Someone is having fun.
If we are moving Couts it better be at the draft to move up to select jones

In any case, you don't want Vlasic if you want a PMD. He's basically a shutdown dman, that's it. If you want a young PMD, it's Demers or Braun or even Irwin.

If we get your 1st + Read, that'd be a steal. I'm sure we'd have to add.

Other forwards we'd love to have are Simmonds or Voracek.

Maybe Boyle, Clowe for Voracek + 1st? No idea what's fair value - just tossing it out.
Oh, come on man. Voracek + our very likely high 1st in this deep draft? If you want something like that then I'm going to ask you how's Logan Couture feeling.
Voracek is untouchable right now and isn't being moved, same goes for our 1st draft pick this year (atleast I hope).

Would we move Coots and the pick for Clowe and Burns?

We would have to add for salary purposes?.....

Boyle and Clowe wouldn't get you Voracek. Let alone, Jake and a 1st

I believe I would as long as Clowe can be locked up for a few more seasons. I'd like the idea of Burns playing either offense or defense.

Edit: Not a first though

Let's wait and see what happens. I know everyone loves Couturier, but there is a very clear log-jam at center (Giroux, Schenn, Couturier, Cousins, Briere, Laughton). Someone, at some point, is going to have to be traded (or let walk for nothing). Briere is probably gone one way or another. You could move Cousins and Schenn permanently to wing, but there is no telling how that will turn out. If the return is good, I am fine trading Couturier. If it is Couturier for Clowe unsigned, I will not be fine with that. I'm thinking that those two would be part of a larger package. What else that package might include, I haven't the foggiest, but I would be surprised if it was Couturier for Clowe straight up. If it is, that is a terrible move, at least on paper.

More than Coots? Burns + Clowe to a borderline playoff team? It seems to me that Homer is really reaching if this is the deal

CONFIRMED: #Flyers are having exploratory talks for Jagr, Clowe and Bouwmeester.
We win 2 games, and he goes nuts. Can't we not just stay put for 1 single season?

Adding a guy like Clowe is unnecessary when there are bigger holes to fill...

Rumour was Couts for Clowe... if that's the case, I think we'll all be crying - me out of joy, you guys out of horror.

Its hard to really grasp this move if its truthful. I just don't see how it makes us a sure cut playoff contender this season. And clearly Coots will develop so I'm not sure how it helps next either

You would think they would at least wait and see how the games tonight go (NYR and Carolina playing). It is entirely possible the Rags win tonight and Wed and we lose a tough one to MTL, putting us 6 points back.

If this team did find "magic" over the weekend, it did so without Clowe. Let things play out, McGinn can fill in for Max. Unless this is a situation where Clowe only wants to come to philly so the Flyers can get him cheap, I see no reason to do this.
