This is awesome! Their cap is tied up so much in only a few players.




They were never far apart.

Edmonton is on Coburn's list of teams that he would allow a trade to.

I would be very wary of Seguin, he is a great player, but for about 2 years now there have been rumours about his attitude being very poor.

I remember in 2011 he had apparently missed multiple meetings and that the organisation were upset with this, but in addition implied they were concerned with him failing to hold himself responsible for the indiscretions and instead using excuses.

I mean, the Winnipeg-Boston time difference alarm excuse was hilarious... considering that the excuse was so poor and ill thought out!

I also remember a few analysts calling him 'immature' and stating he needed more 'humility'.

Also a teammate or two effectively called him out and said they had 'spoken to him' about his attitude.

This year there have being rumours about partying as well surfacing.

And now big rumblings about the Bruins wanting to move him, when he is the kind of player on the ice that most teams would consider 'untouchable'.

Not saying I would not want him... as I have said he is undoubtedly a great player, and I don't know the guy personally, so can't say for certain what he is like as a person, but there are a few alarm bells, some may be just sensationalist rumours, as most Philly fans are more than aware of, can happen, but there have been indiscretions in the past that have been proven.

Yes Sam, it is terrible news for the Flyers. We are all terrified about the prospect of our biggest rival having 25 mil locked up in 3 players!!

Seriously, people actually pay these guys to tweet this nonsense.

How much will the cap rising help bail that out?

Call me a homer but I think Schenn will end up being the better player than Seguin so I'd rather keep Brayden. Luke is better than Hamilton right now but not sure the difference between them in the future is the 11th this year.

I pass.

I don't care about that. I care about them having $7M+ tied up into 3 players. Plus I didn't want Holmgren to even have a chance at signing Letang.

I'm still holding out hope Carolina wants Coburn for the 5th overall. They aren't interested in edler it just came out. Coburn is a top 4 signed at good term and money. Fits what they want exactly.

I'm really happy that they decided to spend an absurd amount on only 3 or 4 players - instead of getting VERY high pick for tonight plus getting quality prospects. When I also think about keeping Fleury, I can say only one thing - this is fantastic.

Letang signing can only mean good things for Coburns stock. Him and Edler are the two best D-men being shopped (that we know about). Carolina isnt interested and I doubt Van would trade him the EDM. That means both teams could be going hard for Coburn.

The only possible hold up would be if Carolina is on the list of teams Coburn would allow a trade to.

Leafs and Canes have talked about 5th overall. Might cost Toronto Morgan Rielly as part of a package. Not close, but discussed.

I don't think Coburn's reeling in a top 10 pick alone.

Morgan Rielly has proven nothing at the NHL level. I don't find this as a surprise. While a top prospect, it would be a risk trading for him when Carolina is in win now mode.

Maybe something like

Read
Coburn
41st overall

5th
Ryan Murphy.

HA, never would happen.

Eklund now saying Phaneuf might help Carolina give up the 5th overall. This is kinda silly though because it has been widely know they want term while at an affordable salary. Phaneuf doesn't provide either of these. He is a UFA after this year and is going to make more if he hits the open market. The Canes were not interested in Letang because of the price tag he would carry, wouldn't Phaneuf bring the same ordeal?

Looking at it right now, all those people who rushed in just to say "Mark Streit. Streit!! Shut up, Streit!!!!"... What does this even have to do with Letang? They are going to cap hell no matter how many exclamation marks they put after the name of Mark Streit. They just see a Flyers avatar and feel the need to behave like the most mature child in kidergarten

Well it does say as part of a package. While he's not proven he's probably the best defensive prospect and should be NHL ready for next year. I'm just saying I wouldn't be getting my hopes up for Coburn to bring back a top 10 pick without us giving up other assets.

Penguins fans are unbearable and fans of other teams like to jump in a cause a stir just cause they hate the Flyers. The main boards are only tolerable for so long.

I agree. I was cracking up when I saw where Coburn was going to fetch us a top 10 pick alone. Oh well its getting almost that time folks!!

Really seems like the asking price is too damn high for Carolina's 5th overall.

One of #Canes many offers to trade down for #5th pick comes from #Sabres at 8th. Swap would cost Sabres one of their D man. Myers?

I neither believe Brayden Coburn lands you the 5th overall nor that Tyler Myers - contract, regression, & everything else - only moves you up 3 spots. There'd have to be more to that. A ton more.
