I don't see Carle back with Philly next season because high price tag will be pretty high. JJ would take his spot on a similar deal JvR has now. I would prefer Stoll but I could see why L.A. would want to get Penner the heck out of town. Would probably be risky move for Philly trading JvR because it would be the third time in less than a year that the team signed a younger player to a long term deal only to flip him just afterwards. Not actually the message you want to send to your RFAs to be but I would love to get JJ in the O&B.
You're right on the partners thing but we wouldn't want Carle back. Maybe something just JvR and Johnson, with a little fine tuning.
