Homer chose the safe road by swapping JVR for Luke Schenn, no blockbuster multi-player trade, no huge overpayment.
Now he can wait and see if something unfolds, obviously they have put in an offer for Bobby Ryan, maybe Nash as well at some point but nothing lunatic here as well and we all know that their value is decreasing each day from now on. Get a superstar for cheap or watch another team selling the farm for a rental. It stays a win in any case.
Homer is watching this from a position of strength. Even if no further trade is happening, the Flyers are a top destination for all remaining UFA out there. Personally I like what I see/hear/read so far.
I agree but what I would say is that (hypothetically) A move for Nash, Ryan, etc isn't a rental
If Weber holds out on RFA a move for him would be amazing and he's certainly not a rental... But unless you can pull off something amazing probably leave things as they are.
