You can not be serious.

I think you guys are nuts if you would pass on EJ for JVR. And this is coming from a JVR fan.

EJ has actually been playing really well for the last dozen games or so, he's actually using his size and playing physical. I think the possibility is there but we probably have to add something.

Colorado traded for Erik Johnson to be their franchise defensemen, and now a year later he's going to be traded for someone people are hoping can be a consistent 50-point forward and doesn't use his body to get position?

Not that I consider Colorado that competent, but that's big red flags to me. Quincey takes more penalties, but faces tougher competition (best on the team among defensemen), and Johnson is almost 60% in offensive zone starts, and under 50% offensive zone finish. Quincey isn't that much better, but it's not a major drop off like that.

I guess I would take Johnson, because I value defensemen a lot, but it's not the slam dunk everyone thinks it is.

It seems like you're assuming a lot of things, including the idea that the Avs are even offering up Johnson. They aren't looking to deal him, at all.

The Avs, like a lot of teams I'd bet, are probably just sniffing around to see how the Flyers view JVR right now.

It's gonna be hard to keep them all under the cap (long term) and we need D too. Not that I would trade JVR, but EJ would be a nice pickup.

Well, the whole idea is based on the assumption they'd make the deal to start with. I wasn't the first guy to use his name.

He is not that good. If he wasn't the number 1 overall pick I don't think he would have this much hype around him.



I want this Guy back. I 've never seen a forward take over a game the way JVR did. He was on par with what ovechkin was doing a couple of years ago.

no no no no no no no Giguere. He's playing great this season, but he's 36 with groin issues (DTD right now with a tweak of a previously injured groin). Plus I'm sure that'd do WONDERS for Bryz's confidence, bringing in the guy he backed up for Anaheim's cup run, to replace him once again 5 years later after he's proven himself.

Some of the discussion on the trade boards on this subject is absurd.

Can we just keep JVR? Please? No more nonsense.

I remember being so pumped about this game. Couldn't believe they lost.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this or not, but did anyone say a deal with Duncan Siemens? Didn't the Flyers really like the kid and only took Couts over him because he fell so far?

I think this team needs a legit defender to build around and Siemens would be a nice addition. Thinking back on it, maybe choosing Hamilton would have been a better decision than couturier. Simply from a need stand point.

Couturier a third line center vs Hamilton a potential top pairing defenseman?

What makes you think Couts won't be above Schenn?

I think if the Flyers felt that way they would have taken Hamilton then. We have an excellent track record when dealing with forwards. I believe they know or have an idea about exactly what type of player Couturier will be. They felt like him being there was way to good to be true. Hamilton is getting a ton of hype, I want to see him play in the NHL before I think he is a next franchise dman.

Seimens, I don't know much about him, but we were I believe gonna take him before Hamilton. I remember someone saying that he was told by our management if he was there at 8 we were going to take him

I just wasted about an hour and half watching highlights of that series. I must say Richards was all over the freakin ice in that series. I didn't remember it at the time but after watching highlights he was doing everything for us. The bruins were so physical that series we did not have the personnel to match. Mcquaid and boychuk were killing us all series.

I think everyone that ever accused Mike Richards of dogging it out there needs to go rewatch some of his playoff series.

Yeah siemens was going to go ahead of Hamilton if couturier wasn't their. But ill be honest I don't know how it's going to play out. Giroux schenn and Couturier. Read can play center as well. I think one of them is going to be sent for a defenseman unless they think someone can convert to wing which in that case i think Giroux would be a prime candidate for that.

Forgot how enjoyable playoff hockey is.

Forgot how unreal Tim Thomas was in that series, especially that game.

For someone who's touted as "playoff clutch", no one seems to remember Briere's wiff with about 3 seconds left in the 3rd.

I really really hope that JvR comes back at least for the playoffs, but permanently would be okay too.
