That's the thing...we needed D and it seemed JVR was the only tradeable asset we were willing to part with. Everybody was holding out for Schenn and Couts...hopefully they still stick around although I'm certain Couts will now probably Braydon as well now that Luke is on the team. Guess the last bro combination we had was Rich and Ron Sutter.......
Great trade for the Flyers. I know many will disagree but I am sure the tune will change with a year or so. He'll be a stud for the Flyers on the backend, and could grow into a top pairing Dman like projected.
Man, Flyers keep on getting scarier and scarier each year...
P.S. I am an Av fan who lived in Toronto for 4 years. Don't let my avy fool you into thinking I am a leaf fan lol.
But for what? It'd be sick to acquire Luke only to turn and trade Brayden.. Maybe voracek and a 1st and 2nd?
That's wayyyyy too much. Voracek is younger, and is already a 50 point player. Ryan is only a 60-65 point player, then to throw in two top picks? Nah. Ducks just need to bring their ****ing price down. Ryan has already backed them into a corner, and now they're swinging at other GMs with sticks trying to get a silly return that'll probably never come.
'08 drafted 5th overall, 22 years old, 310 career games. Physical right-handed defensemen who will obviously love being here and playing with his brother. Expect the Schenn brothers to do really, really well here.
JVR was expendable. Now we only have 2 forwards who make over $4mil.
