Come on get real yea Im sure it does make sense from an Oilers PoV the Flyers get bent over.
Then theres the people throwing Schenns name out there too. Let's be reality, Schenn's the best prospect period in the whole NHL was drafted 5 spots over Paajarvi in the same draft and you want Bob or Coburn? Really?
MPS = Couturier = Schenn in trade value right now. An even swap of one of those tow for MPS is more than fair. This deal would only happen IF the Flyers feel they need a #2 LW behind JVR AND we feel that we have more than enough center depth to be able to trade one of Schenn/Couturier. Also, it would require Edm desire to trade a #2 LW for a #2 center in Schenn/Couturier. It's not out of the realm of possibility but not one that I see either team making right now. If say at this years draft the Flyers trade a guy they feel can be their next Mike Richards then we could certainly part with one of Couturier or Schenn.
Coburn + 1st is all that we SHOULD be giving up to get MPS but I doubt that would be enough for Edm to move him. MPS really isn't NEEDED from our persepctive so there is no real NEED for us to over pay for him. While there may be a potential for a trade here, I really don't foresee one happening any time soon.
