I doubt COL would move him, but I could see Homer trying to bring Downie back. Downie is good in the corners and "hard working players who win puck battles" is the flavor of the month in the organization.

Haven't followed Avs' camp but where is Duncan Siemans? Flyers liked him over Hamilton if Couturier had not slipped.

We'll know soon enough, because the Flyers generally don't sit around and wait for marginal players to become good. They see what they want to see and move on eventually.

Roy didnt even give him a pre-season game. He is going to be interesting to follow in the AHL this season but seems like he hasn't developed as much as they thought when they took him 11th overall.

If the trade is with Avs my only target could be bringing Downie back. Secondary options is McGinn+Siemens duo..

What Downie could take?

Downie would look great with Couturier and Read.

Avs fans on main board saying Coburn. They said the same about McGinn. No deal to be made outside of something around Mez IMO.

Either one of those packages would take Coburn, which doesn't seem wise to me.

I could send our first and Mezzy for Downie. I think we are going all in this season and bringing defender like Phaneuff next summer in with big money.

I don't think you use a 1st round pick to upgrade your bottom six--at least not with a team with this many question marks.

mesz for downie seems like a december deal. with the flyers under the cap its something to look at and see how both guys do coming back from injury. downie is a banger and once those guys get hurt thier game shifts with downies attitude i can see him reinjuring himself rather quickly. meszaros is coming off an injury but mitchell is tweeting his own horn being mentioned in a deal with mesz who when healthy is just plain better.

If the plan is to play Downie on the bottom six, then dont bring him in at all. He is better than that these days.

4th line of Rosehill-Laughton-Rinaldo. Ugly. What a waste of Laughton.

I keep seeing this and it's not that I don't believe you, I do in fact remember seeing proof of it somewhere, just wondering where was this confirmed?

I would like to believe it. But I would even keep Akeson over Rosewaste.

Carchidi:
I'm told the odds are LESS than 50/50 that #Flyers will make a deal before rosters have to be submitted on Monday at 5.
6:07pm - 28 Sep 13

So a trade any minute then?

If you actually think about it, Rosehill was gonna play against Toronto regardless. They are always trying to start ****. Need Rosehill in the lineup against those guys.

#Flyers have not had any talks with #Avs for Nixon aide, uh, Colorado forward John Mitchell.

Take that for what it's worth...
