Of all the goalies mentioned, I think the only one (and it's by a long shot) we'd have a chance of getting would be Giggy. The ducks are drowning (pun intended), and I'm not sure what his contract is, but it might be someone they'd think about trading at the deadline with the CBA coming up. On the other hand, who knows if he's really as good as he was, or if it was a fluke... it would be a gamble, and I'm not really sure I want another gamble. I'd love to see a legit goalie on the team.
As for right now, guys I wouldn't mind seeing moved.
Gagne -- His shooting % is weak, so he's not a finished, he is injury prone, he doesn't hit. Why everyone goes ballistic at the idea of trading him is beyond me, I say ship him.
Handzus -- Another big slow centerman... and he's not winning face offs this year, so what is his purpose?
Brashear -- I used to love the guy, and used to defend him. All he does any more is take stupid penalties, he doesn't drop the gloves, which means he's turning into a big, slow, no talent p***y.
Desjardins -- I've wanted him off the team for the last 4 or 5 years. I personally think he sucks, and he's a liability come playoff time. He's getting older and older, and not any better.
Therien -- Lug. I don't want to say any more.
Hackett & Esche -- Equally so. Neither are #1s, and as much as Bob Clarke wants to use retard math of #2 goalie + #2 goalie = #1, they both can't cut it. Esche will never win a cup (unless he's a backup on a really good team) and it's fact. I know hack hack choke choke can't be traded, but still, I can dream can't I?
I think the Flyers are a cursed hockey franchise, which is why I stick to my conspiracy theory that the only reason the flyers won back to back cups was because bob clarke sold his soul for them. This team only has like 2 players that are the same as 5-6 years ago, yet they still win a ton of games in a row, then can't beat anyone. Different team, different coach, different system... same old Flyers.
