Mark Recchi

I heard that theres a possibility Recchi would be interested in again being a Flyer. However it would be contingent on Primeau returning this season(cap). I was wondering What everyone thinks it would take to land him and would the player(s) sent the other way + Prims gone even be worth it.

i think they would want Umberger, however i would not give him up b/c i think they could land Recchi for less. perhaps Seids and eager or a couple picks maybe a 2 and a 4. what do u think and is this rumor true?

no way that recchi at 37 years old will fetch umberger, especially with how he has played this year. I think Eager and Seids would be a better package, though i think that Eager would be a tough loss because i like him and i think he brings a spark to the team. in my honest opinion i wouldnt give up more than Seidenberg and a pick for him being pitt is looking for D men and looking to shed fowards

Why would we do anything to help out the Pens? They made some of the worst signings after the lockout and have nothing to show for it. I'm sure Bobby is perfectly content watching a divisional rival slip in their ****, that is unless they want to seriously overpay for one of our players.

Recchi is not what this team needs. Will he help, probably but he is not the difference between the Flyers getting or not getting to the Cup. Try to get a better scorer. If you can't then all I would give up is a 4th rd pick. I believe he is under contract next year for over 2mm but it may be a team option. If he is guarenteed the 2mm then I want no parts of him. I do not even entertain the thought of trading any prospects. Eager is the type of player they lack and wouldn't give him up in that deal. There are better deal out there to be had. Plus he hasn't exactly doen to much in the playoffs lately for us anyway. As for acquiring another D man Carney/salie would be nice, Clarke has a relationship with Burke and that can't be discounted.

to be honest gentleman, as a pens fan i do not want eager or seidenberg, or any other of your dman. personally i want either carter, richards or umberger for recchi. but when it comes down to it, the decisions comes down to is (1) how much bobbi clark wants recchi and what he is offering is more then another team is offering for recchi. and recchi does not have an ntc. plus he has both a team and a palyer option for next year. if theteam excersisesd its option its for 2.25 mill, if recchi uses his option its 1 million after rollbacks. and (2) iswhat clarkie offering worth for patrick to give up recchi.

So Bobby Clarke gives up one of our promising forwards for a veteran who has one foot out the door. Mike Millbury wouldn't even do that trade.

Doesn't matter what you want as you have a better chance of seeing God than getting 1 of those 3 for Recchi or anyone else on the Pens outside of Crosby or Fleury(which would never happen). I can see how you wouldn't want any Flyers Dman seeing how good the Pesn defense is these days. Why would the Pens want Eager as well, he doesn't fit into the Pens soft style of play. My offer is this you get nothing and can keep Recchi or trade him to whoever is dumb enough to overpay for him.

Recchi would be nice - but not for the trade you showed. Seidenberg and a 3rd round pick is about max. At 37 I would have loved for him to finish his playing days here.

I miss Recchi.

But I miss Justin Williams more.

Recchi = not a defenseman.

Ergo, the Flyers have higher priorities.

That is absolutely ********. Carter, Richards, or Umberger for Recchi? How does that make sense even to a Pens fan?

As a Pens fan, I have no idea.


The Pens need defenders, the Flyers need defenders, therefore we're bad trading partners.

I doubt the Flyers would trade Umberger and the Pens shouldn't trade Rex just for the sake of trading him. He's been the only veteran who has been actually good this year.

Yeah, and I'd like to trade my car for a Porsche stuffed with a million dollars.

It's called a pipe dream.

Tony,

Thank you thank you thank you. I was having a really rough morning and needed a good laugh!

Clueless drunkard...
It's not like we need Recchi back, more like the Pens would be worshipping the ground Clarkie walked on if they could squeeze a 4th rounder out of Philly to take his salary off their hands.
I'd like to see Bobby land a solid #4-6 blueliner to knock Therien out of the starting 6.

I want a 3rd pairing d-man, too. Knock Therien down to 7th or 8th on the depth chart after Pitkanen and maybe Desjardins get back.

As long as we are not giving up a roster player I would love to have Recchi back as a 2nd line RW. He would actually be the perfect complement to Carter, Carter likes to shoot and Recchi is a playmaker and great passer. Handzus can move into Primeaus role if we have Recchi's scoring on he 2nd line. Dont forget he is playing on a crappy team, his numbers might look better here.

He may be playing on a bad team, but he is also playing on a line with Crosby and Palffy, so it's not as if he is playing with players with no talent.
