With strong play from youth at camp, JVR and Patrick's ability to play net front on the power play, and for future cap concerns, Simmonds is a viable trade option. His injuries last year reduced his trade value a bit, but conditional picks should mitigate the risk for both teams.

Dallas isn't all in but they have talent on the roster and will try to progress this season, especially with Heiskanen emerging. Spezza's $7.5MM is coming off the books, although it's partially offset by Seguin's extension. Dallas does not have glaring cap issues and is in an income tax free state.

Dallas: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2019)
Philadelphia: Conditional 2019 1st*, Conditional 2019 4th**, Conditional 2020 5th***

*Top 10 lottery protected. If pick is 1-10, Dallas has the option to defer to 2020 1st (unprotected) and a 2021 3rd
** If Simmonds re-signs, the pick becomes a 2019 2nd
*** If Simmonds scores 25+ goals in 2018-2019, the pick becomes a 2020 3rd

Worst case scenario for Dallas is that Simmonds flops (which he won't) and they're out a lottery protected 1st and two low picks. If Simmonds returns to form and re-signs, the Stars get a veteran 25-30 goal scorer that can play up and down the lineup at a cost of a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

Too much for simmonds, sorry but he isn’t worth any potential lottery pic. The only trade I can see happening for him is a prospect and maybe a couple 2nd/ 3rds, the only way he’s getting a first is if it’s from a team that knows they are playoff bound.


2.) 21 Sep 2018 21:54:20
Is Dallas actually pretty bad now or am I missing something? I don’t think their 1st round will be in the top 10 of next years draft unless lottery odds work in their favor (If they do miss the playoffs)


3.) 21 Sep 2018 22:59:31
Simmonds will get a 1st at the deadline and possibly more if the flyers are out of contention.


4.) 22 Sep 2018 00:32:52
@MJ

They’re extremely topheavy. After their sick first line, your relying on a KHL Nichuskin, Faksa who is a better defensive forward, and a bunch of questions.

Defense is good, and is much better than before, but is not top ten in the league.

And Bishop has fallen out of league favour pretty fast, imo; is barely a top15 goalie in the league anymore.

Theyre good, i'd say they make the playoffs, but their depth has really been exposed. theyd have to rely on Minny and Chicago falling out which is likely, but i'd probably take COL over them tvh.


5.) 22 Sep 2018 14:56:01
"Too much for simmonds, sorry but he isn’t worth any potential lottery pic" I know he isn't, that's why it's Top 10 protected. The reason why 2020 would be unprotected is that teams can just roll the pick forward indefinitely if they suck for a while. Frankly, Simmonds return shouldn't be that far off from Pacioretty. Same contract situation, same age, Pacioretty has a better stat line (but not that much), Simmonds is way better in the locker room etc. Not the same, but similar.


6.) 22 Sep 2018 18:06:39
Ohhhh yeah don’t pay too much attention to Dallas.

The Flyers should move Simmonds now because they will be facing a cap crunch when they need to sign their upcoming RFAs (Provorov, Konecny, Sanheim, Patrick) and can't give Simmonds the term and AAV he'll demand. Buffalo needs a character guy in the locker room to help change the culture and have the cap space in the short and medium term to sign him.

I've modelled it off the Schenn trade and adjusted for contracts, player value etc.

Philadelphia: Conditional SJ 1st 2019 (Kane trade), Conditional 2019 STL 1st (O'Reilly trade), Sobotka ($3.5MM UFA 2020) (borderline cap dump)

Buffalo: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2018), Morin ($700k RFA 2021) NHL ready but injured until February (for the blue line long term)

Both should be firsts in the late teens or 20s.

1.) 15 Aug 2018 20:52:08
Seems like an overpayment from buffalo. He'll be an unrestricted free agent next year so his value decreases slightly due to the latter.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 23:17:28
What exactly are the conditions on the picks.

Values not bad for the beginning of the year.


