Listen... ridicule me all you want.

I'm not going to argue with you. I don't expect you to believe that my source is a good one... but it is. I cannot tell you who my source is but

Carter will be traded. Most likely West.

I wish I could prove it to you and stop you in your tracks and say.. hmm that's a pretty good source.. but I can't.

If I'm wrong then I'll leave this board and let you guys just make fun of people behind your computer screen.

The Flyers however in this case have no reason to trade for the rights of Chris Mason, let alone a player like Hartnell who has performed very well in the playoffs.

While I agree that the blanket statement you responded to was dumb, it is something that should be judged on a case by case basis, and in this case it makes no sense.

Wrong Mason!!!

That said I think Turco would be the best option for the Flyers. 1) Phiily's D is 10x better then Dallas'
2) I think he feels like he has a lot to prove and would probably sign with a cup contender for below market value. 3) Turco's last half of the season was pretty darn good
This!!

I understand if your source is legit that you can not reveal it. I just want something better then Carter to the West. Maybe Carter to LA for Schenn and Brown (not a real rumor guys, don't jump on me). Then I would be more likely to believe you.

That's Eklund-esque.

To add to this, the Nashville trade was for 2 skaters who would of drawn a good amount of interest in the league. I didn't really like the trade at the time, but Timonen has made the trade worth it and then some. Hartnell isn't as worthless as people on this site like to believe, and Holmgren even said he had 10+ teams contacted him about Hartnell at the deadline.

Mason is a completely different animal. First off he is a UFA goalie in a weak goalie market...nothing like Timonen and Hartnell. Second he is up there in age, you don't give up a 28 year old skater for negotiation rights to a 34 year old goaltender.

Chris Mason was on the Olympic stand-by list for Team Canada.

In any case, I think he'd be a good fit for the Flyers. There's no way he's going to be getting the 3.75/per year he was seeking from the Blues now that there's only a few teams searching for a starting goaltender. I think he and his agent didn't think the Blues had the stones to go out and acquire a #1 goaltender and got burned in the process.

You know, I've been hearing a bit about Brown from the Philly media as well. Nothing that can be put down and qualified as a rumor, but definitely a lot of chatter about LA.

Just for future reference, people saying they have secret sources with no proof generally doesn't float well around here. It's probably best kept to yourself. This is the internet after all, where everyone seems to be all knowing and special, i'm sure you understand.

Also, Chris Mason at almost 4mil is a bit too much in my opinion. I would say he's closer to 2.75.

I wonder if the OP is really a hockey fan at all. Hartnell has a NMC. He's not going anywhere.

I understand that. I do have proof. I just can't tell you... sounds bad but if what I say comes true.. I guess that's a good sign that I'm not blowing smoke up your as*?

Actually, at the time Steve Mason had a .800sv% and was playing like crap. There was an article back at the Olympics and he was on their injury back-up list.

How highly are teams valuing Carter? Would it be Brown+a goalie?

Brown + Quick/Bernier

for

Carter + Parent

Sounds about right in terms of value. Would LA do it? Who knows?

Who are LA's current centers ?
Kopitar, Zeus ???? Schenn is a center too correct ?

A 1-2 of Kopitar/Carter would be INSANE , but does moving a winger for Center make sense for them ??

I think they are short on wingers especially with Frolov potentially bouncing so it might be hard to sell Carter to LA for winger.

But I find it interesting that John Stevens might join the bench there.

Didn't he have a good relationship with Carter?

EDIT: Benny, LA fans say dream on with this Brown talk. Rightfully so. But we'll see if Homer and Lombardi make a deal.

Also, LA is leading for Kovalchuk with numerous media outlets. Kopitar,Carter,Kovalchuk is a nice core.

It wouldn't surprise me if Stoll comes back the other way. The Kings are trying to move a C. And Bernier won't be involved, I would guess.

Brown, Quick, Stoll

For

Carter, Hartnell

I dunno, just a guess.
