flyers-leafs blockbuster

Leafs: Mike Richards

Flyers: Nazem Kadri, Keith Aulie, Bos 1st, Leafs 2nd, cap space


Please don't yell at me flyers fans I know he's your captain and pretty much untouchable but this is a really nice package. I think Richards would be a great long term number one center for the leafs.

Actually, it's not such a great package.

The Flyers don't need Aulie, Kadri is a massive downgrade from Richards, and this is a weak draft. The Cap is going up and there are better ways to get more Cap space.

Thank you very much for the offer, but no thank you.

Leaf's fan here, and I wouldn't touch that.

Yes, it would be great to have Richards on our team.....but at the cost of our youth? I would prefer we kept Kadri and Aulie, and hope that 1st and 2nd turn into decent players.

Philly says: Ok you guys pay half up front... which is Nazem Kadri, Keith Aulie, Bos 1st and Leafs 2nd... what will you pay later as the second half?

Mike Richards has more of an impact by himself than all of those pieces combined will ever be, even if they hit their highest imaginable potential.

The cost of your youth? Richards is what, 26?

Where's my umbrella? I smell a ****-storm.

But seriously, the Flyers decline this in a second. They won't get rid of one of the best 2-way centres in the league for some prospects and a couple of picks. Think quality for quality. Start with Schenn and work from there. Even then, I bet the Flyers say no.

Wow. You do realize Richards is all of 25 right. This package doesn't even start a conversation about Richards

Terrible analogy.


Anyways, incredibly lopsided trade.

So a prospect whos absolute ceiling isn't as good as Richards, a good D man prospect, a late first (crapshoot), an early second (crapshoot), for a top 10 center/selke finalist, who is just reaching the prime of his career.

Seems fair.

Seeing how Burke has pulled off other lopsided trades, I don't see how this is impossible. This has everything a GM want. A roster player, a very good prospect, and draft picks. I am not saying this will happen but it is not as bad as people think.

Actually, yeah, it is that bad.

But the Flyers would happy to part with Dan Carcillo, Matt Walker, Jody Shelley, and a 3rd round pick for Luke Schenn. Sound fair?

Explain to me why Philly would trade their young stud first line/selke award finalist center for a "very good prospect and draft picks."
