It's a take each other's trash move, essentially. The Flyers have too many centers, the Panthers have too many wings.

Rare Habs-Leafs trade in the works. Josh Gorges for an unnamed roster player (Kadri? Franson?JVR?), though the deal hinges on Gorges waiving his no-trade clause. It's a cap move, unloading a left defenseman, which the Habs have in abundance and making room for a young D-man like Beaulieu.

Definitely. We have too many players in general. But the bottom line with Florida is we have a lot of centers, but also a lot of young centers. Most of which who we want to try at wing. And no experience at center (everyone is 22 or younger).

depending on who is going back I'm ok with this move, I agree that I can't see it being JVR or Kadri though

The Flyers have too many centers who can't play the wing. They clearly thought either Lecavalier or Baby Schenn would simply slide to the wing on the second line, but neither of them could make an impact on there. The Flyers were best this year when Lecavalier moved to fourth line center, which is insane for a guy with his contract. If they can move him and a defenseman with a bad contract (I am praying for MacDonald but it will never happen, so Fat Schenn or Grossmann will do), they might be in alright shape moving forward.

Gorges isn't Bobby Orr,but the guy has the habs logo tattooed on his heart.

Bergevin better come up with a big signing tomorrow to replace him,because it's going to be a tough pill to swallow,if not.

Yeah, we have the type that have all been playing wing but are all more successful at center. Then, we have useless underachieving older individuals. One thing is for certain... Barkov and Bjugstad are centering for us. Whether or not we want to run 3 scoring lines is another story...

But one thing for sure... Lecavalier is going to be brought in for our abysmal PP if he comes to Florida. Guys like Pirri and Trochek can play wing.

Side effect of legalizing marijuana in Colorado. Only logical reason for why the Avalanche made that deal. Someone must have been high.

If anyone's been smoking too much pot, it's PA Paranteau.

His game has fallen off. Much like Scottie Upshall or Thomas Kopecky in Florida, those guys only produced recently because they were on a bad team playing top line minutes. Paranteau isn't that good, and Colorado wont be happy when they're trying to sign their youngsters and they hit cap issues because PA's salary four years from now when he's 25 is blocking them.

Briere on the other hand, who will put out the same production as he did in Montreal, is the same price and the same cap hit for a smaller period of time. The value of cap space heading into an overvalued market is huge, and much like the Same Gagner flip by Tampa... people can't appreciate it... yet.

Rumor has it Florida will sign Dave Bolland to a 6/7 year contract, and that Bolland turned down a 5/25 from Toronto

Say it ain't so Dale
