A very solid depth center I was expecting.

 

Not exactly him but someone cheap to provide depth and guy who can kill penalties and is very very good at faceoffs.

 

I like this I have to say. Only a 5th.

 

Yes good move Chuckles.

And a guy who will stand up for his team mates.

 

 

Not afraid to take on the bigger guys.

Meh. 

 

Better than trading a 1st 2nd and 3rd for Pageau.

A nothing trade for a nothing player who will do nothing to help this team advance

 

Waste of time. At least they gave up NOTHING for him

They gave up the chance to draft another Lindblom in the 5th round.

 

That being said, I'm not too upset about this trade.  No term on the contract and it could have been worse.

Not liking either these trades. Pretty much ho-hum doesn't add much of anything. The Caps got more dangerous the Penguins got more dangerous. I would love to see them trade ghost to Toronto for kap

I agree the trade doesn't do much, but...The Caps and Pens are both at the "go for it" stages whereas the Flyers just aren't there yet.

Low risk, high reward. He (and Grant) bring physicality that this team needs, as we get closer to dare I say.... the playoffs. There, I said it. 🤪

’s contract is only for the 2019-20 season, so this is almost certainly a rental move for the club. The pick is for 2021, so this is a very no-risk move for the Flyers to make.

Many Flyers fans seem to underestimate Thompson. Great veteran, great faceoff and PK guy, gets you the important goals, blocks shots... He does all the small details that some teams are missing. Trust me, you won't regret that one.

These are solid depth moves that didn't cost much at all.

 

And they have options in the offseason they can still address and not block the youth.

      And now Derek Grant from the Ducks for a 4th.    Thompson is one dimensional, a defensive forward with little if any offensive ability, Grant however can score a bit and can play pretty much anywhere in the bottom six, winger or center. Big guy, plays big, loves to play the body, sneaky shot. Should be a god fit.

      We should never lose a faceoff again, and with God on our side, we should be unbeatable.

      Thompson, at 35, is far from the beast he used to be in his younger days, but he still plays a pretty good brand of physical hockey. I kept seeing many Flyers fans complain that the team was "too soft", and they they don't get "dirty enough" in the trenches, etc, etc... Well....here ya go. Thompson, along with Grant, will go a ways to address some of that, without being big liabilities on the ice. More importantly for Flyers fans, Thompson comes with a very reasonable price tag for the r
