They absolutely need to shed salary, and trading Carle makes a ton of sense. I could also see them putting Hartnell on waivers and seeing if anyone picks him up if a trade can't be worked out.
Just wanted to warn you about Leighton to help you prepare psychologically.

On the bright side, if Boosh wins the Cup and the Conn Smythe, Leighton will only be the backup!

I don't want to trade Carle, he is playing very well in big minutes, so I'd prefer to deal Briere or Hartnell, if they would waive, or even Gagne, who only has one year left iirc. So hard to predict what will happen, given that I suspect they've already been there, done that, said no thanks to Homer. Have to hope it doesn't come down to waiving Hartnell. Surely he would waive before being picked up by the Oilers, Leafs or Hurricanes on waivers? At least he would have some control over destination. I can't imagine any team passing him up on waivers, even at his salary...

Whatever happens, there will be no dull moments for us long suffering Flyer fans.
