The JVR/Schenn trade was two young former highly drafted players who were struggling and needed a change of scenery on teams that had a surplus at their positions.
Anaheim could get far better of a return than Coburn + Read and whatever else spare parts you want to include in there. The 11th pick would be the only really enticing thing the Flyers have if Schenn and Couturier are off the table. Anaheim doesn't really have to trade Ryan right now too so it's not like there's a real leverage on our side.
That's why I rather just pass on Ryan but Homer's an idiot will probably go down that road and come out on the bad end of it just so he could finally have a hometown kid in a Flyers uniform.
Do people not realize that Coburn was actually really good before this season?
He's a real partner for Fowler as well. He could help out the Anaheim defense immensely, kill PKs, and log heavy minutes.
He's a #2-3 defenseman.
Ryan is a top line 50-65 point winger.
They're pretty much the same tier talent-wise.
