with this new news from Gillis I believe it's the Flyers, they've had goaltending issues forever and Bryzgalov has not worked out at all for them, you know what your getting with Luongo and they would love him there... I could see Toronto taking on Bryzgalov, his price would be very low/next to nothing and it gives them an experience vet to push Reimer, DN said they believe in Reimer but need experience. Maybe something like Luongo and Raymond for Voracek, a young, big, top 6 right winger. That trade really makes a ton of sense for both teams, Flyers NEED a goalie, they wont go anywhere without one and their sooo deep with scoring forwards, this would help their cap a tiny bit too as they dump almost 10 million with Bryzgalov and Voracek and take on about 8 million.
Also, The Sabres do make some sense with the Miller problem they had last season, Miller isn't a long term option for the Sabres as he wants to be closer to his wife in Cali, Sharks really could use a goalie like Miller. I could see Stafford and 2013 1st for Luongo and Raymond, Stafford is a big right side winger... I'm not really high on Stafford though but I don't see what else they can give up?... maybe Cody Hodgson now that would be awkward press conference.
Personally I think all sign point to the Flyers, it would be a deal that makes a lot on sense for both teams and help both teams now and in the future.
Voracek is great, but he can be kinda butter fingers. He has the ability to get it done, and has good vision, good speed... but he is kind of one of those guys who has the puck bounce on them at the wrong time, or doesn't quite recieve the pass cleanly and has to settle it first.
We have enough guys with above average hockey skillsets, we need a game changer. Luongo is a game changer. Voracek is a great 2nd line winger, but is not a game changer.
Guys like Zheredev may get half the points and be invisible/a liability much of the time they're on the ice... but they're game changers. He has the ability to make something out of nothing. His point totals change with ice time and touches, not linemates. Voracek would need that finess guy... Booth and Kesler are not that.
If we trade Luongo for Voracek straight up, we do not win the trade. Add in Raymond and we're looking mad silly.
Luongo and Malhotra for Voracek and Talbot would be better IMO.
Simmonds at least hits hard, is a right handed shot, and IMO works harder than Voracek with similar points totals. If we're going for the team guy, i'd rather SImmonds.
