Christ, you must be exhausted from patting yourself on the back. Best go to bed. 

Ghost is going to go to the desert and he'll play top 4 minutes. He'll be what he is a sometimes dynamic offensive-minded defensman who can change momentum with his play. He'll contribute to whatever that team does. He's a solid citizen and pretty good hockey player. I hope he does well, when he was here and healthy he was fun to watch.    I see @SCFlyguy cackling about how he's so smart and all the players suck and maybe some other obnoxious takes too.  I hope he's enjoying stopped cl

I agree, but you and I are in the minority it appears. People keep raising the point that he was put on waivers and people passed, but that's a different context in which teams often have very limited room to maneuver. The truth is Ghost has a unique set of hockey skills that have intrinsic value. What the market, at any given point, values is a different thing. And it's what matters sadly.    

Flyers give up two picks to send Gostisbehere to Coyotes

The Philadelphia Flyers traded Shayne Gostisbehere, a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday to clear cap space.

The Philadelphia Flyers traded Shayne Gostisbehere, a second-round pick and a seventh-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes on Thursday to clear cap space.

Gostisbehere has two years left on his deal with a cap hit of $4.5 million per season. The trade leaves the Flyers with 13.9 million in cap space this off-season with 16 players currently under contract, per CapFriendly.

The 28-year-old has spent his entire seven-year NHL career with the Flyers, scoring nine goals and adding 11 assists in 41 games last season. His best season came in 2017-18 when he tallied 13 goals and 65 points in 78 games.

More to come.

I said this in the shout box.

This is the market, it's not great for the team, but if changes are to be made then cap space is necessary. 

Now there's some space. Let's hope more things happen. 

It's weird that cap space is more valuable than players and picks right now.

We live in a weird time.

kind of sucks losing a second, but that’s the price for offloading bad contracts. He clearly didn’t have much for trade value, or he would have been traded some time ago. Seems fine to me. 

 

Now, if Fletch can’t get decent return for Voracek, that’s a different story....

Our management totally blows.

 

I mean maybe, but i wouldn’t use this as an example for that. What did you think they could get for a guy who had a couple good seasons way back and then a bunch of bad to awful after that. Truth is, Ghost had less than no value, he had minus value. We needed cap space, and we got it.

 

I’m not sold on Fletch any more than you are, but this isn’t mismanagement imo. This is pretty much what we should have expected. It was this or a buyout, and Fletch decided we needed cap space more than a 2nd round pick. That may prove to be wrong in the long run, but It’s not egregious from where we’re sitting right now.

Two picks?  Ill never understand the issue with ghost.  I liked him and would have kept

 

I don't like paying to give the player away. Getting $4.5M in cap space is "nice" but getting, say, $7M or $8.25M in cap space would be "better" and I'd rather have used assets to accomplish that than this.

 

With the proviso that there could very well still be shoes to drop.

 

Or there better be...

 Our management (not counting Hextall) has thought 2nd round picks are complete garbage for 3 decades. This isn't a Fletcher thing, it's a Flyers thing. Ok, it's a Fletcher thing too.

 

 Meanwhile Shea Weber/Patrice Bergeron/Duncan Keith/David Krecji/Paul Stastny/Roman Josi/Milan Lucic/PK Subban/ Ryan O'Reilly/Nikita Kucherov/ Sebastion Aho/ Alex Debrincat and many many many more were selected by other teams with 2nd round picks. 

 

Our management is about as competent as this asshat...

Can't wait to see what he does with his cap space! Does he seriously think he's a player or 2 away from a cup run. This is more of the Flyer M>O>. The drive towards mediocrity. Sneak in the playoffs, count receipts, suck for another decade. It's a sad sad situation when you can't even give away your high priced talent.

How is this called a trade? Aren’t we supposed to get something in return?

I was going to list Hart, and as I said there are many, many, many others. Hart just hasn't quite had the career (yet) of the guys I mentioned. But is still the best hope of a drafted/developed goalie the Flyers have had in decades. 

 

But who needs 2nd rounders, right?
