WOW. Didn't see that coming. I would never have thought that Peter Nedved is Flyers material. He is rather too soft. Oh well, this season is full of surprises.

do we get future considerations because for the Coyotes this sounds like a salary dump?

I swear that Clarke must read this board.

Yesterday someone, I can't remember who, was talking about the Flyers need for the 2nd line forwards. This really is a brilliant deal if it's Seidenberg for Nedved. Either Nedved or Handzus can slide into a 2nd line wing spot and I wouldn't be too surprised to see Nedved playing with Carter either.

Kudos to Bobby on a very, very nice move.

EDIT: The only potential problem I see is that Nedved does have a 3 year deal with two years left and he is 34.

After watching that debacle last night, the wings/forwards need an upgrade. Sounds good.

Hmmm... I was under the impression that Seidenberg was a solid young dman and that Nedved has ZERO trade value because he is overpayed and truly does suck at hockey.

But whatever floats Clarke's boat I guess..

I'd say it might also be a problem that he only has two goals this season.

Seidenberg is worse than Therian. We have Pitkanen and Desjardins coming back (Pitkanen back tomorrow, Desjardins coming back in a week+). Freddy Meyer has been playing very well after coming up from the AHL, along with Randy Jones.

We now have Johnnson, Pitkanen, Jones, Meyer, Desjardins, Hatcher, Rathje, and Therian.

Jones could be sent down, and Therian benched for a depth position.

Nice trade, we get rid of Seidenberg and pick up a forward with soft hands and a proven scoring touch, It seems they are pretty sure about Pitkanen and DeJardins if they are ready to offload a defenceman. One thing you can't argue with, Clarkie has never been shy about spending Ed Snyder's money. If you don't think that's worth something, ask Bruins fans.

If I was Clarkie, I'd have taken a roll of tape and a bag of warm-up pucks for Dennis Seidenberg. I think this is something of a clue about Primeau's return (or lack thereof) though. The million or so left on Nedved's contract is coming from somewhere,

By the way, has anyone EVER seen Clarkie lose 3 or 4 in a row and not respond with a trade?

The team's gotta be damn close to the cap now. IF and that is a huge if, Primeau comes back would they not be over the cap? Let us hope this isn't some sort of trade made in fear that Forsberg is going to be out a long time.

He has 2 more years at a lot of money. Time will tell but I never was a big fan of Nedved. Very soft. But then Dennis was going no where here so that was no big loss.

Nedved's signed for this season and 06/07 nothing else, he signed a 3 year contract in the summer of 2004.



And this should speaks volumes about Primeaus injury situation.

I should also add, though this seems like a nice trade right now, does this not completely remove us from any chance of picking up Weight or another better forward? It could tie Clarke's hands at the trade deadline.

Of course, but Nedved is a top-6 forward something which most of us have been asking for the entire season. Weight would be preferable but he would also come at a MUCH higher price.


I think there is still rome for a veteran (Carney, Weinrich) d-man and another forward (Sillinger, Ricci).

I would think so unless he flips Nedved to another team in 3 weeks(with Clarke a strong possibility). I donít mind the move just donít understand it as it seems there are better players out there to be had. Maybe the cost of those players is very high as I am sure Clarke did his due diligence. No go get a us a friggin Dman who will solidfy the 6th spot and donít make me cringe every time I see Meyer or Jones or Therian.

I'm not sure if I like the trade or not.

On one hand, it doesn't look like Seidenberg was going to get much/any icetime with the return of Desjardins and Pitkanen.

On the other hand, Nedved is not the prototypical Philadelphia Flyer forward. He hasn't had a very productive season since the 02-03 season (58 points), is well past his prime and makes a lot of money for 2 seasons.

If both players made similar salaries, I would say it's a "garbage for garbage" trade, but it seems to me that this trade prohibits what the Flyers can do the rest of this season and with off-season free agent signings.

BTW, doesn't it seem like over half of the Flyers trades as of late are with the Coyotes?

I really don't mind this deal. Nedved can be soft, but he also has good hands and let's face it, nobody in Phoenix was really lighting it up this year besides maybe Doan and his uber-streakiness.
This gives the Flyers a bona fide 2nd line scoring/playmaking centre and takes some pressure off Richards and Carter to provide secondary scoring. Maybe put Knuble on a line with Nedved because Mikey's tailed off a bit since a hot start and he can open up some more room for Nedved to move around with the puck.

As for Primeau coming back/not coming back... I think this move does speak a little bit about the situation. If moved to the IR, Primeau's salary comes off the books and frees up a little bit more cap space to add a 5/6 blueliner and/or a bottom 6 winger a la Sillinger.

Still not a huge fan of the Savage signing as he isn't producing at all and he's still taking up valuable PP time from guys like Carter & Richards. Best-case scenario we can clear his salary off the books much in the way they did with Hack-job a couple years ago... "Here you go Brian, one dose of vertigo and voila, your contract disappears." Waiving Therien would definitely be a good move too (with Joni and Rico slated to return soon and Meyer and Jones playing pretty respectably)... at least banish him to the AHL. If he has a two-way contract, it'll count for less in the "A" than it would here. Eager needs to come back up too, I don't think the Flyers have won since he was demoted back to the Phantoms.
