As important as Read is to this team, I don't know how you can turn that down.

Seems Kind of counter productive for us. If we're moving read, I'd rather it be for Bernier than nino.

Agree. What the hell has Niederreiter done? He's an overrated prospect IMO. Trading him for Matt Read doesn't make us better now.

I still would do Read for Bernier. If Lombardi wants Couturier yeah i agree tell him to take a hike.
Yeah let's give LA Couturier so they win another cup with a shutdown centerman to replace Richards if his health continues to be a problem

dont know enough about Pokka to warrant an opinion on. Can Niederreiter play in the top 9 for this team and be productive? I am not sure.

I would rather not. I like Bernier a lot but not at the cost of Couturier.

Pokka is decent prospect (6ft, 200lb righty d-man from Finland), Niederreiter does have the bust factor but would be a great trading chip so we could stop getting a new Couturier to wherever thread made everyday. Maybe do something like flip Nino+something minor(3rd rounder) for Bernier and pocket Pokka.

I came across this (satirical) article at SB Nation:

Report: Flyers Trying to Acquire Everybody

An excerpt:

Quote:
"They want everybody very badly, and feel everybody could put them right back on track," the source told Panaccio. "Expect everybody to be in in play and connected to the Flyers this off-season."

The source goes on to say that the Flyers plan to submit offer sheets to every restricted free agent and sign every unrestricted free agent while also exploring trade offers for every young regular, every highly-touted prospect and every veteran in the NHL.
They end the article by talking about the cap difficulty with acquiring everybody, and even though they are buying out Briere, Holmgren is interested in immediately re-acquiring him.

The Toronto Maple Leafs are said to be not happy that someone is stealing their idea.

I'd not Read straight up for Niederreiter not because I am fully confident that Nino becomes as good or a better player than Read, but because of the cost/control associated. Read is very, very likely entering his final season with the team, whereas Nino is a controlled asset for several more seasons.

Zero chance. LA cannot afford to take back that salary, let alone wanting Mesz for a promising young Dman.

Paul Holmgren is the Isiah Thomas of the NHL GMs

I cannot wait to see what mistakes he makes this year with all of this new cap space.
