[QUOTE=raketheleaves]I was talking with a friend of mine who is a Flyers fan and he said that Hitchcock announced that he is planning to use Primeau on the checking line. The Flyers are sick of not being able to score goals. I'm not sure how Perreault helps tho. But Garon and Ward would be very attractive to them, I'm sure. This is not a far-fetched proposal by any means.

Yes it is. Primeau played on the third line last year and played great and thats a role he is really great at this point in his career, Perreault on the other hand I wouldn't want in that role, and hes not going to unseat Roenick or Handzus at the first two center spots. We would the Flyers want Garon or Ward? Garon has not little to nothing in the NHL and the Flyers are high on Esche, and we have no room for Ward, he would be spending another year in the AHL, we have to many Wingers as it is right now.

I guess you're right. It makes no sense for a contending team to trade a guy like Primeau, even if he is in his last year. You guys sure could use Garon tho.

Maybe Clake wait until the waivers draft to see if he can get a golies in !

If not the rumors make sense for me!

Perreault can be a relly good 3RD centre for the flyers
Mathieu garon Will be a #1 in NHL!
Jason Ward was just thats flyers love in a hockey guys!

But he wait o see if CuJo will be available to pick at Flyers rank!

I don't understand why they would give up on Primeau at all. Stick him on the second line on left wing and let him go to work. He's a great defensive player, so Hitchcock must like that. Maybe he's damaged goods?

Not a terrible trade for them. They get a #1, a playmaker (which they badly need) a second pair D who has a buyout at the end of the year.

Not to mention that Primeau is a UFA and Esche is a backup.