3.) 15 Aug 2018 23:57:54
I would peg Simmonds as fetching a late first and a B prospect so I added Sobotka and Morin to balance things out. Buffalo has short and medium term cap space to resign Simmonds. I think Simmonds may want to commit to Buffalo if they give him AAV and term, he can play on an up and coming team with Eichel and Dahlin, and is close to Toronto. It also seems Buffalo is willing to part with futures for current talent to become relevant again and have a shot at the playoffs.


4.) 16 Aug 2018 18:14:15
2 1sts for rental? Big overpayment. + buffalos 1st will most likely be bottom 5. They lost there best 2 way forward and winger but replaced Kane with Skinner and you can’t count on a 18 year old dman to carry a team.


5.) 16 Aug 2018 18:37:02
He doesn't have buffalos 1st in this trade if you look they are both from other teams they also aren't just getting simmonds. Unless your thinking that morin is equal to sobotka.


6.) 16 Aug 2018 20:17:13
Yeah, it’s not Sabres own 1st rounder. But still it is apparently based on the Brayden Schenn trade but the blues got a 25 year old Schenn at $5 mill for 3 more years. This is one year and Simmonds, who is turning 30 in a week. He’s great at what he does, but I don’t see the 2 players as that comparable, or their current situations, so I wouldn’t assume that similar of a return. That’s just me though lol.


7.) 16 Aug 2018 21:59:13
Ohh okay my apologies but with that being said at the deadline I could see him maybe getting a 1st or a 2nd + a prospect like Liespic he had a weak season last year similar to Patches.

If Tampa acquires and extends Karlsson (RHD), they need to move out salary and go all in this and next year.

Philadelphia: Girardi ($3MM UFA 2019), Callahan ($5.8MM UFA 2020 NTC), Foote, 2020 1st (TB)
Tampa: Vecchione, Leier

Vecchione is NHL ready but can't crack the roster and Leier has NHL experience. Both are cheap and would be great depth players for a long playoff run which Tampa is poised to do. Callahan might waive to go to a good, young, emerging team if he's smart enough to realize he's an impediment in TB.

Philadelphia has the cap space to take on these contracts without impeding future deals (Provorov, Konecny, Patrick etc). Foote and Myers would be the Flyers RHD of the future.

San Jose: Simmonds ($3.975MM UFA 2019)
Philadelphia: 2019 2nd (FLA), 2020 1st (SJS)

It's doubtful that the Flyers can re-sign Simmonds long term. If the Flyers acquire Callahan, Simmonds is surplus value and should go to a contender that can pay him $5-7MM for 4-6 years. With Thornton coming off the books, the Sharks can extend Simmonds for their window. Philadelphia has Voracek, Konecny, and Allison as RW long term.

Philadelphia maximizes their return while using cap space and roster spots. 2019 Draft priority is RW.

Flyers 2020-2021 Roster:

Giroux-Couturier-Konency
JVR-Patrick-Voracek
Lindblom-Frost-Allison

In waiting: Ratcliffe, Farabee, Rubstov, Vorobyev, Strome, Sushko, O'Brien

Provorov-Myers
Gostisbehere-Foote
Sanheim-Hagg/Morin/Friedman

Good post.


2.) 03 Aug 2018 20:05:43
Foote and a 1st to move out Cally? Don’t think so. It’ll prolly just take the 1st. Cause Girardi is basically just a rental cause his contract ends before any resigning would be done.

Simmonds trade isn’t that bad imo, but ain’t that third line a bit inexperienced? Idk, i'd prefer Simmonds there imo.


3.) 04 Aug 2018 07:10:37
Foote and 1st is way too steep a price to pay to trade Callahans remaining contract. Could as well buy him out next summer. And you think if Vecchione and Leier can't crack PHIs arguably worse F corps, they will make it on TB? Weird logic
Either send some good value back or take out Foote and then TB maybe considers it.

With the Flyers definitely out of the Tavares sweepstakes and Tampa Bay being a realistic, albeit less likely possibility, Hextall could take on a toxic contract that ends in 2018 to continue to build his prospect pool:

Philadelphia: Raddysh, Coburn (cap dump), 2019 3rd
Tampa Bay: Rights to Hagg

Tampa gets cap flexibility to sign Tavares and gets a young NHL defenceman with a ceiling of a #4. Philadelphia takes an inflated contract and firms up their RW prospect pool.

