If the Flyers were to move Sean it would be for a defenseman. Plus you kind of stated why they would not want him. The Flyers have a core group of young talent they are building the team around and Sean is part of it.
There was a lot of talk about the Flyers having strong interest in Bobby Ryan last season. Sure Philly needs an impact defenseman, but I'm sure Holmgren wouldn't turn his nose up at a potential 40 goal scorer if he makes the team better.
Couturier is the big center the Maple Leafs desperately need, Kessel is a UFA in 2014.. Goodnight!
Couturier does not yet have the offence to be what we need, we need a true #1 C, and if Couturier never makes it there than we never fill the need. Not to mention are need for the C is for Kessel mostly.
you want me to trade an extremely promising 19 year old 2-way center and a 1st round pick for this?
but seriously, i wouldn't do Couturier for Kessel straight up, let alone add a 1st or voracek. if couturier is being moved at al, which is extremely unlikely in itself, it would be for a young defenseman with an equally high ceiling.
Yeah, I definitely wouldn't do that. But it's a matter of opinions, I guess.
I LOVE Voracek and Couturier.
I'd think about Kessel + Kadri probably, but I assume you wouldn't.
we have no need for kadri. we need defense. we scored the 2nd most goals in the league last year, so while i understand why you wouldn't do kessel + gardinder, the addition of gardiner is what it would take to get homer to consider moving either of Couts or Voracek, because how does it help our team otherwise? it does not. there's no point in moving 2 important pieces of your roster when you aren't even filling a need with the return.
