Not sold on Mike Green at all. He hasn't been able to stay healthy a full season and his production has gone down drastically since that one season he scored 30 goals.
Hopefully Holmgren sits patiently and doesn't do anything stupid. There's no need to deal any of the Flyers own first round picks and there's no need to deal anyone with the last name Giroux, Voracek, Simmonds, Schenn, Couturier, Grossmann and Rinaldo. Everyone else should be on the table.
If Holmgren decides to go after a defenseman, his best bet is to wait until the off season. Right now, everyone is going to know that he's desperate for a defenseman and they're going to squeeze him for everything he has. He waits until the off season, that desperation isn't there. As well, he might have multiple first round picks to play with. With the cap coming down, those draft picks are going to be like gold to most GMs (especially to those GMs who are having cap space issues) and you can bet that Holmgren will get several calls about possibly giving up one of those picks for a viable defenseman worthy of a first. This is the time to sit tight, clear out salary and prepare for the off season rebuild.
