That said, we don't have our first rounder this year and I can't imagine Philly lets him walk with only a 2nd as compensation.
This year? What do you mean by that?

The idea is bad not because of Simmonds but because of Dean Lombardi and his opinion regarding offer sheets which he has expressed in public many times. It would destroy his credibility like a soap bubble and his credibility is even more important because of current Kings situation.
