I like this. Pither is worthless, and we turned him into an upgrade for our 3rd/emergency goalie(who can come up whenever thanks to no re-entry waivers), and a prospect that has much better upside than Pither.

Wait, who exactly disagreed with the move? I won't go through all the pages now, but I can't remember people saying it was a bad trade. And now you guys have filled up a page laughing at something no one has said. Good job, it's cool seeing people getting amused so quickly. It also says something about the general level of conversation and intelligence displayed on these boards.

if boosh goes to the phantoms does monroe go to the echl? could boosh be a very expensive hands on coach for goalies?

let small market teams call it what they want (day 1 cap subversion) i see it as a deeper committment to development.

Munroe has no future in the organization. The Flyers are still trying to pull something out of Hovinen, so he'll take priority over Munroe, and the Devils have Wedgewood in Trenton as well, who'll also take priority regardless of affiliation.

I think one page back hockyplyr8 said "i hate this team". That (I'm guessing) is where it all began.

People are bent that leighton is here, bryz is here, and that boucher was "the solution".

It was actually a very smart trade (for today) by Holmgren. Neither guy may play for the Flyers (bouch again, Alt ever), but we need all the D prospects we can get.

I wonder if this will get to 8000000 pages like the "we gauged interest in Nodl" thread last year...for a complete non issue.

I've been watching Alt for about 5 years and I can tell you the Flyers got the better of this deal. I've never even heard of Pither but Alt is a kid who has everything you need to be a successful defenseman at the NHL level. His skating could use a little work but he's a big kid and a great athlete. As a few have mentioned, he has been off this year but I think a change of scenery next year could really motivate him and get him going again.

Mark Alt is an interesting addition. Pither was no one that would really ever even play an Andreas Nodl role on the team. So it's fine. Boucher could be here for Leighton's role last year or to compete with Leighton for the back up job. Why not trade for Martin Biron while we're at it.

I think Steve Dueschene and Mikael Renberg are looking to make a comeback as well...

Alt is a decent prospect with upside. Exactly the type of guy homer should be looking to aqcuire. The price is low but playing the numbers one is bound to pan out

You would think that with the work that needs to be done, he would absolutely go back. Obviously I dont know if he does

from the looks of it, it seems like Alt should move on from college. He's stuggled this year, but it could be one of those "it's time to move one" things, much like Bourdon last season. He wasn't that great in the AHL, but finally got called-up and showed he can play in the bigs

that may be true but i have a feeling he goes back for his senior year.

Totally agree on that. I like the move just for that perspective alone. Any deal where we take on a minor amount and gain youth on the back end would be especially grateful! Thank you Rutherford.

You won't go through the pages to see if we are right but instead will accuse us of being unintelligent.
