The Flyers traded Jeff Carter and Mike Richards, two bonafide top-six centres for Schenn, Simmonds and Couturier two years ago. They traded the better, yet more expensive players for two up and comers and an elite role player.
Noting that, I'd be weary of Schenn and Couturier if Holmgren is willing to pull the plug on that experiment that early. Simmonds would be a dream, but I doubt he'd ever consider waiving to come here. The other two wouldn't tide the disappointment of losing Yakupov.
And if Hemsky's going anywhere, he's going in a deal as the value peace, not a throw-in to match salaries.
