Philly would pass on the deal without even thinking. It's a simple no for them I think. maybe if Eric Brewer was included they woudl think about it. With Jason Smith it is an instant no. There is a huge difference value wise between Smith and Brewer.
The Atlanta deal doesn't look too bad. Although Hurme is a waiver pickup with little value and Gamache is not expected to succeed in the NHL. I'm not sure a swap of picks would even be that valuable either if Altanta picks up Comrie and Chimera without giving up an NHL player.
