That was a total mirage, as their recent 2-9-4 record indicates. It's a poorly constructed team that is now missing 3 of their top-6 forwards. That pick could very well end up in the top-10 by seasons end, which is good enough value to move Danny for, all things considered.

I didn't vote, because it's pretty obvious what the Flyers are going to try to do, regardless of what you or I think should be done. It's the same thing every team does in their position in the standings at the trade deadline.

That may all be true, but if we can't get proper value for him, then I don't trade him. Should we just get rid of him for a bag pucks?

I'm not trying to prove anything. There's really nothing to prove. No team in the Flyers current position ever does what you are suggesting. It just doesn't happen.
