Is Ryan Parent available?

I absolutely love this kid.

I'm a Leafs fan, is Philly interested in moving him? What would the price be?

This is just out of interest really, so please don't go jump all over me here.

I'm gonna say no. He's a steady top 6 defenseman who is under $1M through next season. That's something we desperately need, without considering he's our 2nd best defensive prospect and will turn into a hell of a shutdown d-man.

Simple answer, no.

He makes so little, and probably won't ever make much, because he won't put up good offensive numbers. That is absolutely key to our cap, since we will most likely be hugging the cap year in and out. He's our best defender right now behind Kimmo, and we really can't afford to loose someone like him.

He is cheap- which is what we need right now. We can not take back any slary

I think we will keep him

Highly unlikely he will be traded, would have to be an overpayment or might be included in a deal for an elite player.

I wouldn't trade him straight up for Schenn. They are very, very similar players, with Parent having a slight edge at this point, but Schenn counting almost $3 million against the cap.

I think he's going to be a stud as well but if you're waiting for a mean streak I think you might be waiting a long time. It's not his game and he's said as much. He's much more happy with a consistent poke check as opposed to a bone jarring hit which is subject to more risk.

As to the original question, unless you can snag an absolute top player like a JayBo it would be very hard to deal him.

Whats going to be unreal is when Sbisa puts on a few pounds. People laugh but that kid can lay out hits, and doesn't get caught out often

Your damn right, I remember some pretty nice hits this year from him...and he was only 18 freaking years old. When he is 25 he is going to be really good. Didn't Richards say Sbisa would be our best player someday or something like that?

Not sure, but i remember in juniors he could lay a solid hit. Didn't he knock schenn on his ass then just hand him a beating aswell.

Then he put that hit in for the flyers that got hit of the week. He's a smart hockey player. Wish we still had him here with the club.

Yea he destroyed Brayden Schenn in juniors. I remember seeing that video draft day and I got real excited about him.

What's going to be more unreal is going to be a pairing of him and Parent together in a few years. Boner.
