Player I'd want is Wayne Simmonds. He's signed for five more years at $3.975 and he plays pretty much the same game as Cally/Brown/Backes/Gallagher.
Simmonds is the kind of player to put you over the top and a playoff guy. His offensive numbers are down, so his value might be going down.
What do you think it would take to get him?
Would not want Simmonds. We have a lot of players like Simmonds already, what the Rangers really need is Kreider to play the Simmonds role, which Kreider is molding into. Simmonds I think can't create his own shot and without riding shotgun with Giroux that's why his offense is down.
Would look at Voracek or Couturier before Simmonds if looking at Flyers.
