In and out

February will be exciting for this team as we have an opportunity to revamp this lineup and look to the future. First and foremost I would hope that Forsberg would agree to waive his no trade and allow us to benefit from his reputation here are a few others I think we should move as they would have a good net gain.

Mike Knuble- great guy, scores when hot - should get at least a prospect.

Esche- maybe a 3rd or 4th if lucky-beggars shouldn't be choosers

Sanderson- playing well and stock is rising- take the prospect- I know he has a year left but he is affordable

Calder- maybe a 2nd rounder- I don't think he is coming back- good player just not here.

And finally Forsberg- I don't know why but I just see Vancouver. Make sure that Schnieder is part of the deal he is said to be promising and Louongo is there for a while so they should be willing to part with the kid. In turn this team has an opportunity to really create a new foundation for the future with Umberger Carter Richards Gagne and Pitkanen.

Agreed. Dont forget Kapanen as well. Should be able to fetch a midround pick from someone.

Knuble to the sharks
Kapanen to Carolina
Sanderson to Anaheim
Forsberg to either Anaheim, Calgary or Atlanta

If Calder turns it around I wouldnt mind keeping him since he is young but if he gets some good value in return go for it.

I am all for trading Forsberg, but if for some reason they decide to keep him for another year or two, I would like to keep Knuble as well.

I agree. Maybe we should just start one big thread that says "Discuss all things related to the suckiness of the Flyers"

Rather than starting a new thread...

Eklund is saying the Flyers are close to acquiring Liles and Budaj from the Avs.

Not for Forsberg.

That would be a good start to revamping this lineup.

Send Esche to the minors, Budaj backs up Nitty.

Of course, it's Eklund. It's just interesting that finally someone has a rumour that will BENEFIT the Flyers.

He's right about 0.006% of the time, so I guess there's some hope.

It is Eklund, true. My thought would be who would be going for those two? Needs to be something of value. How is Liles defensively?

I think I rather have Vaananen. It is stay at home dmen we need.

no way to say that for sure... if liles is coming back im sure we are going to have to give up something that we don't want to give up (if it isnt forsberg of course)

Isn't Colorado fairly close to the cap? They still have a cap hit from the declined options for Sakic and Blake. I think there has to be some bad contracts coming this way. Also, Theodore has been terrible, and Budaj has been playing pretty well. I find it unlikely they would trade him without getting a goalie back unless they is another shoe to drop.

All in all, I don't even think this is a decent internet rumor. Not Eklund's best work.

I'd rather have Leopold than Liles.
