They add Simmonds we add N Schultz.

Flip Gagner for a top 4 D man.

Moving our 2014 1st by all means..... Go ahead.
Next year's 1st, any prospect not named Klefbom, Gagner, Hemsky, and Paajarvi should be in play in the off-season.

I imagine if we were watching Couturier this year you might feel the same (souring on him).

It's not like Couturier has been lights out so far in his career.

I want him absolutely. Not for the big 4 forwards though. I think he's a step behind.

Cheaper skilled forwards like the following mentioned above is something Holmgren would want in return for a Couturier. I could see them being added to a potential deal for Couturier

I'd do both those deals in a heartbeat, and claim Volpatti while I'm at it.

I think I'm going to puke with all the Eberle trade talk..... Team just made him the assistant captain and only reason not the captain is because we still employ our captain (Horcoff)

Give it up. He's not moving.....

The talk about Eberle to Philly has an issue in that the Flyers have zero cap space to make such a trade. They can't afford to add any salary this year or next really. Ebs 6 million is prohibitive.

That's too bad, moving him for this package makes the team better.

Well Gags isn't a really good center, and he is horrible at faceoffs. I wouldn't feel to bad giving him up, and it looks like hes going to have a good year so his value will be as high as its been since his rookie year.

Secondly, Evander Kane in my opinion is better than every winger on this team.

if we had him and hall on our first line that would devastating to other teams.

I'm sure a Gagner supporter will come in and disprove that with a plethora of stats that say otherwise, so I won't bother.

We can't trade our 2C if another C isn't coming back somehow.

Simmonds and Couturier together much equal 6 million.

We already have Belanger, Horcoff, and RNH so I don't think its that big of a loss.

However, I do agree that the second line C would have to be address for the long term but thats another deal.

Doesn't buying out Pronger open up a bunch of room for them next season?
