Kubina has a really solid shot from the point for the PP, and he's a big guy (actually strong on his stick), so he might be really helpful for around the net area, checking forwards and clearing the crease. Plus, he has a few Czechs here to make him feel more comfortable.
My only worry is that if the Flyers were one of the teams he was willing to get traded to, Holmgren would do something awfully stupid and trade a 1st to get him. He's worth a 2nd, and a mid-tier prospect, at the very most.

You can say that for every team. It's just connecting the dots. We need a defenseman, probably a rental. Kubina is both of those. Fans of every team that need a d-man are saying the same thing right now.

huh?

You said he wouldn't go west because of the travel. I said it would only be for a few months because he's a UFA at the end of the year. He might not care about the travel for a few months in order to get a shot on a contender.

Scratch Philly off the list of Teams Kubina could be headed to. Add the Rangers and Senators.

Eklund is saying scratch the Flyers off destinations for Kubina. I usually don't believe him but somehow he has info on our organization.

EDIT: beaten to the punch I see!!

I don't think much of you would agree, but I would trade Simmonds for Schenn straight up. Both 22 and both have pretty good upside and fill both teams needs.

I really like Schenn too, and I think he would really play some good hockey for us with his brother on the team. Perhaps let him adjust to Philly this season, and then next season, if we re-tool the defense and playing style to fit the personnel, he could really start hitting his potential. I just don't know if I would part with Simmonds and picks for him. I think I'd rather ship JVR for Schenn+ a 2nd rounder.

Why would people trade JVR, but not Simmonds. Jvr has much more upside then Simmonds and If JVR was playing right now, I would think he would be out performin him even with his speculated injuries. Simmonds has less value then JVR and I don't even think it's quite close

It's because Simmonds is playing well. If he plays crappy tonight post this suggesting again and you'll get a different reaction.

I agree. I like Luke but he cannot get on the ice right now for the leafs. He is not a true number one. More like a good three. The boy needs to lose some baby fat in order to pick up his foot speed. I want him here because he brings what this team lacks on D. But I do not want to break the bank getting him.
