My initial thoughts.

+ I'm sure the Flyers are interested in all big, physical 2-way top 2 dmen in the league. They've been trying to replace Pronger for awhile.

Apparently Cheveldayoff was just at a recent Flyers game so it wouldn't surprise me. It makes sense for the Flyers but a bigger contract would have to go back to Winnipeg to allow the Flyers to take on Byfuglien's contract. Briere? Doubt it. He won't waive. Winnipeg would have to be getting a pretty good return too if it's for Byfuglien. He's not someone I see them wanting to trade.

Would be something else to see the man that caused the Flyers absolute fits in the SCF a few years ago play for them though. I already had to suffer through seeing Versteeg go to Philadelphia.
Hey, us Philly fans had to suffer watching Versteeg in a Flyers jersey too...

Flyers wouldn't have to include a big contract in the trade to clear cap space, but money would be moving the other way because it is going to take a significant package to get Buff.

That would great news for Pittsburgh, I hope it happens.

What kind of pricetag do Jets fans put on him? You guys would want a quality d-man back, no?

Both Schenns, Jakub Voracek, Sean Couturier, 1st picks, give us everything.

Jets probably are looking for a scoring forward. Not sure whether they'd prefer a winger or center but center is more likely IMO. However, I'm not so sure Byfuglien would get them Couturier or Schenn. Certainly not Giroux. I could see something around Coburn + Read for sure, maybe Voracek, although Flyers fans won't like it. Jets could also like Simmonds but like Couturier and Schenn I don't see the Flyers budging on him either.

Would Couturier + Meszaros + 2013 1st be overpayment or just about what the pricetag would be?

If Vorabeast is what it takes too land Buff, I do it.

I think the Jets would get Couturier or Schenns for Buff but I don't think Big Buff is moving, he means too much to this team.

Voracek for Byfuglien straight up. That was my first thought.

Byfuglien is worth way more than that.

Flyers could be looking at a pick around #10 in a "great" draft.

So a blue-chip young player, a possible high 1st round pick and a 2nd pairing dman?

No thanks.

And I don't see the jets budging on moving Buff if not one or both are involved....

Don't you think PHI will turn it around and be a deep playoff team? IMO they are way too good not to make it. I think their 1st rounder would be more of a 20-30 pick.

With the way they have played so far this year, I wouldn't bank on it.

Even though Voracek has played great this year, I can't see Buff being worth less that what Philly got for Richards or Carter.

He's a top defenseman, and one of the best offensive D men in the league.

Can't see the appeal for Winnipeg to go from Buff to Coburn (who's good, just not Buff), and get 1 year to UFA Read as the difference.

Would have to think the Jets would be targeting guys like the Schenns, Voracek, Simmonds, 1st round picks, and Coburn (unless the Flyers want to add Buff to Coburn) etc.

I'd really prefer for the Flyers to avoid Byfuglien. He'd be a great D-Man for us, but if Winnipeg wants one of our core pieces for him, I don't think the Flyers would get any better after a deal like that.

I think every team is interested in having between 1 and 6 of those on their d. Guess Ek could put any team in that slot and we would probably say "yup, sounds like something they would be looking for, not sure how they could afford it though".

Very true I would believe that they want to replace pronger, and although it seems unlikely to happen, I suppose Holmgren has pulled of some pretty wild trades in the past.

Although I'd like to have Byfuglien, I am quite hesitant about his future.

He's most likely not going to get better, as he is at his peak age right now (he'll be 28 in late March) and his body type is not conducive for a long and healthy career.

He has shown some injury troubles both last season and this one, and it does worry me especially with his height & weight.

As a FLyer fan who watched every Jet game, I dont really want Buff. I also recognize the Flyers need for a puck moving D man. If Im the jets I want Coburn plus one of the fwds if they were to move Buff to Philly.

Jets ask Coburn and Simmer ( Jets get better imo, they need a fwd like simmer and a top pair of Coburn/Bogo going fwd could play 25 mins a night) but doubt Flyers trade Simmer.

Flyers offer Coburn and Read , but Jets probably pass.

What do Jets or FLyer fans think of Couts, Mezz for Buff and Slater ?

As a Flyer fan, I pass on Byfuglien. Guy is a glorified 4th forward. If you think the Flyers are terrible now in their own zone, wait till you add Big Buff to the mix.

Plus it seems that WPG fans think he's worth his weight in gold. I don't even think he's worth half that. Give me the 200 lbs of gold any day.

Buff to Philly starts with Courterier and a first. I can't see any other asset absent Simmonds that Winnipeg would want assuming Giroux is untouchable. This isn't one where you package Laughton and a first, or Laughton, Cousins and a second. You have to give to get.
