Voracek/Read or both to SJ

Would anything like this work?

Jason Demers+Ryane Clowe+2nd to Philadelphia for Jakub Voracek and Matthew Read?

It can be Demers or Braun depending on which is preferred, but I think Demers fits the puck moving style more that Philly seems to be looking for.

Thoughts?

I doubt we'd get both those forwards. That'd leave the Flyers short of top 9 wingers, I think.

That for Voracek may do it but Flyers fans would have to say.

I'd do Braun or Demers for Read, I think

I'd say no on that. We just extended Voracek and Clowe is expiring this offseason.

I would never go with Braun or Demers for Read. I think Demers is quite good, but no thanks. We need Read more than we need any of those guys. The original proposal also wouldn't fare too well in my book.

We're very weak on the wings, even when healthy. We need a PMD as well, but we'd be in the market for one that can play on the 1st pairing on our team and be a difference maker.

Trading Voracek or read is unlikely, not to mention both of them at once. Neither one is bound to bring us the player we need on the backend, and we'd end up being even weaker on the wing...

No. Demers doesn't project high enough. there is little reward from the flyers POV.

Matt Read= Flyers current point leader and tied with G with 3 goals.
Why do people always make him the first to be shipped off??
You can have Clowe.

If Voracek doesn't pick it up I would totally trade him for Clowe. Our wingers would be beastly. Clowe, Hartnell, Simmonds, Schenn. Those are some extremely physical forwards in the top 6.

i think they might actually. JV might be just what they need on the 2nd line, a playmaker for Couture.

As a Flyers fan, I wouldn't. Don't trade a 25 year old for a 30 year old when we are still building. Now if we can add Clowe in the offseason for free...hell yeah! And then we could trade Jake if we wanted. Like in a package with a D-Man for a better D-man.

Matt Read is one of the best goalscorers in the league per $. God knows why people think we'd trade him.

Yeah, well, that's cool, maybe they can wrestle the opposing teams for a win then

it would be a multi player deal from either side. didnt suggest a one for one swap.
or didnt mean to imply it I should say.

Exactly! And why in the Hell would you trade talented youth away such as Read and Voracek for a 30+ yr old Clowe?

Read needs to stay with this club (especially right now).

Agreed, lets trade forwards away when 2 of our top forwards are injured...that makes sense.
When is Simmonds expected back?

Depends what you get back. Your contract doesn't change the day you're traded. His /$ value is just as high to other teams near the cap as it is to us.

Anthony SanFilippo ‏@AnthonySan37

I've just been told that Wayne Simmonds is doubtful for tonight for the #Flyers #NHL
He skated yesterday morning in a non contact jersey iirc

Why does SJS do this?

We can't really afford it, but burns would be nice.

They don't! I cannot imagine Burns going anywhere... but would love him to be a Flyer. Guy is awesome as a player and a classy guy as well.
