Bishop still hasn't been a starter for an extended period in the NHL, which is why his value isn't great. Also, goalies just arent worth as much as they should be.
Wiercioch has had a good streak, but his defensive play is inconsistent at best. He hasnt played a full season and really isnt going to get the value he commands. He is being a bit underrated at this point, but I think part of that is Sens fans insisting on Philly's best young wingers. They arent happy.
As has been pointed out, the Flyers just don't have the depth at wing to replace any of these guys (Simmonds, Voracek, Read). I would consider trading Hartnell before any of those three. If the Flyers are going to trade a forward for a PMD type guy, I think it much more likely that they would trade a center than a winger.
