Upshall's days with the Flyers are numbered. He is going to want to much cash and will be looking for a top 6 spot.

He could prob find that on another team.




Like the Panthers.

For what, being tied for 268th in the league in goals? Wait, you were kidding, weren't you?

Sportsnet says we're done with J-Bo, but have inside track on Morris. I don't see why we want him.

Sorry about the Carcillo trade, Upshall fans. God I hate Carcillo.

Getting Carcillo for Upshall doesn't bother me. It's the addition of a 2nd round pick that I just can't figure out. I keep checking to make sure that 2nd isn't coming back our way.

I really don't like that trade. The pick doesn't make sense.

What a ****ing awful trade.

Why did we give up the draft pick? Worst trade of the deadline, even worse than Chicago's trade.

I'm gonna miss Upshall so much, one of my favorite players.

That being said, I do like Carcillo a lot...he's a beastly fighter, and 10 times the fighter that Cote/Asham is. Is that our missing peice for the Stanley Cup? No. But I do think Carcillo has a lore more scoring upside than he has shown this year, and he could be a force sometime.

Don't understand why we gave up a 2nd though.

I hate Carcillo, I really hate that Upshall is gone, and I really don't understand why Homer would also give Phoenix a second rounder?!? This is a stupid move, it makes us worse instead of better and does nothing to remove some of the pressure the cap is putting on us.

The Flyers were big losers. They were better off doing nothing.

The Flyers just can't stand second rounders for whatever reason. I don't get it. It's a second round draft pick, not a second rate ***** or something. You don't get VD by keeping it around.

I really don't mind Carcillo. I just don't get where the hell he's going to play. You can't have Asham permanently on the third line. You can't have him dressed with Cote and Asham at the same time. He won't be able to keep up with Giroux and Briere. I just don't ****ing get it.

And for everyone saying Upshall is a dime a dozen third line player, consider this: he's the type of player an organization should hold on to, in order to keep some familiarity and consistency with the organization and fan base. In a trade like this, especially, it's a lateral move at best. Throw in the second rounder (does it really piss anyone else off that we don't have another one until 2012?) and it's a loss.

The only thing this does is allow us to carry more than 20 guys. I guess that part's a win, but somehow, we managed to downgrade our depth.

So ****ing aggravating.

Interesting that Eminger basically got dealt for nothing. Wasn't someone trying to convince me that Eminger was better than Carle the other day?

Of course, it was the Lightning doing the deal, so who knows what goes through their heads?

You beat me to it. It was the Lightning, and it can't be taken seriously.

I don't get it from a Florida perpective, either, though.

@ Sonny, FLA gets a decent puckmover for nothing basically making their D filthier than it was, also a possible replacement for J-Bouw.

Smart deal IMO.

Eminger's no more a candidate to replace Bouwmeester than Bouwmeester himself is. He's a free agent after this year.

And their d wasn't the problem, they needed more offensive scoring I thought. That's why I don't get it.

We lost a 2011 second and a 6th. We gained defensive depth that will stay in the AHL until the playoffs, if needed (judging by problems faced in our last 2 deep playoff runs, not a bad thing). We swapped Upshall for a bigger, stronger guy who has probably equal offensive upside.

So at very worst, I think we came out even.

Isn't Eminger an RFA though?

And FLA wasn't going to add Jokinen and the problem is that they really need a stud forward, I don't think someone like Moore was going to help them much because they already have a lot of 2nd/3rd line guys.
