Yeah, I mean Voracek's value wasn't as high last year--but still, that's a crazy ask.

Assuming that only Jake and Giroux are untouchable at this point (and I think Voracek basically is), I think any package for Weber starts with ether:

B. Schenn + L. Schenn +


Couturier + 2013 1st +

Couturier + Coburn or Coburn + 2013 1st doesn't get it done, in my opinion, unless we're tacking additional significant assets on.

He's more likely to know the intricacies of the Flyers-Predators discussions than Dreger--right? I've never been impressed with Dreger's sources when it comes to the Flyers.

If Couturier and Schenn had been the two major pieces, I think the Flyers would have swapped one out and found a way to make a deal. Nashville's ask had to be insane in order for the Flyers to pass after getting Weber to sign the O.S. The above package makes sense, in that regard.
