Is Reasoner not a center?

To be fair, it is NOT being reported on any Philly stations. Only in Vancouver supposedly.

OMG if this is true, what a freakin' steal by Lowe. Handzus and Peca down the middle? Smyth, Dvorak, Hemsky, and probably another top-six UFA? PRONGER? Damn, the BOA is going to be intense this year.....

Reasoner is a center.

I think all of us will agree that if this goes down, it's horrible for Philly. Even if it moves salary to get them some flexibility, you'd think they could get more than Reasoner for Handzus. Don't get me wrong, Reasoner is an ok player, but Handzus is really valuable and underrated IMO.

I'd take him on the Pens any day, though the Flyers wouldn't trade him within the division I'd imagine.

Either this deal isn't true or Philly has to be getting much more in return, otherwise Clark has had a mental breakdown.

What? I thought they cleared up enough room trading Roenick. I guess Philly needs to lose more payroll. I guess the 4 centers will be Forsberg, Carter, Primeau and Richards. Or Reasoner is a center and Carter is a wing.

That would just be stupid. Clarke would have easily made the best and worst moves of the offseason in a little more than 30 hours apart.

This makes no sense. If the Flyers were to dump Handzus, a center, they wouldn't want another center in return. I don't know about this one...

That's because it can't be true.



But I do need more confirmation that this is actually a legit rumor. Another message board doesn't count.

Everyone calm down. As much as I want this to be true, my gut tells me that the rumor starter is some little kid or my jaded Toronto colleagues who want to keep me up til 5 AM for the second night in a row.

Handzus makes $2.1 Mil, Brashear makes $1.8. I doubt they'd dump Handzus first.

Holy ex-blues batman!

Really, edmonton would have to be coughing up a high pick on top of that, at least. Philly would be better off getting "just" picks than just Reasoner.

I think it's bogus. I've been listening to the Edmonton Sports station (hoping for word on the Kariya rumour.. haha) and they haven't mentioned anything about Handzus for Reasoner.

That said.. I hope it's true!

I'm gonna call "BS", here's why:

(1) this was posted on "someone's name who shall never be spoken on HF again's" site by a poster there, I'm guessing the Philly board picked it up and passed it on.

(2) apparently someone in Vancouver heard it reported on the Team 1260 in Edmonton, guy must have good ears because 1260 doesn't have an internet feed.

(3) it's just plain stupid for Clarke to trade Handzus for Reasoner.


but hey, a guy can dream

I really don't see the need to trade Handzus. In fact it would make the Flyers a little weak for offensive forwards. It also would mean that Handzus would have to have been traded prior to the Forsberg signing.

I understand that the Flyers will be tight to get under the cap, with Johnsson, Esche and Gagne all pegged at around $2m each on average. Still Brashear is still there to be bought out. Reasoner + Brash's salary equals more than Handzus'.
