Eklund jumping on this train, claiming there is 1 big trade floating around, one that has to get approved by the NHL & Players.

The NHLPA fought for and received stipulations for increased player comfort in the new CBA. Rickshaws are mandated, backs weren't comfy enough.

Spoiled athletes.

Not sure if its this train. There is one, and only one, team that Eklund has a positive track record on. The only team that when he says something you listen... and it is sadly the Flyers. Over the years its become obvious. Because of that he usually touts Flyers moves quite highly. With a Flyers trade he has no qualms saying entire names and details of the trade/signing in advance. Him saying "Im hearing rumblings of 2 teams maybe a deal needs to be approved."... I don't think its the flyers.

No ****? I must have missed that line during my casual reading sessions of the new CBA. Well, a deal is deal. Beef, you've been tasked with personally seeing that Coburn gets the full comforts that were contractually obligated to him for his trip to Edmonton. Just make sure to grab Eberle on the way back.

Seems like a plan, I'll take the Chicago leg. Love that city.

I'll chip in some bucks for food expenses.

Coburn eats rocks and roadkill. I think he will be okay.

Well we will see if anything happens between Homer and MacT in the box tomorrow. If they are spotted talking, then you can really see the smoke, but if there isn't much talking or them being seen together while Oilers are in town, nothing is imminent I would think.

Food expenses for the escorts. Coburn needs to eat more rocks to become tougher.

My alternate plan is to just buy an old muscle car, drive to Edmonton, stuff Eberle in the trunk and force him to be a Flyer. I don't believe the CBA prevents acquisition by kidnapping.

Check with Varlamov first. I understand he is a subject matter expert

Can't wait for this because I don't live too far from Oshawa. Make sure you post your itinerary so I can take pics!

Coburn and Hartnell (if he waives his NMC) could happen.

Both are from close to there Calgary and Regina (and more so Lloydminster, which is 2.5/3 hrs away) respectively.

I don't think it'd be wise for management to give up on the Schenn's yet. I haven't been upset with Brayden's game at all and it always looks like Luke has to simplify things on the ice.


I wouldn't be upset with a Simmonds/Mez combo either - which I think most could swallow - and I'm basing that on the fact that I don't see Hartnell waiving his NMC and the Flyers like Coburn, more.

I don't think Edmonton does that though.
I would trade Coburn, Hartnell, and Schenns for Eberle, JSchultz, and a cap dump (Hemsky?).

Course the Oilers would be dumb to do that.

It could be, but I think it is fair. I don't really care about any of the Flyers going the other way tbh though.

doesn't matter. with a right handed center, he can play the off wing without much adjustment.

How long has this been his diet? That's pretty low in Vitamin C. Perhaps his play has been so inconsistent because he has a chronic case of scurvy? Someone needs to throw him a lime before the next game.
