The Jets are going to be asking for Schenn or Couturier for Kane. Even to deal Simmonds for him would be a waste. He is an extremely fast player but that's it. There is a eason the Jets want rid of him, and that's why no one is going to pony up an exhorbitant price.
The Flyers' only real need is to replace Timonen in the top 4 next year (even if he comes back at a reduced price, in which case he would be a perfect partner for Luke in the 3rd pairing!). We have lots of NHL forward depth, and some good prospects like McGinn, Laughton, Leier, Cousins.
It will probably cost a roster forward and a kid, since the UFA market is slim pickings, but there is no need to send a bunch of assets for a guy to play with G and JV who doesn't have the well-rounded game Raffl has. Raffl is fast, big, hits and smart. Kane will be many things, but never smart.
