Karlsson to the Flyers

To Philly:
Erik Karlsson
Ben Bishop

To Ottawa:
Claude Giroux
Andrej Meszaros

Why? For Sens: Creates a top line of Michalek-Spezza-Giroux.

For Philly: Adds defense and goalie strength.

Thoughts?

The Senators don't do it and I don't know if the Flyers would either.

Makes no sense for either team to do this.

Neither team does this.

Mez is a good player, but imagine Ottawa's defense on paper without Karlsson

I would say yes as a flyer fan

I would say no as an Ottawa fan.

value wise that's a really fair deal! Not sure which package I would rather have..


I know this is crazy, but maybe the deal was even closer, if PHI addes Timonen and if OTT addes Alfredsson

Both EK and Giroux are pretty much untouchable. Neither is going anywhere soon IMO.

Giroux is an amazing, phenomenal player, and I would dearly love to have him on my favourite team.

But unfortunately I would still say no to this.

Pretty sure Flyers fans would feel similarly and that's a-ok, I can't blame them.

Meszaros and Bishop are just noise here.

From a Flyers point of view...NO WAY. If they would part with Claude, wouldn't you think Weber would be here already?

value wise? really? Timonen could fill the hole that EK leaves (at least for the next 1,5 years) and Alfredsson could help to overcome the huge loss of Giroux.

It's definitely not terrible value unless you're a major homer.

But each team will keep their own superstar the fans already know and love.

OP doesn't like Karlsson. Giroux is a top 5 center and their franchise. Sells tickets. Not a good trade.

I don't know why either team does this. They're both the face and future of their franchise.

I said on another thread that Tavares have more value than Karlsson, because I think a center > a defenseman, but Karlsson is simply great and I really don't like the defensive game of Giroux.

I think i'd prefer Karlsson over Giroux (with my habs).

This thread is just fantasy talk. EK and CG will never be traded, unless they want out..EK will be one of the top 3/5 d-man in the league and CG might become a top 5 forward.

If there's any one player on any team who is untouchable right now, it's Karlsson in Ottawa.

PHI would say the same about Giroux

Which is precisely why the proposal is absurd.
