Absolutely.

Looks like Feaster slept in.

Not credible according to the trade board. Shut it down.

Gio and JG for Mez and Couturier seems like a good deal for everyone.

Any new news on this? Longer it goes on the less I believe it will happen.

If he's coming to CGY you'd think it would have to be next years 1st or Glencross going back.

FWIW, this is the original source of the rumour:

Rich Smith ‏@ALLsportsINTEL 3h
NHL - Flyers and Flames are reportedly discussing a trade that would involve Couturier, more details as they come in.

https://twitter.com/ALLsportsINTEL/s...65760610308096

Not sure how credible this guy is.

That's what I meant when I said "original source".

Any idea as to his credibility? <2,500 followers doesn't exactly fill me with a sense of confidence.

Oops skimmed over that. Sorry.

Never heard of him so I doubt this has any legs.

I'm alright with not doing alot in free agency. Most of the deals today have been too much. I don't want the patches we've seen the last while. Thats what the majority of these guys would be.

Agree 100%. I would've liked Ballard, Stalberg and Gilbert. Just because I think it gives us the option of trading Giordano (who I love btw) and Stempniak (who I also love). They could both bring in some young assets.

Flyers fan here.
The Flyers should push for Shattenkirk, not Giordano.
I can't see the Flyers moving Couturier for Giordano. Why should they?
For Couturier they could get a young defender with similar upside as he has, or an already established top defender like Shattenkirk. Maybe they would have to add a little, but it would make much more sense.

Peace

Not if they want the other team to take on a bad contract. The Blues in no position to do that, Calgary could.
