Plus, he would play with a good friend in Simmonds. (just think of all the "other black guy" jerseys). I think he would be what the flyers need in a tough checking division (6'3" 230lbs).

I realy like Voracek but he could be expendable with other speedy playmaker types like Read and Wellwood in the lineup. He is a strong two way player and a good playmaker that would fit into Hitch's system.

I assume the Flyers would have to add to the deal.

Hartnell - Giroux - Briere
JVR - Schenn - Stewart
Read - Coots - Simmonds
Sestito -Talbot - Wellwood

I wouldn't do it straight up, and I wouldn't add to Voracek.
