None of the trade scenarios I’ve read so far in the thread make any sense for Marner. We’re not dealing with Chiarelli here.  And we no longer have Hard Bargain Hexy in charge. 

 

The current braintrusts - Dubas vs Fletch - does not tip in our favour. 

 

If a deal happens, be prepared to initially shake your head. 

 

If we get Marner, we won’t like what goes the other way.

Without a doubt you are quite accurate here.  I can't help but agree.

 

That said, get off my cloud!  LOL

Lol sorry buddy! It is nice up there in the clouds :)

 

It could very well be a great hockey trade but we probably won’t like it. 

 

Johansen for Jones was a good hockey trade. Nashville had a top caliber blueline already and Columbus got a great building block at the expense of a high quality forward. 

 

Sanheim for Marner or even Provorov for Marner would be completely fair. But we’d go bonkers lol. 

 

Marner is much better than Johansen, and Jones is better than Provorov and Sanheim.

I wouldn't make the move for Marner. $12 million to sink on one player plus the assets required to acquire him is massive. The one forward from Toronto that I'd love in Philadelphia would be Kasperi Kapanen and I think he could be had and it wouldn't cost Provorov or Sanheim. The question is, could the fan base live with giving up Gostisbehere or Meyers for him? I'd have no problems with Gostisbehere, especially because you know the brain trust isn't sold on Gostisbehere and that he's more than likely the odd man out.

 If you offer sheet for Kapanen,  Toronto cant afford to match and tie up $ they need for Marner, so all we have to give up are draft picks. If they wanted to work out a deal , instead of draft picks I wouldn't give them Meyers.

I'm with you on this. Love Kapanen. And yeah, if it took Ghost, so be it.

Yeah, I'm not giving up Myers. Could be arguably fair price for Kapanen, but I'm not doing it.

I think the Flyers should see what Brock Nelson wants in a deal...

 

....i think he would be a good start some of the other may want to much. He can play center or LW.

 

Nelson could too. Isles may not let him leave.

Ha ha , thanks. I have no problem negotiating with Toronto, we can say were gonna offer sheet Kapenan, do you want to work out a deal? But they are in no position to control negotiations,  so we will be the ones to dictate the terms. I'm not saying we will rip them off, but I would rather give them a player or our 2020 pick rather than the 11th pick or Meyers.

i'll deal with the oilers to pry rnh away and maybe pry darnell nurse or adam larsson away, if holland accepts the job, he'll want to give away youth.

Ghost put up more points in 2017-2018 than Kapanen has in his career. Almost did it in his rookie season. Even on an admittedly down season, he only had 7 fewer points than Kapanen. As a defenseman. I'm just saying. Offer sheet him at 4.2 million for 5 years. I'll gladly give up a second for him.

Let me follow up on that with: Hell, sign Johnsson to one too. One at 4.2 (top of the 2nd round pick compensation) and the other for 4.5 or something (1st and 3rd). You're basically assured of getting one, as Toronto only has ~17 million in off-season cap space to work with, and even less actual cap space once the season starts. 

 

If you want to play nice, offer to take the last year of Marleau off their hands for the price of one of the two. There should be no reason to trade anything of significant value to get what you want from Toronto.

I'll add one more piece around Kapanen (whom I love as a player): You are essentially trading for a 3rd line RW. Konecny is younger and has outproduced Kapanen. He's not come anywhere Voracek's production. That needs to be taken into consideration as well when evaluating the price you are paying to get him.

Kapanen at 22 is essentially where Voracek was at 22.

 

At that point in his career Voracek hadn't come anywhere near to "Voracek"'s production, either...

 

And Voracek wouldn't outpace "Ghost"'s production - shortened season excepted - for 2-3 more years.

Exactly. 

 

I'm not trying to compare Kapanen to either Jake or Konecny, but the potential is there. 

 

I don't know. I'd definitely consider trading Ghost (a 3rd pair, pp specialist dman) for Kapanen.  His numbers this year were comparable to Konecny's and his role was odd.  I don't think I'd just think about it. I think I'd do it.

I can't say I know too much about Kapanen. I haven't watched him much, nor have I heard much about him. So it's hard for me to say.

 

I will say this though, if Ghost is involved, we better be getting a top six guy back. He's worth that much in this league. If we trade for someone who caps out on the third and fourth line, it'll mean we've likely lost the deal.

 

I don't dislike trading Ghost mind you. I've mentioned it here before. I don't know that I'd shop him around mind you. I'm pretty worried Fletch is going to undersell him in the off season actually. I'm not very trusting of Fletch's trade savvy.

I do like Andrea's Johnson a lot. Kid is just 24 and is very fast.

 

If Oskar can get to where he is at I will be happy he won't ever skate as well as he does but he is bigger though.

Exactly this. I want a surefire top 6 player in return for Ghost (or Ghost+). 

 

We have enough middle six guys.

It has to be a a awesome return before I just give up on him.

 

His contract is very team friendly.

Defensemen who put up 65 points don't grow on trees....let's not be so quick to Justin William's or Patrick Sharp the guy.

That's the thing. Trading Ghost doesn't have to mean the organization "gave up" on him. You can have smart hockey trades that are just smart hockey trades. It's not always about being down on a player.

      @ruxpin   I have zero faith in anyone in the decision making chain in this organization.     I could see nothing of consequence happening or everything happening, I don't feel like this group is going to get whatever they do right.  So one or two moves and a coaching change is 3 chances to miss. I almost like their chances throwing things at the wall better than I do the couple of shrewd moves.  My impression of the front office is Kramer and Newman making sausage.

      Give me Stralman, move Hagg, McDonald and if they decide to move Ghost, it best be for one hell of a good player or package of picks.   As for the kids, I don't think we'll see Frost or Farabee start with the Flyers. Gut feeling is that they're going to get the Giroux treatment via the AHL. Let them dominate down there.

      Right. But right now he'd be on your third line. Maybe he becomes Voracek in 2-3 years, and that would be great. Let's remember that the Flyers traded Jeff Carter (admittedly more valuable at the time than Ghost, but that gap is pretty close in the modern NHL) for a young Voracek, with a better NHL pedigree at the time, who projected to the Flyers 2nd line, AND a first (Sean Couturier). The fact is that when it comes to positions of value, Center and Defense >>>>>>>>>&

      This quote says to me "The Hextall Plan Was Working"     I think this was always the off-season Hextall was looking towards.   Too bad he was too tough on the corporate suits. Oh, and, also, too, wouldn't fire Hackstol.
