@TSNBobMcKenzie: Also, PHI is in market for D and may be willing to move one of their young centres - B Schenn or Couturier - for the right deal.


Thats what Bob McKenzie tweeted. What do you guys think? I think that were too thin on D already so we skip. What if we still had Bouwmeester?

No way we have enough to pry either of those two guys away now. Maybe Bouwmeester did, but unless we're giving up Brodie (which is a massive "hell no") then we very likely can't get Couts or Schenn.

Please don't even bring that up. The thought that we could have gotten Schenn or Couts for Bouw will give me nightmares.

I've always wanted Couturier but we can draft our own centreman now and not give up more assets.

I think Phoenix and the Flyers are the best trading partners, maybe the Jets too.

Right.
Instead of the bottom pair Dman, complete unknown goalie and the first. I'd rather have started the Calgary rebuild with Schenn or Couturier; this is NOT a knock on any of the three pieces we got back from the Blues... however, Schenn and Couturier in my book would have been nicer pieces.

Giordano could get this deal done as well, but Feaster deems him untouchable (Why, I have no idea).
I don't think Wideman could get this deal done.
Brodie could, but shouldn't be touched, he still has room to improve his game and truly be a high end D-man.
The rest of our old guard/AHLers have zero chance of getting this deal done.

Philly wasn't giving up Schenn or Couts for J-Bo. His cap hit was just too large for a team already with cap troubles.

He thinks he is a great player who is captain material (said this in the ticket holder meeting).

I would send a package around Gio for Couts and cap dump.

It's actually fair value in my opinion. Gio can play 1st pairing minutes and he has a fairly good contract for the calibre of player he is(which the Flyers are looking for). Counts really underperformed this season and from watching him, he will most likely become a good 2nd line center.

Giordano+brossoit+pit 1st for couterrier+mezaros/talbot

Mezaros and talbot are the only two "cap dumps" the flyers have that I think Calgary would be interested in. No interest in briere or bryz

Also I doubt schenn is available seeing as he had a breakout year and they acquired his brother just last year. Couterrier on the other hand I can definitly see Philly dealing for a top defenseman

Too much salary going in. They have to dump one of their big contracts to make it work.

Backlund is the best player in that deal.

Briere could be bought out before the season starts. Or, we could throw in Butler and take back Mez.

Hypothetically, imagine having Sven, JG, Jankow, Couts, and Nichushkin as our top 6 in 2 seasons.

Lol, yeah I know how you feel about him. I just think there's no denying his talent, Weisbrod better damn well of done a good job on interviewing him to get a good read in what makes him. I want whoever we draft to have a team first attitude and have a commitment to winning, if that kid doesn't have it then I'd be happy to pass by on him. However if he does, with his physical tools, he may very well end up being the most dynamic player out of this draft.

Those 5 players I listed have an incredible amount of size and skill.

I think Flyers, if they are shopping Couts would be looking for someone better than Giordano

I really hope you're not serious. Giordano is a big upgrade on Schenn. I would rather have Backlund and Glencross than Schenn. Lastly, there would be no way that Briere would waive to come all the way to Calgary.
