Flyers wouldn't have to include a big contract in the trade to clear cap space, but money would be moving the other way because it is going to take a significant package to get Buff.
Haha fair enough.

What kind of pricetag do Jets fans put on him? You guys would want a quality d-man back, no?
Jets probably are looking for a scoring forward. Not sure whether they'd prefer a winger or center but center is more likely IMO. However, I'm not so sure Byfuglien would get them Couturier or Schenn. Certainly not Giroux. I could see something around Coburn + Read for sure, maybe Voracek, although Flyers fans won't like it. Jets could also like Simmonds but like Couturier and Schenn I don't see the Flyers budging on him either.
