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).

Hey Cryers,

Try eyeing a goalie replacement.

Sincerely,

The NHL is a fixed old boys club. I've come to acceptance with that and just watch for entertainment. The 2011 & 2012 Canucks are champs in my books. Go Canucks Go!

I think the craziest part is how much he looks like he ages between 2005 and 2006. He went from looking 15 to looking 25 in a year.

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.

Yeah, Schenn has difficulty with a small factor called skating.
Burns would probably improve Philly's blueline, and I think Holmgren is looking in the right place - SJ should start selling - their core is uninspiring, starting with their dolt of a captain.

Also, have you notice his hair went from dirty blonde to greasy brown...? It look like his hair wasn't dry and frizzy when he was younger..

I really wanted to do the evolution of Ryan Getzlaf, but I can't find any mugshot photos that is missing by certain year... :( I wonder how you acquire these?

They need defencemen. The Canucks have 9 NHL defencemen.
They have big centers. The Canucks need big centers.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it
