Trade with Edmonton

Read this on the Edm site. What do Philli fans think?

If the Flyers don't make the playoffs this year, I can see them making some big changes this offseason. The dressing room issue between Richards and Pronger have continued all year and do not seem like they will simmer down. Flyers acquired Pronger because they need the presences of big d-man to shut down players like Crosby, Ovechkin, Malkin and Parise. So do I see them trading away the human rake? Nope.

Looking at the forwards; the Flyers are extremely deep:

Hartnell-Richards-Giroux
Gagne-Carter-Briere
JVR

I could see Philly trading away Richards for three reasons;
1. Give them cap flexibillity.
2. Resolve dressing room issues.
3. Carter has the ability to be a 1C and Giroux a 2C.


In acquiring Pronger, Philly traded away some youth and draft picks. So I think they would be defintely interested in picks for Richards. Its rumored they will resolve their goaltending issues by trading for a young emerging goalie.

PHI- Cogliano + Svensson/Eberle (hate to give up these guy up BUT we have to many LWs) + Chorney + 1st Rounder 2011

EDM- Richards + Coburn

PHI get cheap young players for that gives them cap relief and they acquire picks.

The problem is that if there is a "locker room division", I see more players siding with Richards than Prongs. Either way, with a little teaking, a sure as hell would consider that. If the first were changed to the 2010 1st I wouldn't blink an eye before I took that deal.

Not only is the entire opening proposal based off of a massive rumour, but the proposal itself is pretty bad.

No. These rumors of lockerroom division are more because of teh way ths team ahs played, and people looking for something to blame. Richards is our captain, a great 2-way player, and a perennial 30 goal scorer. No thanks

This...the locker room divide is overblown and Richards is going nowhere, except Buffalo or New jersey for game one of the first round
