This is no knock on the Flyers assets, but I disagree. Only because STL has depth at every prospect position and good looking talent. The team floundered last season but it was the lockout and everyone seemed to slump...yadda yadda.
STL has very strong looking forward prospects. They have the ability to move a forward to cut cap and let one of the kids play, like Jaskins.
Now, I'd never say never because moves come out of no where that don't make sense to me. That said, I'd bet a lot on a trade not happening for Pietro.
Unless it hits the media that Pietro wants out of STL, it would be very hard for a GM to let a young dman like that move.
if Pietro got an offer sheet, STL would trade Stewart and others to make cap space available to match, imho.
