      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

[Rumour] Philly Eyeing Burns

26 posts in this topic

Last week, Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren and director of hockey ops Chris Pryor created buzz in their native Minnesota by scouting both the WCHA's Final Five tournament and the Wild's home game against San Jose.

The Flyers' brass wanted a closer look at Brent Burns, among others.

Whether or not it's Burns the Flyers are truly targeting, it won't be at all surprising to see Holmgren go after a defenseman. The pending free-agent market isn't impressive.

When your biggest rival is making huge moves (Pittsburgh) and you're team is sitting 14th in the east you can't just "do nothing".

If I were Philly, I'd amnesty buy out Briere (Cap space + he refuses to waive his NMC) and Byrzgalov because he has been AWFUL! And trade Hartnell. Everyone except Timonen, Schenn, Schenn, Giroux, Voracek, Simmonds should be in play.

They should go through a rebuild. All of their key players (besides Timomen) are all young. Philadelphia has the chance to have a dynasty in the future but needs to act soon. Players like Coburn, Meszaros and Hartnell could all bring in a solid return.

I hope Phili gets him for a good deal. A more balance of power in the East helps us if we ever get to the SCF.

Well I guess this makes sense.... Philly is looking for a dman and Burns has been playing forward as of late, so obviously the Sharks don't really need him anymore. Philly could have a "get burned" pair lol Braydon Coburn and Brent Burns

Burns is a good Dman. I'd like him too but he's not gonna be enough for Philly to make a push. They will not come out of the East. They are way over matched.

Hmm, maybe it makes sense but the Sharks gave up so much to get him and they just signed him! Would they move Brent so quickly?

Alternatively, would they have an interest in someone like Giordano in Calgary or Regehr in Buffalo? Philly has some decent young forwards when they need D-men to hold down their own end, and the Flames need to rebuild from the ground up (the Sabres should be sellers too).

What's the point. Burns is not the answer to their problems.

If they finish 28th or something I wonder if they will go all out for Seth Jones. 3rd overall and Couturier for 1st overall or something like that. After seeing how Pronger helped them(and hurt them now that he's gone) that big #1 D could be appealing enough for them.

Burns is a big disappointment to SJ imo..

Turns out they got fairly taken in that deal.

Setoguchi hasn't lit the world on fire, but Charlie Coyle looks like a hell of a young center, and they threw in a 1st in that deal as well...

Haven't been impressed by Burns in the least in their matchups against the Canucks.

Anyhow, if Philly is looking for something, it should be the end of Bryzgalov.

Luo for Couturier and a 1st.

They need Brent Burns. I believe he is under rated. PHI needs another RH top d man because Schenn on the top pairing isn't cutting it. As much as I love Schenn, he is more suited for a 2nd/3rd pairing role.