***This trade is conditional on Tavares indicating to Yzerman that he wants to sign in Tampa.

AND/OR

Philadelphia: Kulikov, 2019 1st
Winnipeg: Future considerations

Eazy E

1.) 29 Jun 2018 20:11:02
That contract would be Callahan not Couburn.


2.) 29 Jun 2018 20:24:18
Kulikov and a 1st for what futures? The Jets would want an idea of what this package would get them.


3.) 29 Jun 2018 21:45:41
Kulikovs contract isn't that bad (if he can stop getting injured) especially with enstrom gone.


 

 

29 Jun 2018 18:54:39
Philadelphia: 2019 1st (VGK), 2020 2nd (DAL), 2019 3rd (WPG), conditional 2020 2nd (PIT)*
Vegas: Simmonds ($3.975MM until 2019)

*only if Simmonds re-signs with Vegas

Vegas gets a for a consistent goal-scorer and locker room leader with the long term cap space in a tax free environment to give Simmonds the deal he deserves. Philadelphia gets draft picks and allows them to re-sign their upcoming RFAs (Konecny, Provorov, Sanheim etc). This would be similar to the Tatar trade before the deadline.

Eazy E

1.) 29 Jun 2018 19:28:52
Pretty good, just Vegas trades their first this year which was fine because they finished so well. They’re going to lose a cpl players this year and that performance would be near impossible to repeat anyway. Add to that that their system has 3 good first rounders from last year in it, but isn’t stocked yet like other teams having 4-5 years of firsts playing or close to it. Could be dangerous trading 2 of your first 3 years of 1st rounders as a brand new franchise.

Washington will be hard pressed to re-sign key members of their Cup winning team and are obviously in win-now mode. Philadelphia, providing that they don't make any big moves in free agency, have cap space for 2018-2019 only. With Morin out until February, a veteran presence on an expiring contract is ideal.

Washington: Vecchione ($900k RFA in 2019)
Philadelphia: Orpik ($5.5MM until 2019)(cap dump), Lucas Johansen (1/28 in 2016), 2018 3rd

This allows Washington to re-sign Carlson (and Kempny etc) without costing them a roster player. Philadelphia takes Orpik for one year, gets a good defensive prospect, and replenishes its 2018 3rd (Mrazek trade).

Eazy E

1.) 09 Jun 2018 21:52:23
I think Washington would love that. Losing Carlson would be a big blow to an already relatively weak D core. Losing Orpik would give them some space to add another quality D.


2.) 10 Jun 2018 03:09:06
I’d think Phillly would rather want Washingtons 1st from this year or a forward prospect no? Simply because Philly is so deep on d.

From Mark Easson on My nhl trade rumors and Joe Haggarty on NBC, the Bruins want secondary scoring and to get larger on LHD:

BOS: Wayne Simmonds ($3.975MM until 2019) %50 retained, Morin (NHL ready defenceman that would've been at the NHL level but for Sanheim and injury, 6'6", 227 lbs)
PHI: Zboril, Jakob Forsbacka Karlsson, 2018 FLA 3rd

Easson mentioned Simmonds specifically and would be great on the Bruins 2nd PP. Sam Morin is only 3 inches and 25 lbs lighter than Chara. Both PHI players fill BOS needs.

Eazy E

1.) 21 May 2018 12:55:12
Zboril and Karlson and the third isn't getting you Simonds alone so your not getting Morin on top of that. I actually value more Morin then Zboril because although Morin is taking time to develop he is developing and improving every year and if he plays full time in the nhl next season, people will be surprise by what he does on the ice. he's the next Cris Pronger.


2.) 21 May 2018 13:46:57
“ Morin is the next Chris Pronger “ that is just a silly stament I’m willing to bet anything that Morin dosent even touch a Norris trophy let alone a Heart Trophy. Connor Carick is the next Paul Coffey.


