Eklund: Couturier to Flames

Per Eklund. I realize it's Eklund, but the only team he has legitimate connections to and gets right consistently is the Flyers. So somewhat credible.

I wonder what the price would be. You have to think cap would be coming our way in the deal. It would have to be around Bartschi, Brodie, Monahan or Giordano wouldn't it? I can't see anyone else on the roster or a prospect that you'd move Couturier for.

Only valuable pieces I can see us moving are Gio/Wideman since Brodie seems to be a part of the future core.

I can only see Philly biting on Giordano.

My thoughts as well, that or Bartschi. I can't see the Flames trading Monahan for him when they were unwilling to for Seguin.

Yeah. Maybe we get an overpriced, underperforming d-man back?

Mezaros would be the guy.

I love Brodie, but don't you at least consider it for Couturier? Wideman would be an absolute non-starter for cap strapped Philly. Giordano and a solid prospect (Gaudreau perhaps?) for Couturier and Pronger's dead cap space?

I'd consider moving Bart tbh. Bart IS NHL ready, and moving Monahan would be a step back for Philly.

Monahan, Couturier, and possibly Backlund down the middle is enticing.

Maybe (ideally):

To Flames:
Meszaros, Coburn, Couturier

To Flyers:
Cammalleri, Giordano, 2014 2nd

Everyone of those guys has shutdown center written all over them. We'd win lots of 2-1 games.

That would be incredible. I don't think even Homer is that crazy though.

Play nice children.

Wouldn't mind a Gio+ for Mez and Couts. Depends on what the plus is though.

Also who the hell is Rich Smith?

I could see either Mez or the Pronger mess coming back in the deal. If it's Mez I think the + we'd have to include would be fairly substantial. If we took the Pronger cap hit that they can't buyout there might not be much of a + at all. Mezsaros is still a useful 2nd pairing guy, whereas Pronger just sits there eating cap space.

You started the thread, in general when posting a rumor you should post a link of where you saw it. Its just common courtesy.

People talking about moving Bart, no thank you. Bart has far greater offensive potential than Couts and to be quite honest Monahan and Couts are similar players having both might be a little redundant.

Pronger whined like a ***** to get out of Alberta last time he was here. I don't see it. Wife issues, wasn't it?

Alright guys, let's squash it.

Its the responsibility of the OP to post the link when requested. If you cannot -- because you're on your mobile phone for example -- please say so and request that someone else posts it.
