None of that even matters, he is up now...Patrick should have been sent back to juniors anyways instead of being rushed...and Frost didn't have the luxury of being the number 2 overall pick.

 

And it doesn't matter now Frost will be gunning for a center spot...so Patty better pick up the pace...or he could get passed over soon.

 

And who cares what he would do on the Soo??

 

 

 

 Well, its the only thing we have of frost to compare with isnt it, considering he cant make the team. The point is pretty self explanatory, Patrick is heads and tails better. He got 102 point in junior in 2015/16, now has two nhl seasons complete while frost is still playing in the soo and hasnt had a sniff.

 If patrick was on the soo, Frost would be behind him in the depth chart. If patrick was on the soo, Frost would be behind him in the scoring.  I know it, you know it and the flyers know it. Just me and the flyers admit it. If he was good enough, he would be there. 

 I like how every month goes by the expectations on frost changes. He went from the future top/second line center to maybe a third line center. He is a good junior player, may never be an nhl player but thats okay. He is what he is.

Let's hope.

 

Honestly, if they could have gotten Marleau and a 1st for a 6th I probably would have preferred that for a year...

 

Well, now they can sign him for $7mm for 7 years and not have to give up that imortant 6th rounder.  :NinjaLookLeftRight1:

Its a bad signing, pure and simple. He is not coming into his prime, he is going out of his prime. The entire league is getting younger, (or people are just noticing that its always been young). Yet here the flyers are signing guys long term into their 30's for big money. Its ridiculous.

 

 They are STILL chasing the Schenn trade(who just happened to win a cup as a top 6 center for the 5.2 mil salary cap hit that hextall traded him during). Oh, and they have him for that next year too. Then they will probably let someone else overpay for him into his 30's and he will start a steady decline. Its a pattern.

 

 You have to get guys that are young and let them go when they get to 28 or so when they demand term and money. You only do that for very exceptional players. Look at pittsburg, their money goes to top players and they spread the rest around to younger, faster, cheaper guys wherever they can. Guenztel is a cap hit of 6 mil a year and is 24 signed till he is 28 or 29 and then they will probably walk way and let someone else over pay for him. And he will get a huge contract from some team and it will handcuff them for years while they watch a guy decline.

 

 Its always been a young players league. Bruins never regretted not signing Lucic, they knew they already got his best years.

 

  You know what a guy is before he is 25, and you likely have seen his best years by then and if not, you have before he is 27 or 28. Just look at all the stars through the years and their best years and what age they were, you might be shocked at what you see. Age is just one aspect, I get that, but its still interesting that most stars have their very best years when they are very young. Its different for dmen probably but even active players you can look at their stats and their best years and most come very young, first few seasons.

 

 gretzkys very best year he was 24
 Orrs very best year he was 22
 Lemieux best year he was 23
 Jagr very best year he was 24
 bossy best year he was 24
 Ovechkins best year he was 22
 Lafleurs best he was 25
 yzermans best season he was 23
 My best year I was 8

Unfortunately, most of the GMs in the league haven't clued into it yet. Every summer, they hand out way too much money for way too little in return for players who are too old, and then they complain far and wide that the salary cap is ruining hockey. You can hardly blame them, after all. They've ONLY had 15 years to get used to this. It's not fair to expect too much.    /s

I agree with nearly everything in your post, but this. 

 

Schenn wasn't that guy here. We had years to see what he was and he didn't wake up in time. I don't know why the player has been better in St Louis than he was here; most likely more dynamic/better  line mates, possibly letting him play center and leaving him alone. When he was here was a good player, never great, I always thought there should be more from him.  Schenn wasn't a difference maker here let alone the difference maker.  I'll take 2 # 1 picks for him every time. 

 

You could be right about Frost, though I feel comfortable with the Flyers scouting, they've been pretty good at making the top pick count.

They did swing for the fences with O'Brien, whom I  like, but he might be a bust. Kid can skate and has a great attitude, hopefully his health stays good so he can keep developing, when I've watched him on team USA (Gretsky/Hlinka) he has stood out.

What do you mean he "can't make the team?" He hasn't been given the option.   

 

And at 8 months younger than Patrick he was almost in the next year's draft. It's not really a good comparison at all. 

 

And truthfully, Patrick had no business being brought straight to the NHL. With all of Hextall's preaching about bringing people slowly and having them earn it, Patrick earned nothing and was thrown into a level well over his head and continues to suffer for it. 

 

It's not that Morgan Frost can't make the team (at 19 he couldn't and shouldn't). It's because he was younger than most in his draft class, has not been given the opportunity (because staying in junior was prudent) and - - unlike Patrick -- will have to earn it.  I mean, he JUST turned 20 a month and a half ago. He'd have been 18 the entire season had he come up with Patrick. Patrick was 19 before his rookie regular season started.

 

Sorry, it's simply a silly argument.

They saved no money with the schenn trade, lehtera cost about the same. They got out of one year, next year, and nobody would want out of one year at schenn for 5 million cap hit next year. Frost hasnt played a game, the other guy is gone isnt he?. 

 Schenn didnt do anything except score over 50 points three straight years and lead the league in power play goals tied with two guys, one named ovechkin and one named kucherov.  He was the center they are currently over paying trying to find. They had him and they let him go to draft a second round player in the first round for whatever reason.

 So what did the flyers get for schenn besides Frost and watching Lehtera skate around like he is on mushrooms? and what the odds Frost ever turns into what schenn already was? The flyers were the only ones, or one of the few, who seemed to have him ranked in the first round. He may end up being really good, I hope so, but that trade destroyed the team and started hextall on his way out.

