Don't be so foolish. We can't possibly afford the Leafs monetarily. However, Carter has sufficient value to net us such a return thanks to his intangibles.

It's not out of spite or hatred or anything like that...

I'd just like the opportunity to draft Original6Leafs in the dispersal draft.

I mean think of all the bad-decent proposals we'd then have at the Flyers' disposal?
No, we can't. I'm terrified of Kansas City and don't trust sending the Flyers to play there. It's an old superstition of mine.

I believe it is in our best interest to use the profits from Toronto to instead buy Kansas City, and rename it Flyerstopia

When he is traded this summer for way less, you will be very disappointed...

Sadly, I think you're right.

Or, you know, maybe he isn't traded at all.

If we're playing this game can we also trade the entire Flyers team with or without Carter to Toronto so I can finally be part of the home team crowd?

It's as if every fan thinks their team is the only one that can offer us "cap space" and mediocre, cheap prospects for Carter.

There are 25 other teams who can match that folks.

Snider then re-assigns Carter to Philly, and we all carry on as usual, except we use the annual profit from Toronto to pay Carter's contract as he continues to play for our team.
Beef, you were on a roll there for a minute.

We should have a Carter to Toronto sticky.

Once you see how terrible he is, you will be very disappointed.



Yeah I'm not serious.

There is literally no reason why Holmgren should or will accept anything less than what Burke gave up for Kessel. Burke set his own market value when he traded a a potential franchise player plus other high draft picks to a division rival for someone who is not a franchise player.
