  1. I for one am glad that Fletcher didn't trade Simmonds to Toronto or Montreal because I can't stand either team or their fanbases. I wonder if Fletcher was asking too much and Poile just waited before the deadline to make him an offer probably knowing that Fletcher put himself into a corner and needed to make a trade to show the fanbase that he was able to trade Simmonds. If Fletcher has a plan, he hasn't shown it yet so this summer will be interesting. I hope Simmonds ends up winning a cup in Nashville because Poile has built a contending team thru the draft and smart trades and it would be nice to see them win. I'll be surprised to see Simmonds get a 3 year deal this summer let alone a 5 year deal, the GM's aren't handing them out like they use to when it comes to over 30 year old players.
  2. As much as liked Simmonds as a Flyer, if he was asking for a 5 year deal then I'd say thanks but no thanks and move on. It sounds like a deal was in place with Calgary but Simmonds wouldn't waive his no-trade clause.
  3. If Fletcher doesn't trade Simmonds then he's a freakin idiot!
  4. Maybe but as long as Simmonds doesn't get traded to Toronto, I can't stand Toronto!
  5. I'm starting to think that the Flyers might not get a 1st rounder for Simmonds unless there becomes a bidding war from teams in the same division who don't want him going to the other team. The Flyers might end up getting a conditional 1st rounder or a 2nd rounder for him with a prospect. I'm still hoping for a 1st but they definitely got to trade him before the deadline because I don't see him resigning to a reasonable contract.
  6. The rumours of a Talbot-Elliott trade could be possible with maybe a draft pick coming the Flyers way? As for McDud, if the Flyers retained 50% of his cap hit this year and next maybe there would be a taker. And I might have misread or misunderstood someone on a sports talk show but they were saying that Stolarz has to play 16 more games in order for the Flyers to retain his RFA rights otherwise he becomes a UFA at year-end, so maybe he's on the block too?
  7. Here's my list for players Fletcher should trade at the deadline and players that could be traded: Definitely trade: Simmonds Raffl Elliott Neuvrith MacDonald--retain partial caphit this year and next Possible trade bait if the right deal comes along: Gudas---it would have to be something that Fletcher couldn't refuse Ghost????
  8. Well since teams always seem to look for depth defensemen at the deadline, maybe Fletcher could trade MacDonald while retaining 50% of his cap hit for this year and next.
  9. I agree the Flyers have to get rid of Simmonds for picks. And maybe Gudas if they get a deal with they can't resist. I hope that Fletcher doesn't think that this 7 game winning streak changes the way Fletcher should approach the trade deadline.
  10. Let's hope the Flyers don't finish dead last but win the lottery to draft 1st overall, that will make up for 2007!
  11. Thanks for the insight, Fletcher sounds a lot like a former Flyers GM and current team president, Paul Holmgren! I hope Fletcher learned from his mistakes in Minnesota and doesn't trade away youth for quick fixes!
  12. Lol, people tell me I have a bad habit of saying the obvious. I agree we need finishers on this team like a Tim Kerr, Brian Propp or John LeClair. Fletcher has to use this time up to the trade deadline to determine who are the Flyers core players going forward and trade off the rest that aren't. Reload in the summer and see what happens but get a goalie who can be the stop gap until Carter Hart is ready to take the reigns (Hextall's choice of Brian Elliot was a head scratcher!)
  13. Provorov reminds me of Mark Howe when he first got to the Flyers, I know he was older than what Provorov is but when he got paired with Brad McCrimmon then he really took off as a defenseman. Fletcher has to trade or sign a veteran defenseman who can play with Provorov. Right now Provorov is trying to put the team on his shoulders and it's affecting his play. I agree that Sanheim is coming into his own so if there is a trade for Ghost that benefits the Flyers then it's something Fletcher should consider. If the Flyers end up last overall in the league I'm hoping that we don't have a repeat of the 2007 draft when we lost out on Patrick Kane.
  14. I'd rather the Flyers **** the bed for the rest of this year, trade pending UFA's for picks and prospects and get the highest pick they can. Hopefully draft someone with great potential with the high pick and sign some free agents that will help the young guys that they have. Unfortunately, I don't see Hughes as a franchise player like McDavid and Matthews but he would help. Being a board line playoff team isn't fun unless your team does a miracle run like the Kings did in 2012. Hart is a couple of years away from taking the reins, at that time Provorov and some of their other young players will be coming into their own. Fletcher was the GM of Minnesota, what did you think of him?
  15. There's part of the problem right there, Hakstol keeps playing MacDonald over 20 minutes a game instead of lowering his minutes and playing the young D like Sanheim more. If the Flyers are going to keep losing they might as well play the young players instead of the vets.
