Flyers - Devils This will be a lesson in why I do not do this

Flyers get D Adam Larsson and 2012 1st Draft Choice

Devils get JVR and Bob

Why - Flyers get a young stud 1st pairing defenseman and a draft choice they can pair with their choice in a trade to catch a falling defenseman at around #12 or can draft a goalie (I like Dansk).

Devils get a person who can augment Parise or help replace him who is a local boy, as well as a successor to Marty who's style is somewhat similar without the stickhandling of course.

And yes, I know they are rivals, will never deal with each other yadda, yadda. I think Holmgren has never liked JVR since he stayed an extra year in college ad I think Homer believes he is weak. Larsson is not ready to really step in yet but he will be a very good replacement for Kimmo when he retires.

In the immortal words of Andy Reid... "Your turn."

Devils are definitely lacking on the wings.

This is nasty for the Devils. Adam Larsson is alot better then JVR is. And Im sure the Devils can go out and acquire a backup goalie on their own

We also don't need a young goalie. We have a few young goalies who at least one of should be ready in a year or two. We'll have Marty for at least one more year and if needed we can sign a vet for one year if Marty retires after next season.

Not sure why NJ would be adding their 1st...

This should probably be JVR, Bob, and Flyers 1st to get NJ to listen...

I'm sure they still decline.

For that price you can have Adam Larsson's jersey ... maybe even signed by him if Devils will be generous...

Did the Devils decide not to give up their pick this year?

JVR has been in the league for 3 seasons, and hasn't put up stellar numbers. It's been about 0.5 points per game in each of his 3 seasons. Not terrible or anything, but Larsson's upside is much higher.

Hypothetically, if I were the devils I wouldn't take two JVR's for 1 Adam Larsson.

Those immortal words are "Time's yours", btw.

This would be in the category of knifepoint robbery in favor of the Flyers, so yes, I like it. Almost as much as your thread title, which made me

This would be akin to the Devils asking for Couturier and the Flyers 1st for two good, but not great, Devils pieces. I think I know how Flyers fans would feel about a deal like that.

if Lou wouldn't deal Langs to the Flyers for a 2nd (he ended up going to Dallas for a 3rd), why the hell would he trade Larsson there with our first for JVR and another back-up to Marty? why don't we just draft vasilevski or whatever with the pick and NOT upgrade the Flyers defence to obscene status?

I wouldn't trade Larsson for JVR and Bob. But adding the pick?

Laughing man video was appropriate.

Philly will even throw in their first and this still doesn't get done.

IMO for NJD it's Couts/Schenn or no.

Devils throw in a 3rd round pick to not have to take Bobrovsky.
