If Gaudreau is interested in taking a discount to play for a team that probably won't win a cup why doesn't he just come here for more money?

Because he grew up in South Jersey as a Flyers fan. I mean it’s happened how many times?

He can always buy a Flyers jersey on ebay

Probably a couple with his salary. But we have seen how many guys do the “home team” thing? You asked why he wouldn’t come here for more money, if he doesn’t that’s probably why.

If they get him I think it will be a rather friendly deal, like most here were saying. At the same time, I am not sure JG is what they need. What they need is likely a real rebuild. I don't think JG moves the needle much further for them then maybe a bubble team.

You're rebuilding you don't sign JG to a massive deal. They're prospect pool sucks to, gun watching Fletcher do whatever he wants cause clearly the Ownership group doesn't care

Yeah you add him to an existing young base (or an established one that need that one last piece).  You don’t sign a 29-year-old to mega bucks and then try to build around him.

I heard some folks say Tkachuk( however it's spelt) might want out if and when JG leaves. I'd give him that deal easily as he's much younger and better. That's a true pipe dream though

The Devils have a strong prospect pool.  Where do you get that the idea that it sucks? They have potential future stars and depth players.  They even bought out Kouk to make roster space.  They if there is an area of weakness, it is at the goalie position, but that isn’t even from a lack of trying.  The flyers are further away from competing.

I can’t promise I won’t say “bless you” every time someone posts “Tkachuk”.

Bless you is stupid. You should say “you’re soooo good looking”

Compensation would be insane.

Would almost certainly have to be a sign-and-trade, or Calgary would have to allow us to negotiate an extension before the trade takes place.

They are consistently rank high for their prospect pool.  They have Luke, Holtz and, now, Nemec that are project as high end prospects.  Mercer will be a regular NHLer and they are deep with talent to be future NHLers.  Why do you say it sucks?

Oooohhhh, ok.  Sorry.  I’m misreading it.  Excuse me, I’m at work and trying to keep up.  I’m very anxious about the upcoming free agent frenzy.

Flip Gundersson?

He’s a somewhat well respected goalie prospect. Had a good run two years ago in 9 games, last season he looked like he belonged on our team.

Renaud Lavoie reported that MTL made a trade on draft day but that it hasnt been reported yet. We don't know who/what it is though.

I think Petry makes sense cause he has some signing bonuses involved in his contract so maybe its a way around that. I know there was rumours about petry to carolina

Jeff Petry is the very definition of a late bloomer
