That's what I'd do. Nobody is stuck with anybody's cap hit. I'd trade Briere at the draft too.


This is annoying but this isn't impossible to remedy.

Poor Mez. Probably best to hang up the skates before things get even worse.

Sucks, but at least it'll get Gus skating up here.

There'd be no reason to believe that the Flyers couldn't land a blue chip prospect, a 1st and young roster player for him. It'd be a nice way to kick off the rebuild. Yep, using that word that should have been used back in 2007.
I'm slowly coming to the same conclusion. I still cling to some hope, but it's increasingly looking like he's never going to be a go to guy. He's looking more and more like a permanent complementary player. If someone wants to offer a great deal for him, it has to be taken.

I assumed at first that he's been playing with some sort of injury, but I doubt it now. It's been long enough that some sort of rumor should have surfaced if that were the case.

If you're shopping Hartnell I'd look right to San Jose and do a Hartnell for Clowe and a 2nd swap. Same type of player and I think Clowe costs less?

Mez has sucked but was hoping he would get traded. Now mer glass is hurt again.

Honestly, wouldnt be surprised if he is one of the buyouts.

So now our defense is:

Timonen-Schenn
Coburn-Gervais
Gustafsson-Foster

That's just swell.

Well, I am not a person who believes in god(s), or karma, and that stuff, but come on man. Seems like Mez always gets hurt somehow.

Gus was fine until he got hurt. After that, he played tentative and was making bad decisions. And when you really look into things, he's played how many NHL games? I don't think he's been really given a legitimate shot to be honest. His mandate has been pretty much "play mistake free and if you don't, you're going to lose ice time and be demoted to Adirondack."

Yeah this is how I feel about it as well. Rookies and young players are going to make mistakes, and if you want them to develop, you have to deal with it. Sending him up and down does nothing but kill a young player's confidence. The constant adjustment between leagues isn't much better either.

There wasn't any reason Gus wasn't here in the first place unless everyone felt he lost his confidence. It's called growing pains. But this team wouldn't know anything about that when it comes to defensemen coming up from the minors.

Put Gus with L. Schenn. Put Timonen with Gervais. Then Coburn and Foster. Or call up Manning or something 'cause this is getting nasty.

Well in the bigger picture, with our injuries adding up, we are almost looking certain to get a top three pick and anyone of Jones, MacKinnon or Drioun is highly appealing .......so at least going forward, we will be looking very good overall....

Met his end when his body was torn apart. Also fitting.
