More than the Flyers (or any team) would be willing to give up. He's been our best and most consistent d-man this year, and moving him creates a huge hole unless a top 4 is coming back, which I don't see happening. Not to mention our defence is already shaky.
We need to get NHL d-men, not move them. Smid has been playing great. No need to ship him out, unless you want to move couturier and a 2nd. I don't know why you would, it's just basically we need a massive overpayment to justify it.
I'm not even saying he's worth that on the open market, it's just this team needs d-men. Think about it - our second best guy is probably Gilbert. And third is idk, petry? Whitney has been non-existent till the past month because of injuries.
Not true. Makes us an offer on Barker, Peckham, Potter, Sutton, or Whitney.....I dare you
I don't want any of them. Hell, Barker is just no... just no. Potter and Sutton have re-signed. Whitney has done well I think for your team, but he's not someone the Flyers need. Peckham... I always considered him a forward that plays D.
Would take a huge overpayment. No thanks to Schenn. I can't imagine a deal involving Smid going anywhere that makes sense for two teams. Edmonton needs an equally competent defenseman coming back their way. I don't see the point.
