None of these players represent the future core of the team. If we could turn these into quality prospects, such as Krieder, Erixon, Nyquist and picks, and use those prospects to pry away Voynov from LA and Orlov from Washington we would have a young core of top quality defensive prospects this organization desperately needs. All it requires is facing reality: this team is not going far this year. Let's face reality, make the necessary trades. The team has the pieces to get very good defensive prospects.
While Carle and Jagr aren't the future of this team, Timonen and Coburn certainly are. Timonen has another year left and is still one of the best defenders in the league. If this team was not in the playoff hunt, ok get rid of him. But he is the anchor of the defense. Coburn is in his mid-20s and is a top 4 defender on any team. Carle I don't really care if they trade as long as they get a defender to replace him on top of what they should be getting to replace one of MAB or Gus. I don't care if they get it in a deal for Carle or in a deal for something else, but you can't get rid of Carle without replacing him. Jagr should simply not be going anywhere. This team is fighting for home ice in the playoffs, not looking to get a lottery pick. Come on, people. When did Philly fans become such *******?
