Flyers: Sellers or Buyers

Let's face it: even if the Flyers added a good defenseman their defense and goaltending are so suspect that they will not go far in the playoffs this season.

I would much rather the Flyers not attempt to add a defenseman and instead rebuild their defense. I would trade alot of very good players to get defensive prospects and draft picks to upgrade our defense. More specifically, I would trade Jagr, Timmo, Carle and Coburn. Jagr and Timmo are great but they are not part of the long term plan for this team. Carle is a decent offensive defenseman, but is defensively limited. Coburn is overrated. I think we could get a good return for all these players.

I think even if we trade these players we are in the playoffs competing. But I would rather do a mini-rebuild of our defense than keep on watching this crap. It is to frustrating to watch this team give up goals as soon as they score. It is too frustrating to watch the d-men on the pk. It is too frustrating to watch this score 8 goals to have the other team score 9. Our defense sucks. Let's face reality and be sellers, not buyers, come the trade deadline.

If they are smart they make the most of the trade deadline and sell.

I really think they have to consider selling briere, carla, and maybe mezaros. Bourdon is mezaros light and we could replace carle in the offseason.

Briere has a NMC, Timonen has a NTC

Plus ether way the Flyers don't believe in selling or rebuilding and given what happened when they overloaded on youth they have made an effort to keep veterans around.

Flyers have traditionally sucked in February going all the way back to the Lindros years. This team won 7 straight in December with pretty much the same defense. Add a shot blocking dmen like Gill and a penalty killing forward who actually lays out to block shots too, and they will be at least competitive in the playoffs. That's about all you can ask for.

He has some offense. I really want to see him work on his game from the QMJHL. If he can add offense to his fiestiness he could be a solid Flyer for a while yet.

I'd say both, but we'd probably get rid of bigger pieces than bring in.

How many of these threads do we need?

If we make any moves at all, it will be as buyers. There's absolutely no reason to give up on this season just because we're slumping at the moment.

Get in 6th place, finish off Florida and see what happens next. Sounds like a plan to me... No, but seriously, we're not going to give up on a season when we're in a playoff position. Teams don't do that. Especially not the Flyers.

I would love to sell. Not because I am panicking but because I am willing to wait a year and do it right this time. imo we are much more talented than we were in 2007. If we wait one more year and sell we will position our self to have great years.

43 is the next prime number after 41 (counting from 2), maybe that makes it 41 light? Too bad that it's 42 that is the answer. I want David Backes on this team, is what I'm saying.

I think Mez has patchy facial hair. Bourdon on the other hand, can grow a solid beard

I wouldn't buy, let the year run out but have a plan in place for next season. There's no reason to do something crazy again.

The only reason I say something for Carle is to at least get something for him.
