Hearing it might be Couterier for Clowe and Burns... this isn't bad for the flyers at all.... I would rather see Clowe in a Nucks uniform though

He said so himself... Kinda confusing

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

Yup; if a good D, who apparently has not worked out in SJ is included it looks like a good package. Philly still has Schenn who is the better young centre; trade from strength.

Plus negotiating in advance with Clowe.

Philly have a reputation as deal makers for a reason!

They would body up pretty good with Boston & have the more exciting scorers, if they could keep the puck out of the net...





:blush: Raymond and Ballard does not sound as exciting a rebuttal offer.

Hearing it might be Couterier for Clowe and Burns... this isn't bad for the flyers at all.... I would rather see Clowe in a Nucks uniform though

I want Boston to get FLEECED in a deal, and then Clowe to sign with us in the off-season for $900k/y for 5 years.

And then we trade Boston Booth for two first rounders and Ballard for Bergeron.

He is this year's Gaustad - majorly overated. If he's already having a bad season, what are the chances he suddenly picks up his game and plays great for his new team? Definately not worth a 1st, barely worth a 2nd and no one should throw any decent prospects away for him.

Last year's draft was weeeaaaak, all defenseman.. Something Nashville has too many of anyways.

Only to Aaron Ward!

What were the odds of Carter or Horton playing better for their new teams?

About the same as the odds that Clowe would.

Horton played solid and was a hero for Boston.

Carter also helped their offense immensely.

No doubt in my mind Clowe would help this team. He's huge and is a legit mentor for Kassian.. If he's in the line-up that is, lol.

Exactly my point.

Someone said what were the odds of Clowe coming in and playing really well. And I mentioned those two players who put their teams over the top.

Clowe is a playoff performer.

Flyers would have to go on a big streak to make the playoffs but if they get in the Penguins will be having nightmares.

Philadelphia is only 4 points out of the playoffs while the #6, #7, and #8 teams have all been playing .500 hockey and below the past 10 games (Both the Rangers and Devils are under .500 on the season).

As for the Penguins while they would be the favored team they have not dominated Philadelphia even this season. Their biggest win was by 2 goals in the opener and each of the 3 games since were all 1 goal games.

Well Clowe is not playing today so he is being traded if this report is accurate.

Also it matters more how many teams the Flyers have to jump over to get in and not how many points out they are.

So Clowe wants to go to a team that will not be contending this year? I think this report is bs.

@TheFourthPeriod: Umm, so, apparently, according to RDS, Ryane Clowe wants a 7-8 year extension. #facepalm

Philly only team crazy enough to give him that deal?

Points out is more relevant.

Is it better to be behind 5 teams but 2 points behind or is it better to be 1 team out but 10 points behind?

Of the teams in realistic striking range up to #6 none of these teams are over .500, none of these teams have a win streak over 1 game going, only one of those teams is a plus team at only +1.

Realistically if the Flyers went .500 even in the remaining games they would have a pretty strong percentage of making the playoffs.

Of course though unlikely 2 other teams could get red hot and play well over .500 and claim those spots but as of now no one is showing any signs of that. 26 potential points to close a 4 point gap. Philly is still in a good position.
