They better not trade JVR. He has been great since about the 15 game mark this season... I think Lavi recently said he has been their best forward recently. To give up on him after a year and a half is crazy. Let him and Giroux hit their prime along with Richie and Carter. Try to hang onto Briere-Harts-Leino for a few more years and they are set on forward.

It would be such a bad idea to trade JVR now

I kinda view Carle as the most expendable guy on the roster, then you read an article like the one on Philly.com today where they are saying he is a #1 on half the teams (?!?!), his team mates think he worthy of the all star game, he brings great consistency, etc... wonder if they are talking about the same guy.

I just don't see a blue chipper being expendable without subtracting too much from the current team. Why shake up a 1st place team with a major move? I prefer the the minor change route (Langenbrunner would have been a perfect move).

Relax, the Flyers aren't trading JVR or Bobrovsky.

Not only are they there youth, they need there cheap salaries.

May be just cleared to play after much time out... or may even be a mistake... point being is that he has been out for an extended period -- one in which those dressed have played well -- scratching him is not a sign of anything, IMO, giving the total circumstances of the situation... Again, I believe you are grasping at straws.

What is it with all the Carle hate? The guy plays sound position hockey with great stick work. He just needs to be more physical around the net, something to about how Kimmo plays around the net. If we trade a D it would probably be Coburn. Coburn has all the talent in the world but gets caught out of position too often. Either way I don't want any D on the Flyers to be traded.

I wouldn't be against trading Nodl or Zherdev and a prospect for a top notch pk guy that can play in the top 9. Nodl has been playing good but man does he need to learn how to bury some of those chances. And Zherdev needs to play more consistent.

This just in: Flyers trade JvR and Bobrovsky for the Stanley Cup. Playoffs are cancelled.

I'm not a Carle hater... my post came off a bit harsh. I actually think he does not get enough credit for some of his plays (for example, setting up Gagne and Giroux's OT winners in the play-offs last year). I would also prefer they not move anyone significant from the roster. I could possibly see him coming in to play in the off-season though just due to Pronger, Timo, Mez all having longer deals and Coburn being a bit cheaper. To sign Leino they may have to go cheaper on D, depending on cap room. I also hope they keep Zherdev and Nodl this year. Some minor tinkering to add some depth on the wing would be fine with me.

He offered a 2nd, too, but couldn't land a dynasty.

Really, the only "top prospect" I think we have is Nodl. A year ago at this time I was ferociously calling for him to be impaled on the Market Street Bridge as a warning to others. Now, I'd actually regret seeing him traded. He has looked very fast recently, and hasn't been playing badly

I'd rather have a bad-decent prospect than a bad-decent rumor monger.

Can anyone honestly not be impressed with what he is bringing at a 2mil cap hit and ice time similar to that of biznasty?

If Nodl is a prospect, JVR is too and I would consider JVR the "top prospect" for the Flyers. Nodl is a career 3rd/4th line on most teams. Yeah he's playing with Richards now, but that is not by choice is my guess. Nothing against Nodl, he's a solid "grinder" type player, but he is not the "top prospect" in the Flyers system. JVR has the potential (though I don't see him panning out this way) to be a top line type player.

There is a reason Zherdev is being scratched all the time. But for 2 mil and with his scoring ability you can't complain much. I just would like a top pk guy that can get in front of the net and bang bodies on even strength. I know once the playoffs start and Shelley will be scratch our top 4 lines will be fun to watch that is for sure

Are you serious? I doubt Lavy would play Shelley in the playoffs. Shelley plays now to keep other teams honest (which has worked this season), but once the playoffs start he should be scratched.

Shelley is defensively responsible, especially when compared to Zherdev. That's why he plays over either Zherdev or Carcillo.
