Yakupov?

I'll be honest with you, I would do Coburn +11 for MPS +7 every day of the week. I was vehemently against trading Coburn heading into the offseason, but that is only because I didn't think the return would be something I could live with. Nurse/Risto + MPS is a solid return. MPS could very easily just be a late bloomer. He had 34 points in his rookie season, which isn't too bad. He's a big guy that just needs to learn to use his size more. I'm not sure who he played with in EDM, but on a line with maybe Couturier and Schenn (if we are moving Schenn to wing), he could really flourish. That line could be a great mix of offense and defense.

EDIT: Also, this would free up cap space to sign a defender to fill in for Coburn (like Ference) or even offer sheet Pietrangelo. Factor in a trade of Mez and we could be looking at $10 million + in cap space to work with in re-signing guys or signing UFAs. Either way, I would be happy with the trade.

Oilers fans and Philly fans both dislike the deal, that's usually a sign that it's pretty fair.

I *really* don't want to give up Paajarvi but I'm a big fan of his so I'm probably biased.

MPS bounced around a bit but he ended up landing on the LW playing with Sam Gagner and Nail Yakupov. They went on a crazy run for a month or so where they were shooting the lights out. He has a lot of untapped potential.

If the Flyers move up to 7, I think it will be a forward especially if Nurse is gone; Lindholm or Monahan.

whats the value of Eberle? safe to say its more then just Coburn. I will also be shocked if Eberle is even in play.

And what if it turns out that we end up getting MPS+Ristolainen for Coburn+Nurse? That would be pretty annoying.

They get either of them, they can than trade Couturier for instance for a defender. Or 100% draft Risto.

If CAR takes Nurse, it means Nichuskin falls at least to 6...

I wouldn't we could do better than that. Homer's holding all the cards here. If we didn't trade Coburn it wouldn't be the absolute worst thing ever.

I still think Nichuskin is intriguing as well. It's no secret that the team is interested in getting another top line winger to play with Giroux, and Nichuskin could be just that.

If Holmgren pulls off Eberle, I'd be thoroughly impressed. One of my favorite players in the league. Don't see it happening though.

I don't want MPS.

I almost hope he's gone cause I really want a d-man but if he's still there I think you kinda have to pick him especially after he said he wants to play for the Flyers and he got out of his KHL contract.

Could be why they're interested in getting another pick. Maybe they want both.

Well a lot of writers are saying the Flyers should hold out for more considering they hold the cards here than the Coburn + 11th for MPS + 7th swap.

Get MPS and draft Nichuskin.

Nichuskin-Giroux-Voracek
Hartnell-Schenn-Simmonds
MPS-Couturier-Read
Rinaldo-Laughton-Talbot

We just dont have a young defender AGAIN.
