What's considered blowing up though? IF we're talking about moving Voracek and van Riemsdyk, there are numerous players who can fill their roles. For instance, if JVR is moved, there's still Giroux on the top left side, Lindblom can move along side Hayes and then Farabee fits in on the third line. That leaves the fourth line open, where Raffl remains. As for the right side, if Voracek is moved, Konecny slides into the top role, NAK moves into the 2nd line spot with Hayes, and then third line, yo
Have you read anything I've typed?
To clarify there are some guys that can be moved with 0 NMCs that can create nice cap space to sign younger guys or bring back a different middle six player.
Trading G & V is not doable Trading V might be . Trading JvR will be harder but again retain some salary and still clear 5m aav.
This isn't blowing a team up its continuing to build it.
I'm in the same boat as @mojo1917 and @BobbyClarkeFan16. I don't think there needs to be a major overhaul.
Moving JVR is a must in my mind. Regardless of the return. It was a stupid move from the 2nd beginning.
Moving Voracek for the right deal would be good also.
Thompson & Grant need to go also obviously.
Remember that having Patrick (who I believe will be back and is a top 6 player) and Lindblom back drastically changes this lineup without losing anybody.
yeah, I know he's a couple of years younger than Pronger when that happened but it's hard to want to ship a lot of salary out and then re- tie the cap up for years on a guy on the downslope of his career.
Right now he's a legit top 3 in the league player (with Hedman & Josi) at his position where will he be in 3 years?
I wouldn't be loving the scenario that makes him available to the Flyers, especially if AP falters or suffers some injuries and the casualties fro
