To Vancouver:
Jakub Voracek
Sean Couturier
Braydon Coburn
1st round pick

Thoughts?
Why don't we just include Giroux, the Schenn Bros, and Simmonds while we are at it?

Wow, these proposals by Vancouver fans are absolutely brutal. Break out the lube.

A FAIR trade between the two teams would be something like:

Vancouver gets:
Sean Couturier
Braydon Coburn
1st round pick (top 10 protected in 2013)

Philly gets:
Alexander Edler
Cory Schneider

It's definitely a bit of an overpayment by the Flyers, but it solves both of our primary problems (young potentially elite goalie + young potentially elite PMD) so I'm willing to do it.

A Flyers first round pick that will be in the top ten.
And Couterier
And Vora?
This about sums it up. Way too much value going towards the Canucks.

Terrible. Couturier+Coburn+2nd for Edler+Luongo and I'd consider.

We could get a better return for that package.

Value wise, yeah, I agree we give up more than we get. But the guys me and you would expect to get for a Coburn+Couturier package just aren't going to move no matter how much we give up. Edler is the type of player that the Flyers desperately need. We're not going to land an OEL type no matter who we give up, so I say just hedge our bets and at least consider a deal that plugs a gaping hole on our team.

I was gung ho about developing strong center depth going into the season, but the past two months have made me realize that the one thing this team needs above all else is a stabilizer on the back end. Edler, while not perfect, could be that kind of guy.

And I have more confidence in Luongo than most, so I have no problem if Flyers fans think that offer is too rich.

On behalf of all Canuck fans I apologize for this awful trade proposal.

It's a shame Philly didn't wait another year to attempt to fix up their goaltending issues, but it is what it is.

Way too much coming from Philly in the OP. No explanation needed here.

But Schneider+Edler is too much for Sean Couturier and Braydon Coburn. Big, point producing, and fast skating defensemen are really valuable. Schneider is pretty valuable too. Couts and Coburn isn't enough.

There should be a middle ground.

Sorry but the original proposal is embarrassing.

You want a middle ground? We don't need Coburn. We possibly could afford to move Edler & Schneider.

I'd do either

Either Edler or Schneider for Voracek straight up

or

Edler & Schneider for Voracek and Couturier.

And I think that middle ground is Philly adding a non top 10 first round pick (which is what I proposed).

Voracek isn't gonna move. Much less Voracek and Couturier together.

Teams that are in the bottom 5 in the standings should not be trading 1st rounders or 20 year old top prospects.(Couts)

And no playoff team is trading their #1 D-man...which is what Philly needs.

Philly just needs to trade off extra spare parts fo assets....pick the BPA at the draft...UNLESS...a team really wants a player available and is willing to pay for him.

Most Canucks fans know this. The original proposal was ridiculous, I'm not sure what he's been smoking.

I wouldn't move Voracek either, the guy has looked like a stud. I've seen a few Philly games this year and he has been your best player, he's turning into a beast.