  Hextall overvalued his prospects, he thought someone would step up and fill what schenn was doing and there was nobody there to do it. .

  Oh, I see, he has not been given the option to make the team.  If only they would have invited him to camp. This must be a misprint. And you call my argument silly. Ratcliffe may end up being the better player, who knows. I hope frost is good but another thing to remember is they didnt need that trade to get frost, he would have been there with the pick they used on ratcliffe.

So Frost is gonna get better but Patrick wont. Got it.

@csummers

You are right the Flyers are struggling to find a guy to produce in that second line range and I am not wild about watching Kevin Hayes until I retire in 25 years. I also understand that the Flyers just gave Schenn's level of production a 2million $ a year raise. I don't like it. I've said as much.

 

I think you are the only person who is still insisting the trade was Schenn for Jori Lehtera… conveniently ignoring 2 #1 picks, one of which was used on Morgan Frost, the other was used on Joel Farabee.  Farabee has skill beyond Schenn's- already- and I'm not thinking at 20 Frost won't get there either. He (Frost) did score a **** pile of points for the Soo and his plus one year stats compare favorably to Giroux's.

 

You continue to ignore what Brayden Schenn was and wasn't while he was a Flyer.

He was nothing special. He was not improving in a way which demanded he remain as a part of the core group. 

His line was consistently unable to clear the defensive zone and those guys didn't pin the opposition in their d zone often enough. He was so-so on the rush.  He was sheltered with his zone starts and his stats were aided by playing on the power play with Giroux. 

There was one year when Schenn represented scoring independent of Giroux that was the year I had high hopes for him. I defended him on this forum frequently. 

 

He was a 45/55 point a year guy- teams need those, he wasn't giving the appearance of taking another step while he played for the Flyers. You have to have seen that. Hindsight is 20/20, at the time Schenn was here he was middling and coasting, the trade woke him up. good for him.

Why did he have to take another step? They just paid a few million more for a 27 year old that has never done what schenn did three times before he was 25. And his pay was in line for what he was producing. Now they are paying 7 mil a year for a guy who has never came close to the steps schenn has already taken, and likely never will.

 

 If they have the future center in frost then why sign a plug for 7 years? they could have had Filpulla again last year for less than 3 million if they needed a placeholder.

 

 If frost ends up being good, good luck moving that contract.. 

 

 If Frost ends up being as good as schenn everyone will be okay with that. You need more than one or two centers. And I didnt forget about the picks for schenn, ive been talking about frost in this thread. Farabee could be good, who knows.   I had to remind others about Lehtera.

 

 If Hextall didnt make that trade, he would still be GM of flyers, the flyers would have made the playoffs, and St Louis wouldnt have a cup.

this is just me, I think schenn should have been pushing to be #1 C here and he wasn't close. 

I think if Hextall wouldn't have told Dave Scott to get the heck out of his office he'd still have a job. Hakstol was the reason Hextall lost his job. Not this trade. 

we'll agree to see this differently.

He didn't fit in Philly don't waste your time arguing with this know it all clown.

 

Flyers moved him I was and still am happy they moved him.

 

Farabee and Frost will be very very good players for the Flyers.

 

They may even surpass Patrick if he doesn't start showing consistent improvement.

 

 

Nice moves...and was a nice pick by the Flyers.

      So, we're back to..."Oh look...shiny!"    F*** me, over 7 mil a year for a 20..make that 19 goal scorer....for 7 f****** years...he did rack up THREE playoff points... while getting benched....Fletcher saves that 5th rounder!    the return of the son of Homer.   Does this mean we pay Provorov $14 Million a year?   Whens the buyout?   This is Bryz all over again...without the insane comic relief.    Holmgren signed some really dumb contracts.

      He absolutely is. If he wasn't, he wouldn't have gotten it. That's how markets work.    And Philly is not the only team that would have ponied it up.    Jeff Skinner, career high 63 points (with Eichel feeding him the puck), $9M Evander Kane, career high 57 points (7 years ago), $7M Ryan O'Reilly, career high 64 points at the time of signing, $7.5M Brock Nelson, career high 53 points, $6M JVR, career high 62 points, $7M   We don't have to like it

      Just to prove that I'm not a complete grumpy F|_|ck...   -This was definitely NOT a team building contract, but it is sort of in line with some of the other gross contracts out there. I think it was too much both in dollars and term, but if a team thinks they're in the Cup window, those are the sorts of deals they're willing to sign. -The Flyers are, this week, suddenly a very good team on paper, and should have money left to spend on their RFA contracts. -This series of move

      The team has been transformed,  it has been pretty expensive.     Like last year this should be a good team on paper even if nothing else happens.   I think 7 x 7 is too beaucoup for soul brotha...that said; we go Couturier,  Hayes, Patrick and Laughton down the middle...**** you little men, try and get the puck from us. Also, the Flyers got 3 players capable of playing quality pk minutes in this flurry of activity.  This team should be better, new veteran coaches,

      @elmatus   Imagine not playing 8 goaltenders last year and the big free agent signing didn't miss the first 2.5 months of the season from a freak injury.   Or imagine one of those 8 goalies proved to "not suck" for I don't know 3 months, do we still think last year's team was a dumpster fire?   I don't i think last year's team was as bad as they showed.  I also know Gudas' ceiling was reached and it wasn't very high, I know Macdonald was a passenger and not worth hi
