Vancouver Canucks- Philadelphia Flyers

To:

D Keith Ballard
2013 2nd round pick
To:

F Matt Read

Philly bolsters their D and Nucks get a versatile player. Fair or not?

"Bolsters their d"? We have no need for Ballard, and Read is one of our top 4 forwards this year. No way.

Why would Philly do this? Read has more value than Ballard and a 2nd easily.

Flyers can't do this considering how cheap Read is and how expensive Ballard is.

Flyers won't do this because Read is an incredibly versatile forward who was, before his recent injury, leading the team in goal scoring.

No reason for the Flyers to make this deal. That said, I do like Ballard and would welcome him in Philly. Just wouldn't give up Read (or anything close to as valuable as Read) for Ballard. I think the Canucks would have to accept something minimal to rid themselves of Ballard and his contract. He's not really a bad player, but he hasn't worked in Vancouver and his contract is an albatross.

Would be a nice trade for the canucks. Not so much for the flyers.

Nope. Read was playing well before his injury and is really cheap. Makes no sense to trade him.

why do people keep wanting to trade top 6 forwards on the Flyers for defenseman. Especially forwards on good contracts like Read.
Pass. its not even close to fair value.

I do this trade if Vancouver eats all of Ballard's salary, then eats Ballard, and then craps out Zack Kassian in a Flyer uniform. I'd do it.

Matt Read is quite valuable. This is not even close.

Lol, no? Not close... Flyers don't need any bottom 4 defenseman, they need a top pairing D

Is this the same Ballard who has been scratched the past few games?

Definately worth a top 6 player.

Ballard isn't worth Reid, he just isn't.
