Underperforming or underwhelming:
Hartnell, Simmonds, BSchenn, Voracek

Hartnell, Kimmo (not sure about Vinny/Streit).

Question marks (in terms of other teams' interest):
Downie, Read (I suspect he would be appealing; also someone I'd prefer on the keeper list), Coburn, Grossman, Gus, Mesz, LSchenn.

If the Flyers are looking to upgrade at any position other than in net (wow, how's that for something different?), the first thing an opposing GM will want is one of the untouchables, or Read. It's up to Homer to make it work for both sides, without gutting his team. I'm not sure that's possible without him throwing in a bunch of picks.
You have spelled out nothing.

Just because a player is underperforming other GMs won't consider acquiring them? Seriously?

If Simmonds, BSchenn, or Voracek were made available, you can bet teams would be calling Holmgren. The Habs are literally desperate for a player of Simmonds's skill set. Don't act like the market completely dries up just because a player is underperforming on an underperforming team.
