How about Kris Versteeg and the No. 8 pick. That ought to do it. Versteeg has one year left on his deal at $3.083 million but he did not perform up to expectations after being acquired on Valentine’s Day for a first and third round pick.
In this section Seravalli was saying that the Flyers were looking to move up to draft Landeskog.
Frank Seravalli also mentions Stamkos as a "possibility."

Stamkos, still just 21, is easily one of the NHL’s three best players already. He has a league-best 96 goals in the last two seasons. He was named a finalist for the Ted Lindsay Award as league MVP as voted by the players.
...
Here’s one thing I can guarantee you: Stamkos’ name has come up in the Flyers’ organizational plans. This rumor, for sure, has legs. This is something to keep an eye on.

Don't think there's really any chance of either of these things.

If you're Yzerman, what would you want from Philly for Stamkos? I'm sure, it will be too rich for anyones blood.

Neither one of those things are happening. Of course I said the same thing about trading Carter or Richards.

Like there was any ****ing chance in anyone's minds that we were going to trade Carter and Richards in the same hour.

Anything can happen.

I can easily see the Versteeg + 8th for 3rd overall deal. There were rumors it was done yesterday. We saw with the CLB rumors, that the 3rd overall deal DOES have some legs.

Yup, probably waiting to see who drops to #3 before finalizing the deal.

what the hell would we have to offer that other teams couldn't do better? i mean, we could offer schenn and the #8, but seriously... there are plenty of teams that would give up more than we have for the kid.

edit: talking about the stamkos rumor

Eh, moving up 5 spots is more feasible than Stamkos. I mean the 8th, Versteeg, and maybe a later pick is a good deal for 5 spots I think.

As for Stamkos, I mentioned this before that Anthony Gargano kind of just blurted it out there that maybe we should offer sheet him. I'm not sure if we can because I don't think we have the picks, and if we move players for the picks, and TB matches we're screwed.

Is there anyway to just trade for him? I mean we have some solid pieces.

8th overall
2nd Rounder next year
Schenn
Bob
Versteeg

I think its a pipe dream, but after yesterday I don't know what to think anymore.

I would say change Versteeg with JvR or Giroux and you might be close.

I'd dangle Bob to FLA along with Versteeg and the 8th, because there isn't much to lose there now, we know who our goalie is. It'll open up some more cap space and I don't think FLA wants to play their season with Clemmenson as their goalie (doubt Markstrom's ready). I'd be shocked if FLA did this deal for JUST the 8th and Versteeg...

That #3 pick will get us Landeskog or Larsson, both NHL ready, either will be VERY welcome additions.

If it's true that Stamkos and the Lightning are having trouble reaching an agreement it's not crazy to imagine he won't be in TB. That place is not Philly however. Teams like the Islanders, Panthers, and others with tons of cap space and need to get to the Floor could easily offer Stamkos a 1 year offer sheet worth $11M. Tampa cannot match that. Obviously that's alot to give in compensation but I could see it happening.

I think Tampa laughs at you if it's not 3/4 of Giroux JVR Schenn and the 8th. Of course that changes if for some idiotic reason Tampa is shopping him very quietly. Unless that's the case it's going to take over payment to get him, and he is a superstar. Those don't come cheap.

Tampa has 27 million in cap space, why can't they match a 1 year offer at 11M?

Lukko just laughed at the Stamkos thing on 610. He even went and said "Sure we will go after him... after I call Bettman and ask him to raise the cap to 90 million)"

I thought the Stamkos rumors were about an offer sheet.

I could see the Islanders doing it with the young talent they have already they could afford to lose a couple years of picks

I wasn't aware that they had that much space. However I'm sure they have a empty lineup and need to sign players, is that the case?. I'm currently on vacation so I don't have the capabilities or urge to really look into it.

Bull. Trade Schenn, Giroux, JVR, and the 8th pick for Stamkos and sign him to a 20-year extension with a $9.9 cap hit.

So you're saying a team would give up their 1st round picks for the next four years just to get Stamkos on a one year deal... Sounds far-fetched to me, especially because Stamkos would still not make any of those teams contenders.

Sign him to one year and then rework a contract after.
