Only way Philly gets ahold of 5th overall. Don't like it? Tough
It is always hard to take posters seriously when they do things like this, but...

In abstract terms, the value is probably reasonably close; in practice, it is a pretty bad deal for the Flyers.

JVR = Schenn + 2nd,but Couturier has already played a full NHL season at 18, and it is far from clear that Forsberg or Grigorenko or whoever drops to 5 will be as good as he is and will be in the future. THe Flyers take all the risk for a short-term downgrade with no real future reward.
