Kubina to Philly

47 posts in this topic

see, now i think getting Grossman and Kubina are great moves for the Flyers. they dont really give that much and they just added two guys that stand at 6'4" with Grossman at 230lbs and Kubina at 258. the flyers basically just got huge

I'm not blown away by this deal. I suppose this and Grossman improve the flyers but they still have questionable goaltending and are as much a crapshoot as everyone besides NYR and BOS out of the East.

yea but getting huge on defense is just about the best thing they could have done to help that goals against category

Being big isn't as important as being positionally sound and quick. I could argue Andy Greene is just about as good as these guys and he's a might on ice in comparison.

Per NBC10 in Philly: "Just reported on NBC10/phila that flyers trying hard 2 make trade w columbus 4 Rick Nash. Would trade Van riemsdyk and bobrovsky and player"

Holmgren is living his NHL 12 dream. I heard another package was Couturier, JVR, and Schenn. I'd do that for Zach lol.

Philly getting Nash for JVR, Bob, and one of schenn or couturier would be fine w/ me. Does not make them better and their summer cap is a mess b//c Pronger is a part of it. I wa hoping the rangers tore themselves apart to get him bit Philly is fine too.

Lou needs to get in on that and offer up ZP.

if it gets part of their future out the door, it hurts them in the long run.

Well hopefully Kubina is slow. Will he be effective or just be a slow big body? We'll see. :D

if philly really wanted nash and i was the jackets GM i'd ask for JVR, Bobs, 1st, ++ or Giroux dare I say?

WTF is Homer doing down there? sh!t, at this point he seems to just be making trades for the hell of it.. Plus he is dealing a lot of picks which hopefully sets them up for 10 years of phailure

Looking back we got Kovy for such little. Oduya is really nothing huge now. Bergfors is in Europe? Cormier isn't any breakout player just yet and the 2nd rounders were just merely flipped.

+1, Nash-Giroux would suck for a playoff series. It really would.

The last thing that they need is more scoring.. They are #1 in scoring in the NHL, so unless Homer feels that 7+ goals a game is the only way to overcome Bryz's mediocrity, then why the hell would they trade some of their future for Nash?

What happens now that they are about 2 million OVER the cap??

Forfeit games until they are under the cap?

If the Flyers get Nash, they will have significantly upgraded their offense since ridding themselves of Richards and Carter and thus will have shown they may have had a plan all along. Nothing makes up for signing Bryz of course.

Their goaltending is back to where it always was really, 2 goalies to equal one. Injury issues, Brzy gives them no salary flexibility and Both Grossman and Kubina are UFA's at seasons end.

They're only like 150k over the cap once you take their LTIR into account, so they'll just send a guy down, I imagine.
