While I would do it in a heartbeat, is there really any room on the Flyers for Erat?

I'm all for it as well and curious about cap space.

We really have no room for Erat to play, our top 9 is pretty set. He's also signed for another year at $4.5M, I rather just wait for Mez to come off the books this summer.

It would would work capspace wise, Erat is $4.5M while Mez is $4M. The Flyers currently have $2M+ in capspace.

Erat is signed for next year though, as I stated above I rather just wait for Mez to come off the books instead.

I would rather trade Mez for a 7th round pick so that we can gain some cap space this year as well as not adding another contract for next season

That's most likely what will happen don't really care for Hartzy tho. And weren't the flyers looking for a great forward a couple of weeks ago?

If this was a precursor to a Hartnell trade to the Western conference I'd be in favor of it.

Turns out shoulders are pretty important for a hockey player.

If he had only suffered the back and ACL injuries I think he'd be fine.

I doubt anyone take his 4mil cap and I say a 4th that becomes a 3rd if he plays like half the games with the team he go's too

True but the Flyers will probably dump Timonen's salary due to his retirement(if he goes that route) which saves I think around $6mil cap hit. I'm not sure this money should be spent on another forward but rather a solid young Dman. With Meszaros gone it will free up another $4mil so that should leave the Flyers at least $10mil to play with plus the cap going up as well. Is Erat really worth it though?

Sorry, I said ACL, but I meant Achilles. I think he recovered totally from that injury based on his skating.

Erat has been bad, but the Caps could get more for him than a pricey healthy scratch like Mez. Where would Erat even fit into our lineup anyway? The whole reason he wants out is that he is getting low minutes and not being put in offensive situations.

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek ------------Giroux has finally started to get going
Schenn - Lecavalier - Simmonds ------These guys have been solid together
Read - Couturier - Downie --------------Ain't breaking this line up
Rosehill - Hall - Rinaldo -----------------Would love to bump Rosehill out of the lineup, but Erat isn't a 4th liner and the whole point in requestion a trade is to go to a team where he'd play a top 6 role

Don't want Schultz, it wouldn't be worth it. Schultz is a glorified forward.

There's always room for a veteran Dman on somebody's roster when they need that type of player. For the right price it can be done.

Other than Girardi, there isn't really anything that sticks out to me. (i didn't read every name, just scanned 30 or so)

I'm pretty sure the back and knee injuries were just as bad. His stride makes it look like he's laboring just to skate.
