First I have to say this trade is for an excellent player that suffers from inury problems and in his last year of his contract. That being said...we can offer these players...
brendan morrison thrives with good players and playing along side Gagne would work. he is a fast playmaking centre who backchecks great and plays with heart. He rarely misses games due to injury unlike forsberg. Also, the addition of cooke could open up space for 2nd and 3rd line players and provides a fast,skilled but slightly overpaid pest who is great in the clutch. He also adds hitting to the flyers and is a valuable asset for any team. In addition adding luc bourdon a blue chip prospect would be huge for a rebuilding team like the Flyers and he could become a great player in the years to come.
This would also benefit the canucks. The canucks lose a great centre, energizing player and their top blue chip prospect but do gain a legitimate top tier centre. This would provide the Canucks with more balanced scoring...
forsberg,naslund and bulis?
sedins and pyatt
good trade for both teams...what you think??
okay....i didnt see this proposal but what you want from the Canucks that is reasonable and fair to get forsberg?
Bourdon and a 1st at least. If you take a look at all the rental trades last year - Roloson, Weight, Witt, they all got at least a 1st round pick.
I would also want a forward off the roster but I'm not sure who, as long as it's not Cooke or Morrison. I'm so tired of seeing Morrison's name in all these proposals. If him and Cooke would stop being the centre of every deal coming out of Canucks fans' mouths, I might be interested. But when you see so many fans so willing to trade 2 specific players, there's obviously a reason.
No thanks to Morrison, Cooke maybe if it came with Bourdon and a 1st.
Seeing as the major issue with the flyers is with defense, that'd be a good place to start. That said, I doubt very much the Nucks would be willing to part with what it would take, ie Ohlund or Salo & Bourdon.
We'd want young players or prospects. Hence us being a semi rebuilding team
yea i agree. we would ned some people to play now and some that will be good in a few years. i think that is decent deal but that the flyers may be ablr to get better at the deadline. if foppa waives his NTC the flyers would trade him to a team that he would want to go so that may limit the deadline overpayment idea...
