Flyers Trade Deadline Thread

IMHO, it has no legs because the 1st person that reported it was @hockeyyinsiderr.  For those not in the know, he's worse than Eklund.  Eklund at least puts his name on his stuff.  The other dude is an anonymous account.  

 

 

 

I hope I'm not the anonymous account. I'd have no problems attaching names, but last thing I want to do is out someone who can get in serious trouble for mentioning stuff like this. I know he's said that the scouting world is full of trade rumours and gossip and it's pretty easy to sort out the serious offers and from just chatter. When he heard the Flyers - Canadiens rumour, he laughed it off because he was talking with one of the Flyers scouts about it and that this rumour started from an overzealous radio program in Montreal and it took on a life of it's own. The rumour actually started out as pure speculation and then names started getting bandied about.

There is absolutely no reason to consider buying out Filppula this offseason. If you must exercise a buyout, you buyout MacDonald, because you will almost have to at some point before his contract expires anyway. Filppula is one more year. You can play him for that long. Tampa would have needed to buy him out not because of the NMC, but because they would have serious issues re-signing their young players this offseason. I'd say it's lazy reporting, but it's Seravelli,, which is synonymous.

I mentioned this to Rux in the shoutbox, but I think it has relevance here so I will repeat:   Valteri Filppula is still a pretty good player. He isn't a lock down 2C anymore like he was when TB first got him, but he can still play the position if needed, he will play 3C as well, and he has even adapted to playing wing on any line, including the 1st, too.   Now, his strengths may NOT necessarily match up with what the Flyers need, however. They are superb passing sk

better for this year ?  better for the long term ? Mark Streit's salary is off the books MDZ's salary is off the books, Mason, Neuvirth, Shultz and Gordon. If they do nothing and gain all that salary cap space...  i think they are/can be better. If a deal isn't awesome why make it ? I understand trying to an asset for those guys, but getting rid of those guys is also an asset of sorts too. Alas CBJ isn't going to trade us Brendan Saad for Andrew MacDonald...this is the s

Don't disagree.  But when these fringe outlets report this stuff, I tend to ignore it.  Lotsa of click bait anymore.

 

I mean it's all just entertainment value as far as I'm concerned.  More interesting than the actual season turned out to be.

 

I believed this team had a chance to make the playoffs too.  That didn't turn out to be so credible either.

I was looking at the lineup for tonight. Ugh. 

 

Our LWs are Weal, Cousins, Raffl, and Vandevelde. 19 goals between them. 

 

That's some weak sauce. 

 

It'll look much different when Lindblom and Rubtsov are on the roster.....:VeryCool:

Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Steve Mason, Michal Neuvirth, Mark Streit and Michael Del Zotto are getting interest.

“I’m prepared for anything,” Mason said, adding he wasn’t worrying about something he can’t control.

 

Defenseman Mark Streit is a free agent and is hoping he can stay past the deadline and come back next year.

 

Sam Carchidi: Pending UFA Michael Del Zotto hopes to re-sign with the Flyers and help mentor their young defensemen.

Trade Giroux, get number 1 pick or two prospects. 

 

Look Flyers will not be good next two years at least, so there is no reason to keep him and screw his career. He can win Cup with other team. 

Just let him go.

Note to fans going to hockey games: Buy cheap hats!

 

Hahahahaha...   I just said the same thing to the wife...  That was great and Jake and Wayne's reaction was hysterical.

 

This team needs a break and some personality makes it good to watch.

Two good prospects, yeah, it's possible. There isn't a snowball's chance in hell you're getting the #1 pick for Giroux.

I'm sure he just meant a first rounder. You'd better be able to get one of those for Giroux.

 

But they're not trading Giroux.

I am gonna be that guy... I would not sign either goalie and let the market at out.   I rather have Mason on a cheap deal if possible.    And I don't think it is far fetched...

I would get rid of both of them, unless I could keep Neuvy cheaply as a backup to Stolarz. I think Mason is going to want more money than we are willing to give him, or at least SHOULD be willing to give him.

Totally agree.... Although I think Mason is on for a ride awakening.   Goalie market this odd season is a bit iffy.

Get a 1st round pick for Giroux in one of the worst drafts in years? No thanks

YES! his .887 SA% and 5 soft goals in his last two games is just what the doctor ordered to turn this franchise around.
