Even though Voracek has played great this year, I can't see Buff being worth less that what Philly got for Richards or Carter.

He's a top defenseman, and one of the best offensive D men in the league.

Jets could also like Simmonds but like Couturier and Schenn I don't see the Flyers budging on him either.
Can't see the appeal for Winnipeg to go from Buff to Coburn (who's good, just not Buff), and get 1 year to UFA Read as the difference.

Would have to think the Jets would be targeting guys like the Schenns, Voracek, Simmonds, 1st round picks, and Coburn (unless the Flyers want to add Buff to Coburn) etc.
