They are also lacking a scoring winger with a shoot first approach and a solid backup goalie.
So all they need is a faceoff guy and a backup goalie and a #1. That is wishful thinking? That is really only one super significant hole. Sure, I know the other two are important, but every team has holes. I don't mention the winger because that's silly and to get one is usually too costly. There are enough wingers that can score and will score more as they grow on this team. You don't need a sniper, per se.

Also: Matt Read.

The core is far too young to rebuild. If they can get any return for Briere they should do it, just to get Couturior on a better line, Otherwise, there is no sense in rebuilding or selling. Some of our D need to do a better job of moving the puck through the Blue line. But that doesn't solve all the giveaways this team makes either. Holm knows he needs to find some mobility on the D side, they dont need to be great, just better than what the Flyers have now.

Anyone think Briere to the Pens for one of their D prospects would work?

I personally promise that if this happened Briere would score 30 goals in any Flyers / Penguins playoff series.

For 4.5 million i cant find too many guys that can do what coburn does. If you look at him in the true sense of being a nubmer 1 he isnt. But he is still a valuable player.


Getting rid of him would be silly.
Thank you. Coburn stays no matter what. I think he's a reliable top 2 dman on most teams, top 3 on the rest. Huge, fast and has character and experience. Yeah, let's trade THAT.... The mind boggles.

Maybe, but the Pens are desperate for wing help even before Malkin got injured. Could tell Briere to accept the trade or be bought out.

Since it's the Penguins I'd want Pouliot + 1st.

Briere would never get traded to the Penguins. We would accept less in return for him before we increase the Pens chances at a cup. Come on people...

And they would say no. Briere only has a year or two of good hockey left. Playing with an offense first, finesse team like Pittsburgh could give him life. Who cares how good Briere plays once he is traded. The Flyers have more important issues.

Pouliot over Morrow? Morrow is basically ready.

Pouliot is a cut above in my opinion.

That said, we need to start stockpiling these defensive draft picks like Pittsburgh ASAP.
