What prospect? Because nothing they have impresses me.
Yeah I agree. Bärtschi is the only thing I can think of but it's not good enough IMO.
Edit: If it's Bärtschi + 2014 1st we're talking then maybe since I imagine they'll be a top 5 pick next season and the Flyers could use another LW. Still I don't much like the idea of moving Couturier and I imagine the Flames wouldn't much like the idea of moving Bärtschi.
Trading Coburn for a dman that hasn't been as good as Coburn yet and in reality projects to be no better then what Coburn was projected to be. It's not like Coburn is 34 y/o and needs his replacement found.
If the Flyers can add EJ or Bogo for Laughton and picks (s) that would make more sense.
Sorry but I disagree. For me, they are on the same level right now based on athletism and defensive coverage.
But if you include the Hockey IQ and potential I see Bogo miles ahead.
Also, while I don't really want to see couts traded... If we can get calgarys 1st round pick, which will likely be a lottery pick and possibly top 3, and potentially get a guy like Ekblad... That's someone I'd have to think long and hard about.
He was the best player in college hockey last year as a sophomore, and led the WJC in goals. As someone that has seen him in person 4-5 times each the past two years, his size doesn't matter. He has a nose for the net, and knows how to find open space, a lot like Briere. You lose track of him, and next thing you know he's wide open and about to score.
NHL Draft is in Philadelphia next year, Flyers will not move there 1st round pick, Snider/Luukko orders
I highly doubt that. If a good trade comes along involving that pick they would be stupid not to approve it. I would agree that they may value that pick more than they normally would and more than other teams would but I doubt it's completely out of the question to move it.
