Again this is about possibly getting a promising prospect (with that 8th pick) to replace/develop one of our anchor D men for now who would be able to contribute fairly quick and be a good cap hit. Then adding a very good winger at a good cap hit and then possibly even getting another asset. This is all about putting a product on the ice that is deeper yet still productive and affordable cap wise.
I'd rather have one guy who can put up 40 goals instead of 3 guys who can put up 45-55. It's better to have one person who can do that instead of the equivalent of an entire line doing it.
This trade would be grand if the Flyers needed to rebuild. I don't think we are at that point yet. Let's see how things play out in the next few seasons; such a trade doesn't seem truly necessary right now...especially since this is supposedly a weak draft year.
edit: I would love to have a good D prospect though...or ANY prospects.
Down in the basement, I've got a Craftsman lathe. Show it to the children when they misbehave.
