Trade in works for Flyers?

Quote:
WASHINGTON -- What does Paul Holmgren have up his sleeve?

It doesn’t take a mathlete to understand that the Flyers are currently over the NHL’s $64.3 million salary cap with Chris Pronger on the roster.

Pronger will not play again, but the Flyers must retain his salary cap hit on their roster for the first day of the season before he can be move to the long-term injury list.

It’s important to note that the first day of the salary cap begins Monday afternoon - and the Flyers’ first game isn’t until Wednesday against Toronto. Meaning, many expected the Flyers to simply make a “paper transaction” and send waiver exempt forwards Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier to the Phantoms for the first day and re-call them on the second.

Cool, I didn't know Schenn and Couturier were waiver exempt.

I don't think Schenn is. Something to do with age and number of NHL games played.

If you're on an ELC, which they both are, you're waiver exempt. Couturier's actually played more NHL games than Schenn.

There have been rumors all summer that the Flyers would like to move a defenseman, considering their jogjam there and that they continue to say they are impressed with tryout Hal Gill.
Awesome.

Not surprised to see Frank not doing his homework.

Brayden Schenn is exempt from waivers.

How many NHL regular season and playoff games did the player appear in in 2010-11?

8

Number of career NHL regular-season and playoff games?

121

http://www.capgeek.com/waiver-calcul...121&Calculate=

You guys entered the wrong number of games in the first question. When he was 19, (2010-11), Schenn played in 8 games (for LA), not 65. That was 2011-12 when he was 20 (and in Philly).

He has 22 games or 1 accrued season (which ever comes first) before he is not exempt.

I seriously hope they don't just hand Mez the 6th spot over Gus cause of his experience and what he used to be. Gus actually started to play well, Mez has been ok or bad and mostly the latter.

Then someone asked him if Mitchell was involved or was it just a D for D swap and he said "possibly. I imagine Mitchell wants more than 4th line minutes after last year."

Someone please take Mez! It's ashame his career's been effected by injuries but he's been really bad out there.

Get rid of Meszaros? Seems like a good reason to me. One guy makes $1.1 million, the other makes $4 million. I'd rather have the $1.1 million guy.

Mez for a bag of pucks plz.

At least a bag of pucks doesn't have a 4.0 cap hit.

To add to this, John Mitchell had tweeted earlier a link to that philly.com article.

And Mez for Mitchell? I'd be happy with that trade.

Hunwick + Mitchell for Meszaros


Avs would need to clear a D man off the roster, plus Hunwick balances out some of the salary that the Avs are taking back on in Meszaros.

If he can be happy in the role, Mitchell is actually a decent 3rd/4th line energy winger that has some scoring pop. In a pinch he is capable of being a 2nd/3rd line winger and a 2nd PP player.

The thought process that I imagine Mitchell is having right now is that he wants the chance to get 2nd/3rd line ice time to drive up his value on his next contract. There is a legit chance that he might not even dress every night for the Avs given their forward depth/needs. There is no room in the top 9, and he might not fit on the 4th line due to the Avs probably looking for a more rough and tumble 2-way center, being Brad Malone at the moment.

Mitchell is nothing special, but he is a decent depth winger. He can also play center, but is better on the wing.
