    You are totally stuck with Weise and Raffl unfortunately.

    All that said, I don't see them being any more competitive next year than they were in the previous two.

    The only thing you can hope for is Hextall backs off his patience a bit and starts playing the kids or grows a set and trades for the future stars of the team.
    I think you can move raffle but I don't think Ronald wants to.

    also think eating half reads salary can get you a 7th rd pick lol or "futures". Again I am not sure he wants to move said player.

    and the assistant GM.

    wonder if you can move him to dallas for one of their goalies? maybe letonen

    I'd trade the 2nd in this draft to Vegas if they would agree to select MacDonald in the expansion draft.

    no way, not worth it imo.

    If you eat money and include a mid level prospect or pick maybe just maybe you can move him. flyers are not contending so need to panic moving him just yet,

    I dont think it really matters at this point anymore. Who is he really blocking?

    Provorov Here
    Gostisbehere Here
    MacDonald Here

    3 Rosters spots for Morin, Sanheim, Hagg, Myers, Manning

    Let's face it. Myers is going to start in the AHL no matter what. That's part of the process. There's nothing blocking any of the other seasoned prospects from coming up and making in camp. None of them are highly paid, with the exception of maybe Gostisbehere. The MacDonald narrative needs to be laid to rest for now.

    You forgot Gudas. But really, to me, it would also give us an opportunity to sign someone like Alzner who could help out on our zone and mentor Morin. That opportunity doesn't exist with MacDonald still on the Roster. If you can pull that off it is essentially a 2nd and MacDonald for Alzner. That sounds like a good deal to me.

    no way to alzner. he will want and likely get a long term deal. If you get him for 2/3 years maybe. That is unlikely.

    you don't need alzners types considering where the flyers are in terms of contending.

    I have zero interest in bringing any new contract for a mediocre blue liner. You are just replacing one whipping boy for another whipping boy. Alzner will probably be getting somewhere in the neighborhood of a 4 year 18 million dollar deal. I don't think Morin needs a mentor either. MacDonald has played successfully with Gostisbehere last season and Provorov this season. Maybe he can be that guy for Morin, or Sanheim, or Hagg. Depending on who makes the 2 roster spots

    Yeah, I'm ready to ride out the D as is. Bring the kids up as they are ready, move the ones you don't need and add some top 6 scoring.
