Deal or No Deal- Would You Make This Trade?

Flyers fan creating trades is never not peak entertainment. Thanks to CapFriendly’s ArmchairGM Tool, fans can share their creations to the masses and be judged for their creativity. In the past we’ve looked at the best trade deadline trades and various Claude Giroux scenarios, but this time let’s do something a little different. Sometimes, the trades proposed are enticing despite a low likelihood of happening in real life. Even though they may not hold a grasp in reality, if you were the GM and these trades came across your desk, would you do it?

This time, we’re opening it up to the Brotherly Puck readers. Leave your votes for every trade below!

Tanksylvania by AFox23

A trade ripped right out of NHL22, the 19-year-old second overall pick in 2020 Quinton Byfield is still getting acclimated to the NHL. While he’s still obviously a big part of their future plans, if the Kings are serious about getting back into the Cup contention, dealing him for two good players right now could push them over the edge sooner rather than later. Do they sacrifice the future for two players to win now?

After Selling At The Trade Deadline by Agent_Of_R9

Marner may not be on the trade block just yet, but if the Leafs take another fall in the playoffs, there may be major chances in Toronto. Muzzin and Provorov are probably a wash as top LHD, so the deal would be more around Marner (3x$10.9 aav). Assuming Konecny, Van Riemsdyk and a pair of draft picks would interest the Leafs (which seems unlikely) should the Flyers pull the trigger on this deal?

Next Season After Trade With Flames by Dmh1055

Now 27 years old, Sean Monahan is starting to take a back seat in Calgary. The three-time 30-goal scorer has taken up residency on the third line most of the season, being deployed in a defense-first role. He has one year left on his current deal at $6.37 million. Flyers desperately need a center and Monahan will work well in the middle-six with Kevin Hayes.

in the mood to argue and debate by porkchops223344

This was part of a huge selection of trades that border on parody, so the Flyers don’t own that second or fourth round pick or Antoine Roussel, so this deal would ultimately be TK, Frost and a 2024 first round pick for Laine. That has been a scenario that has been floating around in the Flyers trade rumor mill for the last few seasons but has never come to fruition. Now that Laine is playing like a star again, the price seems to be worth the admission. He’s an RFA at season’s end.

Fixing the Flyers by cursed_hockey

There’s a good chance Doug Armstrong would laugh in your stupid face for even suggesting this deal, but it’d be swapping your top left handed defenseman for a top right handed defenseman. Parayko turns 29 in May and just signed an eight-year, $52 million ($6.5 aav) extension. Provorov is 25 with three years left on his contract with a $6.75 million cap hit.

Kevin Hayes (C), who turns 30 in May, has four years left on his deal at a $7.1 million cap hit.

Brent Burns (RHD), who turns 37 in March, has three years left on his deal at a $8 million cap hit.

Burns is obviously not the player he once was, but still seems good for 40+ points a season. It’s a way to get out of Hayes’ contract and add a right handed defenseman with offensive potential on a slightly shorter deal but a higher aav.

Just for fun by carts88

Scheifele’s name has hit the trade rumor mill and if there’s fire to that smoke, the Flyers should be weighing their options as a team desperate for center depth. He has two years left on his current deal at a $6.1 cap hit and has 42 points in 45 games this season and has been over a point-per-game player in each of the last five seasons.

Re-tool by Frankcarp21

Best preface this by saying Vilardi (22 years old, 11th overall pick in 2017, 31 points in 71 NHL games) seems destined to be traded as Chychrun-to-LA rumors have picked up some steam, but assuming the Flyers get there first, and offer them Sanheim, would he and a second round pick move the needle to deal Travis?

Newhook and Barron to Philly by Kicken_555

The ultimate battle in new school puck moving defenseman vs old school 6’7 strength. Oleksiak is 29 and has four years left at a $4.6 million cap it. Sanheim will turn 26 in March and has on year left at a $4.65 million cap hit.

The dream future by Kicken_55

Just couldn’t resist but adding this scenario. Flyers fans are turning on Provorov at an alarming rate and are swooning for the days of Shayne Gostisbehere. If you could essentially undo the Ghost trade by sacrificing Provorov (and for some reason a first round pick) would you?

After 21-22 TDL into 22-23 by Hammerwise

The Flyers are probably having second thoughts about signing Couturier to his massive eight-year, $62 million extension and should probably start fielding offers for the 29-year-old fresh off back surgery. Caufield is a 21-year-old up-and-coming scoring winger who was a star in the playoffs last season, but has struggled with the rest of the Canadiens roster during the 2021-22 season. Dvorak, a third and a fifth aren’t worth that much in the grand scheme of things, so it’d be Caufield for Couturier more or less straight up.

does this make sense for vancouver by York

This has been a long-rumored trade scenario. It was featured in our yearly “Crazy Trade Scenarios” piece from 2020. Boeser is a pending restricted free agent and the Canucks don’t have much money, thus making him a potential trade target. They’re basically the exact same age, 25, born just 14 days apart in 1997. He has 15 goals and 30 points this season, compared to Konecny’s eight goals and 31 points. Boeser has 240 points in 300 career games versus TK’s 250 points in 400 games. Boeser will probably be slightly more expensive than Teek’s $5.5 cap hit, but his offensive production will be better too.