3.) 21 May 2018 23:49:31
Morin will not be a norris trophy winner but a shutdown defence carrick would be lucky to be in the league in a couple of years flyers d in two years ghost provorov sandheim myers morin hagg solid 1/ 6 and hart in net no need for d unless its carlson 8m / 7y gudas would then need to be dealt.


4.) 22 May 2018 03:13:34
Chris Pronger is one of the best dman of all time. Morin won’t be half the player.

Arizona has many top young prospects but needs on-ice results next season. A top pick in this year's draft will likely not help; they need to shift talent from the future to the present. They also have lots of cap space.

Philadelphia's core cannot win as it's currently constructed with another first round playoff exit and a shakeup, not a retool or rebuild is needed. Although the pipeline has lots of prospects, the Flyers need to replace their core.

Philadelphia: Fischer and Strome OR 2018 1st (Dahlin protected) and 2018 CGY 3rd
Arizona: Voracek, Morin

Strome has struggled and can use a change of scenery. It's 2018 and he's still not an NHL regular. Voracek would replace Fischer and double the points production from that position. If Arizona wants to go big in free agency, Philadelphia can take Bolland's contract.

Voracek ($8.25MM for 6 years) scored 85 points last year, tied for 13th in the league with Marchand and Barzal, 1 point ahead of Tavares, 1 behind Stamkos, and 2 behind Ovechkin. He doesn't have the value that those players have but he's not some pointless plug. There's no room for Morin on Philadelphia's blueline but there is on Arizona's. He's not waiver exempt next year so he will be on an NHL roster.

Let me repeat, Arizona needs to start winning hockey games and become relevant to their fans. Years of top picks have failed to do that. They have done this type of trade before (Stepan and Raanta for a 1st and DeAngelo) and need points this year, not next or over the course of a career.

Eazy E

1.) 25 Apr 2018 03:23:18
I don’t think they’re a Vorchek away from competing. That being said I think they’d consider Strome and Fischer for Vorchek.


2.) 25 Apr 2018 10:12:17
To make this contract apelling they wpuld have to retain. Arizona will start to hit the bar if they keep taking bad and huge contract. Sorry but even after a good season Jakub Voracek is overlaid because he is not a consitent ppg player and not even a consitent 70+ point player. At 6 million he could get you Strome and Fischer. At 8,5 million he get you Strome and that's it.


 

 

21 Feb 2018 02:52:59
Arizona needs veteran scoring and has tons of cap space. They've added Stepan and Raanta to bolster the kids but more is needed. Philadelphia is pretty good capwise but have major contracts coming due (Provorov and Simmonds in 2019). If Lindblom, Allison, and Frost can be NHLers next year or by 2019, the Flyers will have cap issues.

2018 Offseason

Arizona: Voracek (6 years at $8.25MM) 13 G/55 A/68 P in 60 GP
Philadelphia: Fischer, Merkeley or Steenbergen, 2019 2nd

Voracek drives possession well is tied for 6th in NHL scoring this year, including 1st in assists. He has more points than Ovechkin, Crosby, and Tavares (not saying he's better or more valuable than them, I'm just illustrating a fact) this year. This gives Arizona a legitimate, well-developed 1st line winger.

This allows the Flyers to resign their key free agents and helps with their retool in getting faster and younger while retaining veteran leadership (Simmonds, Giroux, Couturier).

Eazy E

1.) 21 Feb 2018 15:22:30
No from Arizona Voracek is overpaid and worth a second at most.


2.) 21 Feb 2018 15:59:17
Vorocheck is in the top ten in scoring. How is he only worth a 2nd and is overpaid? Lmao. Easy on the hate man.


3.) 21 Feb 2018 16:45:05
I think his contract will hurt in a cpl years, but the player is legit right now. Worth a lot, but to the right team. I think arizona hasn’t shown that they’re getting any better over the last cpl seasons and if they still don’t get better for another 2-3 years (which is very possible with their history) then they have wasted the best years of Voracek and are paying him an inflated salary for lower production when they are a better team and their young core is entering their prime.
