I can't imagine how much he's worth with the season he's having.

No clue, but i'd much rather them see target Tyler Myers and get a scoring winger elsewhere if possible.

I'm sure Couturier would be in discussion. If they could come up with a package to get both of them, that'd be swell

That would be a huge package...and say impossible if it wasn't Homer we're dealing with.

Haha exactly. I'd say something like that would never happen but the fact that were talking about Homer here... who knows

That's over 12 million in cap space... Unless they were taking on Danny b and we ltir mez and coburn we can't do that. I'd be more interested in a couturier for Myers swap

Well, yeah. I'm not saying anything like that is likely at all. I'm sure it would include all sorts of different pieces. It was more of a blockbuster dream trade depending on what it'd take

At this point, I have no idea what Paul Holmgren is thinking. The Flyers should be sellers right now. Go draft a top 5 player, amnesty Briere and try and trade for a defenseman in the offseason when you see what you got in the draft.

Serious question. Are the Flyers really trying to make the playoffs this year?

Holmgren is being a good GM and kicking tires around the league on players that would help his team. Because he is one of the few GMs that has the courage to make big deals, any time he talks to another GM it is news. I am sure that a lot of GMs have called about Vanek.

Better question... Are the Flyers really looking to add a high priced winger over a high priced d-men?

Their defense is just brutal and correct me if I'm wrong but they have some solid pieces offensively, no?

They do, but their offense isn't nearly as productive as it was last year. Briere's play seems to have fallen off a cliff, and Jagr's gone.

Less Briere and no Jagr are probably factors, but not that big. The talent on offense has been fine (#1 PP in the league) but the problem is the lack of a good transition game (lousy 5 on 5). Thus the big need for PMD. It's hard to score goals when you struggle to get the puck past your own blue line.

Time for Briere to get a change of scenery?

Nah, no way. He's too good in the playoffs.

That's ~13m in salary coming Phillys' way. As they're a cap team, that's a lot they'd have to be sending back to Buffalo.

I honestly don't see how they could do a deal like that and make it work.

The Flyers are only going to want Vanek until they see the price.

a price that's going to include multiple 1st round picks, roster player(s), and a blue chipper.

It's an Issue for a Philly team that only has $2 million to spend on 4 more players for next season.

Nope.

Change Read to Simmonds and change Gustafsson to a 2014 1st and you got a deal.

Vanek and Myers are Regier's 2 biggest assets... it would take a lot more to pry them away.

also the Flyers have 12.7m in space?
