I'd rather keep one of Hemsky or Yak and drop Couts.

I'd say, the way he is currently playing, Hemmer is the best player in the deal, also, yak has the best upside and the best shot, and both smid and coburn are struggling a bit so thats not a guaranteed upgrade.

I like Simmonds and Brayden Schenn....but not at the expense of both those wingers.

In all honesty I'm not sure how I feel about this deal. It has huge upside for both teams but could end up biting both teams in the ass.

Arco has 10 points which is equal to the point total of all 4 of the Flyers players (10). Not to mention his +/- is better than all 4 of theirs put together also.
