Big trade, I'll let Modo comment more because I'm off to class. But we're thrilled to bring in Brayden Schenn to the organization. Having seen the spark that our young players (Kassian/Schroeder/Tanev) bring to the team, we felt Schenn was a great fit. He'll compete for time on the 2nd line LW with Kesler and Burrows/Booth, or center the 3rd line with Higgins and Raymond.

Roberto has been an amazing teammate and player for this team and will always be remembered. We wish him the best of luck in Philly.

Now, our attention turns to acquiring a 2nd line two-way forward. Malhotra, Raymond, Booth, Ballard are all available + picks/prospects to make this upgrade.

Roman Cechmanek, Brian Boucher, Michael Leighton, Antero Niittymaki, Ilya Byzgalov.

A steady parade of goalies who got never could get the job done in goal for the Flyers.

Enter Roberto Luongo.

"Oh ha ha, Modo, he's never won either."

But he will. Oh yes, he will.

Luongo FINALLY solves Philly's goalie problem, and is signed to what we believe is a manageable contract. He'll be our go-to guy from now on, and while it's unfortunate to give up a prime piece like Brayden, this is a move our organization had to make.

Good deal.

RIP octopi and parabola.
