Ott
13th overall

JVR
20th overall

Philly gets into the range to take one of the well-regarded Dmen (Ceci, Maatta, Pouliot, Trouba) and cuts over a million off their cap (also freeing up long-term flexibility) while gaining a player who will contribute now and won't be asked to do too much with their depth at forward. The Stars take on the riskier, currently overpaid, higher-upside player who possibly needs a change of scenery and then move back into the range of the 2nd tier centers (Hertl/Jankowski).

Does this make sense to anyone else?
Too good to be true?

I agree with you that Ott is a quintessential Flyers type player. I think a swap of those two players only occurs if Philly is done banking on JVR's potential and is ready to insert a piece to their lineup that they know exactly what to expect. They have enough young players that the possibility is definitely there for them to want a little veteran consistency to plug into their top 9.

I could see something like this happening but if it does it will likely have a couple more moving parts like us sending a 4th for their 5th or something along those lines.

I get the impression most Dallas fans aren't comfortable with Gaunce at 13, but I think Dallas might take him.

However, Gaglardi did mention there were some D that might fall that could be high end so some people think that could be Ceci or Maatta.

I'd be surprised if they drafted Collberg even though he's guy I'd really like at 13.

The whole regime has been beating the Center drum all offseason.
