For Carlson, the deal being discussed was Carlson and Neuvirth for Couturier and the Flyers 1st. From what I heard from the scouts, the Flyers want Kuznetsov instead of Neuvirth and they want a draft pick as well from Washington (Washington's 2nd round at a minimum).
The Buffalo deal was Tyler Myers, Ville Leino (even though he's hurt), Buffalo's 2nd for Couturier, Meszaros and Philadelphia's first.
Once again, those were the deals that I heard from the scouts. The scouts seem to think that it isn't Holmgren who is putting together those packages and that Holmgren has no interest in acquiring long term contracts (re: Leino) and that if he's giving up his first, he wants at the very least a high 2nd back.
These deals are all pretty bad, especially the Phoenix deal. 2 NHL regulars, a top prospect, the top 2 picks for two guys who havent even established themselves as NHL players yet and a later first. Couturier alone has more value than Gormley or Rundblad; he is younger, has played in the NHL, and is at a more premium position.
