Let's put that trade into contex, shall we?

Would you trade Al Montoya, a first, a second and a third for Joe Thornton?

I don't think that is the right context

The players mentioned coming from LA are not in the same catagory as Thorton and the kids on the flyers are as good as Montoya from a prospect point of view

I love Richards, I would give Vis for him for sure.

But from a Philly perspective, no chance.

Question is: Who will Philly be looking to dump? Knuble? Gagne? Can't see them moving Pitkanen, Richards or Carter. They need to shake it up significantly. No one will want Hatcher, either.

Snider has essentially demanded that this team will no longer trade kids for vets.

Honestly, Brown's a bit of an enigma right now.

He was okay last season, getting 28 points and playing a very physical game, but the scouting reports mentioning a lack of hockey sense seem to have been pretty accurate. His first few games, he similarly showed a lacking.

But the past couple games, he's played much smarter and finally notched his first goal of the season tonight.

So, the long and short of it, is that he's likely not going anywhere anytime soon, but I'm certainly interested in what you think would be good trades for Brown.

Why would Philly give up any young players to get older and $50 under t he cap. If this seaosn is going to hell why save it?

I was talking about the Oates trade.

I don't really know to tell you the truth. I stay away from trade proposals of my own because I admit to not knowing, and honestly, only one person in the history of HF (to my knowledge) has nailed a trade proposal where the value was right and that actually happened (Calder for Handzus).

I don't think Philadelphia has the assets to trade for Brown. But I would probably over-pay just because I love the guy.

Someone mentioned defensemen to play along with Johnson - would Picard be a start? He's our highest rated prospect. But then the Flyers don't have a lot of defense prospects so it's probably stupid from their end.
