20 years old and already an absolute bust...

We should buy the Erie Otters, rename them the Erie Flyers and make them our minor league club (more on that later), trade the whole roster and prospects for all the 1st round draft picks, trade 5-6 of those first round picks for Ekblad, then draft Josh Ho first overall.

Get Snider to force the NHL to let him come up to the Flyers... bypassing all rules about the draft and ages of players, giving the Flyers an exemption to have all NHL rights to OHL players Erie draft, call up the entire Erie roster, as anyone past 18 years old who is not tearing up the NHL is a bust, and just hope by the time Ho is 20 he is a 60-70 point scorer... if he isn't trade him for Jaeger White, as he is obviously a bust.

Actually, scrap that, trade Schenn straight up for Lucas Lidstrom, hear that 8 year old really has flashes of his father, hear he is big for his age... like 4 feet 6, and has some offensive knack, and have instinctive positoning, maybe not a sure fire rookie all star, but he'd probably slot in well in Carle's postion when we trade him (as Carle would probably would look bad in the AHL), for Matthew Gagne, Gags jr may need some time to develop... as he can't really skate yet, but I'm sure by the time he is 5-6 he will be and NHL regular, probably better than Schenn anyway.

Seriously, after 18 NHL games people are writing him off... not everyone is Crosby, Lindros, Gretzsky, not that many players even play in the NHL younger than 20, never mind tear it up.
