I don't think these trade proposals are that out of the ordinary "value" wise...However I wouldn't pay that for Forsberg....The thing is another team (in better playoff postion) is going too..
Every time I find myself agreeing with you--and it's happened alot this season--it still unsettles me?
Value-wise, I don't see Philly getting the moon for Forsberg unless it's to a contender who can sacrifice the youth for a Cup (Detroit comes to mind). I just don't see a team like the Rangers, who may be looking for an extra push just to get them into the post-season, emptying their pockets for this guy. As usual with fan proposals, only one side of the trade table is examined. How does a 35 year old player, who is constantly injured, help this team. I know it's Peter-effin'-Forsberg, but acquiring him at the cost suggested by a Flyers fan, isn't really constructive. We're trying to build a solid foundation, not a house of cards. With Forberg you'll have an electrifying player for oh....15 games (give or take) and then we can watch him re-sign with Philly the following year alongside Monty, Cally, possibly Sanguinetti. Not thanks. The only thing I'd be happy giving Philly is Jessimen OR Falardeau and possibly a 2nd rounder. Whether or not that's realistic, doesn't matter.
