interest in PK Subban?

I thought he was over-rated last year..but this year I think he's underrated!

Now that richards is gone, what do you think?

I believe he put on extra muscle during the off-season this year. Last year he had a very good season. I agree he needs to lose the weight to get back into that form, but I think it was management asking him to put more weight on since he throws his body around so much, it just hasn't worked out well.

you gotta think that if they are looking to move him making him a healthy scratch surely wont help his value. There is not one player in our top 6 I would trade him for. Well that being a healthy top 6.

Simmer brings it. JVR is still looking for it. And I like JVR. I will let you figure out what "it" is.

Thanks for the info. He would fit in fine here. The kid is a "Flyer" playing for another team!

if the flyers dont get anyone at the trade deadline at least a defensemen, im not watching it because there's no chance, homer is an idiot.

eklund said flyers have a move planned after rick nash gets traded

1. why the hell would they need to wait for nash to get traded before acquiring a defensman?
2. is he an idiot?

News Flash:

Even if we do pick up a defenseman at the deadline, our chance of winning "it" is still small.

Well Bryan Hayes and Scott Mcarthur(spelling) on TSN 1050 Toronto are ripping Luke Schenn. One said he has the potential to be a Hal Gill and the other was saying he has no chance to become a top 2 dman on a team.

I wish I could hear what Homer is doing right about now. I want the trade deadline to pass to so I can have my life back!!!!

Could we pick up Kubina or is he too old? Big guy, physical, adds some toughness, right-handed shot, UFA next season.

I assume we'd have to wait for Nash to move so teams make a run for our forwards, who will obviously be of less value than Nash. So everyone will want Nash, then who misses out will fight for whoever we're moving. Makes sense to me.

It's funny to watch people here make ultimatums regarding getting a trade done when there is still 11 days left until the deadline.

I guess it depends who Columbus gets for Nash? Johnson from LA? Schenn from Toronto?

Howson could trade Tyutin once he knows, or flip us the newly acquired piece?

Tampa is dealing Kubina, so we'll see if the Flyers are on his list of teams.

It's terrible. They can hit the road and go watch something else.

Or it means there wasn't anything available at a fair price. If we were "one piece" away from being a favorite, sure, go all in. We aren't. I'd prefer Homer stay put if prices are sky high. We have a young team.

Name one GM who has done anything worth noting this trade deadline.


All we need is another Flyers fan on the board who overreacts, panics, and makes ridiculous declarations like "I'm not even gonna watch the playoffs, we're already done"
