    That's all doable if we can move Vinny ($2.5M in savings) and are willing to move Schenn ($3.4M savings). Ehrhoff will probably be looking for 1-2 years at $4M. Semin probably 1 year at $2M.

    I think the most I'd be willing to do for Shattenkirk would be B. Schenn, MDZ, Laughton & conditional 1st. That's about the limit.

    Simmonds is just too valuable on the PP, and for a team trying...

    To be honest, the major problem for the Flyers is that advanced stats aren't admissible in arbitration cases. Only stats kept and maintained by the NHL are admissible. So MDZ's solid prima facie...

    I agree with all of that. I'd still like to see one other contract moved....maybe Vinny goes? For someone who has publicly said he wants out, he's not helping himself much.

    The priority must be to unload at least one other contract. It doesn't look like anything is happening with Vinny or Umberger, and moving MacDonald doesn't seem feasible thanks to Homer. That's over...

    Kunitz - Crosby - Kessel could pose some problems.

    That's a pretty bad return for TOR -- especially if they're eating salary. Oh well. The only problem is that Pittsburgh just got a lot better.

    Panaccio is an idiot. Pronger was on 4 teams...does that make him terrible? What about Jagr? He's on team #6 (PIT, WSH, NYR, PHI, NJD, FLA). It's a ludicrous argument.

    Williams is an advanced stats hero -- and he's relatively young at 33. Not to mention the fact that come April and May, he transforms in a monster. I'd love Williams. But Schenn or Simmonds would...

    Why would we do that? We have one problematic contract (MacDonald) left to move. Vinny should be gone and Umberger is likely moveable for pennies.

    Don't throw away young assets for the sake of it.

    Then Hextall just has to move Umberger, which might not be as difficult as we originally thought and agree to a contract termination with Vinny.
