Simmer isn't a 3rd liner, hes very valuable.
Bogosian is a 22 year old top pairing defenseman who still has a lot of room to grow. He's a player that the Jets are building around and is a core piece. Yes, they have Trouba now but that's not a reason to sell short on Bogosian.
Simmonds is a 2nd liner. I love him as a Flyer, I do, but I don't think he's going to get any better than he was last year. I think he is what he is now. He holds more worth to the Flyers than to other teams. He's a good complimentary player, but not a player you build around and not a core piece.
The 1st is most likely a late first.
How does this help the Jets? They trade a young top pairing d-man and core piece for a nice complimentary player and a late first? Yup, seems like it makes a lot of sense.
