Obviously this is hard to do but it's something worth thinking about. Homer likes his big moves.
Exactly. Assuming the Avs arent lying about wanting a forward, I cant see any of the top 4 teams being dead set on Jones. That doesnt mean they won't pick him, but I think they would be willing to trade back to 5 if Homer made a good offer. If the top 3 pass on Jones, Homer might even be able to trade up from 7.
This is obviously a long shot...and a lot of things have to go in the Flyers favor...but if they indeed can move up by dealing Coburn you have to think Jones would be on their radar.
