I agree. I mean i am a huge fan of his, but that is one of the riskiest moves out there. The value is good but the risk is off the charts.

if by underrated you mean a bad defender, then that is true.

If the game changes to who has the best slapshot then sure...great pickup.

Isn't this hockey insider guy a confirmed fraud. Like literally just making stuff up in his parents' basement?

And as much as Jets fans convince themselves, he is not good as a 5.3 Mill 45 pt third liner.

I don't think Flyers are contenders, Rangers are probably closer in that regard with the King and that defense. Although I would like to see like a Hartnell - Vinny - St Louis line.

I'm surprised the Flyers haven't been in on the big name forwards like St Louis and Vanek like usual TBH. I would have liked them to go after Vanek too to find Giroux that scoring winger he needs. Or Kane, although the price would probably be too high.

Instead we're piling on with the middling defensemen.. I really just want to see Grossmann out of here now that we got MacDonald. Please let it be Grossmann and not Schenn.

If I were Paul, I'd ask for Enstrom instead. They're hurting for centers.

I know Buff is playing defense now and not wing, but he was a HUGE part of the Hawks being able to win the Cup. He did necessarily dominate on the state sheet (though he did have 6 points in 6 games), but he pretty much manhandled Pronger. Anyone that can do that is worthy of consideration. Idk if I like Schenn for Buff, but I am definitely interested in Buff in general on this team.

Regarding the Buff-Schenn rumor, i don't know what to think. Yes our D needs massive help, but I like Schenn... I'm torn. Doubt Wpg does it 1 for 1 though.

I think the Jets make a move for a guy like Legwand.
they are not going to trade Buff or Kane for Schenn.
add a center and weaken the wing or defense?
why do the Jets do that?

Legwand for a pick or 2 makes more sense for them

Its a rumor that makes sense tho, Jets need a center and we need a PMD D man.

Buff is playing wing on Jets and losing Schiefle is a big hit. As much as the casual Jets fan wants to stay the course, there is pressure from sponsors etc for this team to make the playoffs and they are closer than ever right now.

The idea was initially floated by a WPG beat writer. I'm not sure if he has info or not, but it certainly seemed like he was just putting the idea out there. I don't see it happening.

His defensive woes are overblown, he can be at least competent if he committed himself to it. The only problems with Byfulgien are his compete level at times & consistency.

If you think all he brings to the table is a big shot than you're clearly showing you know nothing about the guy.

It does, no doubt. But any substantial discussions are unconfirmed.
