...I smell Bobby Ryan...
How come some many Philly fans over rate the Flyers players?
Would be a very interesting trade to see who gets a kicker, because they are fairly close in value, not sure why either team would want to swap those 2 players. BUT, very interesting because I am sure the Flyers want that #6 pick as well. Homer blabbed and revealed he wants a top 6 pick
Flyers: JVR, 20th pick, 45th pick, Read, Bart/Bourdon
Ducks: Ryan, #6
I would think thats kinda close. But I wouldnt do it if I am Homer, personally.
so you could potentially land a solid D-man there, along with bobby ryan. and you still have enough cap space to sign carle or whoever else you want.
i'd have to think long and hard about that deal.
yea I do not want to be Homer today...
if part of the "7 player deal" involves either Timonen or Briere waiving their NMC, I'll do some backflips later
Hate to see Bob go because I think he had/has a chance to be a really strong goaltender in this league and it's a little frustrating to have to give up on a guy that young. Unfortunately his contract status is basically forcing us to make this move. We backed ourselves into a corner with his contract and now with Bryz in the way we blocked him from being able to develop somewhere.
He should get lots of PT in Columbus so good for Bob...but we had to do it.
Love how certain people hate this move. Hate to tell you guys but Bob sucks, as a matter of fact right now he straight up sucks. Who cares what he's going to do 5 years from now, why keep a project who is going to hurt our cap that has no chance of playing anytime soon with Bryzgalov here?
It's the right move no matter how you look at it, we need help in other places and need all of the cap help we can get. Who cares who the backup is, Bob was terrible when he played anyway. Let Leighton do it for the league minimum, he honestly can't be any worse.
First off...there's nothing wrong with not wanting to see a guy with serious athletic ability and talent leave your organization. The same reason people were reluctant to give up on JVR.
There's a difference between not being happy to see the guy go and recognizing that it was the right thing. It had to be done..but at the same time it would have been interesting to see if he could develop into something strong.
And I guess secondly....don't mind us if we don't get on board with the "he straight up sucks" just because you said so ...not that you're not a bright guy..but you understand
