Listening to WIP this morning, Morganti indicated that the Flyers are talking hard to Calgary and Edmonton to do something major. They need something cause this team is absolutely uninspired right now.
Calgary & Edmonton? Let's see.....who would be available off of those rosters?
All the best players from the Oilers wouldn't be available probably.....like Eberle, Hall, RNH......we'll probably get a 40 point guy like Sam Gagner. No thanks.
Calgary? We'll probably get a Hartnell/Simmonds clone like Glencross.
For what it's worth - Oilers GM Craig MacTavish and president Kevin Lowe scouted the game. The Oilers are on an East Coast swing and visit Philly on Saturday, but they could also be interested in swinging a deal for one of their young players. Edmonton is buried in the Western Conference after a poor start in a year they were supposed to contend for a playoff spot. MacTavish and Lowe were at Madison Square Garden on Monday.
In 14 games this team has scored more than 2 goals a grand total of 1 time. In 8 of those games, they scored 1 goal. Not hard to see where the fault lays with the players. It's hard to win when you don't put the puck in the net. I can't believe a team this talented on paper has gone on a dry spell this long. I really don't want a trade to be made to be honest. The last thing we need is a desperate GM who will most likely be fired at seasons end to make decisions that will give away long term assets. Best to can Homer and rebuild in the offseason with new GM/Coach and players.
