Greenberg: Flyers can't keep trading draft picks

The "expert" finding religion...but hindsight is 20/20 Paul! Yes not ideal to keep trading away your future or to have one of the worst if not the worst farm teams. To me more indication we will probably give up some of our higher priced players for some picks....


Quote:
“[A second-rounder] is another stab at a prospect, the fact that we don’t have any second-round picks is not an ideal position,” said Holmgren. “We haven’t had one in a while, so we are looking around at things right now.”
Quote:
Free agency has become a larger element in team building since the advent of the cap, no question. But the reason the Flyers can shop for a missing piece like Bryzgalov is that they only have to pay James van Riemsdyk $875,000 this season. That price will rise, corresponding to his restricted free agency eligibility for 2012-13 and his status as an emergent star. So, with long-term commitments in place with Richards, Jeff Carter, Pronger and probably Bryzgalov, a supply of cheap rising talent has become almost as important as finding talent, period.

Quote:
The higher picks, we can’t keep giving them up,” said Holmgren. And the history of the organization, as it will with most organizations, demonstrates the importance of the draft clearly.

Quote:
Each spike in draft success the Flyers have had has been followed by their most sustained runs at Stanley Cups. Two years after their best-ever draft – Hall of Famer Bill Barber in the first round, all star Jimmy Watson in the third round, top-four defenseman Tom Bladon in the second in 1972 – the Flyers won their first Stanley Cup. And their fourth-rounder in that draft, a 12-year pro of 240 NHL goals named Al MacAdam, was the bait in the trade for Reggie Leach, a key to Cup II.

Right now, with the team this close, is not to the time to be rebuilding the farm system using NHL talent.

We don't need to trade players to rebuild. We still have a young core. We just need to hold on to our picks from here on out.

There is a way to win the cup while not depleting your farm system..... Thats what most teams do.

I'm not sure how close they are.....quantify it? Can they win a cup in two years? Holmgren may be looking at the Meltzer argument of maybe snagging an NHL ready prospect like a Landeskog and maybe some that can be ready in a couple of years at the least so that you can extend your window. More ways than one to slice it...I wouldn't term it to the extreme of rebuilding but of restructuring the framework. Not an easy task though....hence why Holmgren finds himself at a critical junction of his GM career where he needs to balance winning now with ensuring some kind of competitive future for the Flyers within the constraints of the cap...

you can have a top end prospect pool and still be consitered a strong playoff team. Just take a look at Pittsburgh and Washington.
The Rangers have a strong group as well. Our prospect pool is a joke. It is possible to build up the prospect pool yet stay in the Cup contender ranks.

Yes, but once it's spilled all over the floor it's tough to get it back in the bottle without detrimental effect. Rebuilding is the same thing as buying stocks. Some will work out... some will not.

They're pretty close, IMO. They were one of the best teams in the NHL this year, they just had injury problems and lost their mojo a bit down the stretch.

This is one of the stupidest statements I have ever heard. It's like a politician who increases spending and says we need to decrease spending. Holmgren is the idiot that keeps trading away the picks like they are worthless, and yet says we need to stop trading away picks.

Randy Jones was actually in Blades of Steel. The NES game where the player losing the fight gets penalized. THAT player is Randy Jones.
