We will not be trading for either Schenn, let alone both of them and Simmonds.

If this were the deal, it would be declined. Bryz is on a worse contract than Luongo so they have no reason to acquire him. Luongo + generic trade filler + picks is not enough to move 3 young players who will be part of the teams core for years to come.

Lastly, its Connauton.

Philadelphia guts their core for depth players?

Post Philadelphia's new line up and you will see why this trade doesn't help them.

Plus Philadelphia's issues have not been depth it's been a lack of a #1 defenseman and underproduction from the top scorers.

Not to mention even the logic that this gives Philadelphia depth is flawed.

- Replacing Luke Schenn with Ballard does not make them better defensively.

- Both Mason Raymond and Schroeder (much less) have less points than Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds in more games played.

- The only depth they get is in goal with Lu and Bryz but both cannot play at once and both contracts cripple them financially.

This hurts Philadelphia as a team in current day as well as the future.
