Petr Sykora

There's been talk on TSN and on the Anaheim board that the Ducks will make a pitch for Markus Naslund. If that happens, the talk is that Sykora will be released. If that's the case, as an organization, do we see what it would take to get Petr to Philadelphia? I think he'd be a marvellous fit here. Put him on a line with Gagne and Carter or Gagne and Richards and I think it would be something else to watch. He wouldn't cost too much either and you know that he would be defensively responsible. And when you consider he's won a cup with the Devils, he would be able to parlay that experience. I think it would be something that we'd have to look at.

If we can get Niedermayer, I'd say go for it. Getting a solid top 4 defenseman and a scoring LW might be more realistic. I hope we don't go hog wild and overspend on a d-man who won't live up to the money. Budgeting salaries is going to be so much more important under a cap.

Very interesting pattern emerging... If we do alot of the moves discussed on this board (buy out leclair&rico, sign neids and now sykora) we will actually have more devils from that 3-1 collapse then flyers.
Flyers:
Gagne
Primeau
Devils:
Sykora
Stevenson
Nedermieyer

Maybe this is a new tactic we can use...

I was tempting makes a trade offer in the Sykora thread over on the trade rumours board. I think if he returns to his 30 goal form when the Ducks went to the finals he would be a good addition.

With his experience playing in defensive schemes in NJ and ANH I think he'd have no problem fitting in with the Flyers. If Kapanen-Primeau-Roenick is a line, then Gagne-Carter-Knuble and Sykora-Handzus-Radivojevic would look nice as well.

He might cost too much. I would probably take him over Stillman for that much though.

I think we might be looking more at Kapanen-Primeau-Radivojevic as your checking line and then Gagne-Carter-Roenick and Sykora-Handzus-Knuble as your scoring lines. But your lines do make sense as well and could work.

We need one more top 6 forward, depending on the price I'd be very interested in Sykora.
