I was afraid that might be the asking price. Although some people in this town dont think we can afford both Petro and Shatty. I appreciate the response.

That's because he's stuck around enough to build up legitimate connections. A few years ago he was the Weekly World News of hockey journalism. Good on him for sticking with it and actually getting some real sources but some of the crap he threw out in his early days was pretty bad.

we're not going to trade our 2014 first and not have a 1st round pick in the draft that's in philadelphia either.

Not a package together, but a package of players with Simmonds and either Shattenkirk or Petro + Picks. I've always been a fan of Shattenkirk but Simmonds is just a phenominal presence. Im assuming Flyers would probably have to give a little more.

I heard Timonen was house sitting for Giroux during the lockout, and forgot to feed his fish. They all died, and Giroux hasn't been the same since.

If we trade Simmonds then we will have no one who gives his all every shift. We need to keep this kind of guys around because we are running thing on them. Only guys who I see give a all out effort is Jake, Wayne, Rinaldo.

Kimmo ate all of Giroux's Kraft singles. Oh, and left the toilet seat up.

Timonen does not need to interact with a toilet. He does not create waste.

Yes, do NOT get rid of Simmonds. He is really good and plays with his heart.

Me too, depending on the haul.

If the offense falters, just move him to forward

I saw him up on forward with Thornton in that game once or twice actually. He didn't look out of place to be honest.

Brent Burns would probably get another concussion the first week on this team with their luck.

Honestly though, I would support a Burns trade.

He was drafted as a forward and converted by Lemaire, it is surprising though how good he looked though after years on the blue line, I agree.

He's expensive, but with his skill, size and two-way play, AND he's on contract for another 4 more years, I'd probably say we'd have to trade away Coburn+ (and possibly another plus).

I feel like it would take a lot to get Burns after what Murray went for, but I'd be down with them trying though.

BTW..I heard this Burns chap was pretty Brutal Gervais on the backend until his move to forward?

Burns is not the answer. Foster is basically v2.0 of Burns. Size, but doesn't use it

No. The flyers would like Brent Burns based off his play and his stats. We have a couple of good Defensive Defensemen that you could pair a young Puck Moving Defensemen with, that could help Balance that out.

Size is nice but a 15+ Goal Scoring Defensemen that can also transition to forward and contribute is something that would be coveted across the league.

Right now we have no one to move the puck out of the zone besides Kimmo. Add to the fact that Burns is signed to a contract and young.

I realize that, but as the major centerpiece for Mike Green, are you kidding me...every day of the week.
