. Realistically, the teams make bad trading partners unless we do acquire some picks/assets by trading away one of our d-men before making a deal with Montreal. I never said anything contrary to that fact. So why are you claiming my "reality" is comical just because I said that neither JVR nor Giroux is worth Price or Halak?
