Deal or No Deal- Would You Make This Trade? Vol. 3

The trade deadline has come and gone, but that won’t stop the trade scenarios from pouring in from the desperate Flyers fans who want a good hockey team iced in 2022-23. All eyes are turning to the offseason and potential blockbuster deals that will put the Flyers back in contention. We scoured CapFriendly’s Armchair GM tool for all latest big time fan-suggested trades for the Flyers’ offseason.

You’re the GM of the Philadelphia Flyers and the trade proposals below come across your desk, do you make the trade?

Crazy Chicago Trade by sk540

Hey, we recognize this trade! It was proposed in our “Crazy Trade Scenario” piece and someone took it to the CapFriendly Armchair GM realm, so now we can bring it back and suggest it here. Any deal to land either Kane or DeBrincat would have to knock Chicago’s socks off, and this is about as strong of an offer the Flyers could muster. Financially speaking, this deal would work for both clubs.

Kane, 33, has 21 goals and 79 points in 62 games and has one year left at a $10.5 million cap hit.

DeBrindcat, 24, has 38 goals and 64 points in 67 games and has one year left at a $6.4 million cap hit.

Roster Overhaul with huge Calgary Trade by DH28Hockey

Calgary is going to have to make some tough decisions this summer as the salary cap closes in with a few big names to re-sign. Tkachuk, 24, who is a pending restricted free agent, is having a career year with 32 goals and 82 points in 65 games. He’s a prototypical Flyer if ever there was one, from scoring, to physicality to attitude, he’s the full package. Worth noting, the Flyers do not own either of LAK or TOR’s 2022 picks, but this trade features both of the Flyers’ best prospects in York and Frost as well as Konecny, who is basically Tkachuk lite.

GM Game Flyers- Gronk Era Has Begun by Gronk

Anytime a wild trade featuring half a roster’s worth of players is suggested, it immediately piques the interest for a spot on one of these lists. This trade doesn’t even come close to working out financially, with the Kings’ offering clocking in at just shy of $13 million while the Flyers would be just over $8 million, the biggest contract being Kopitar for $10 million for two more years. A 1-2 punch of Couturier and Kopitar (who is going to turn 35 this summer) down the middle would make the Flyers one hell of a team to play against.

Nobody really knows what the Sharks are doing from a cap perspective, but it could hinder them from re-signing Meier next season. The 25-year-old winger is in the middle of a breakout season with 30 goals and 65 points in 60 games. He’s got one year left on his current deal at a $6 million cap hit. Konecny provides a bit of cost certainty clocking in at $5.5 for three more seasons, and Wade Allison seems to be a superstar in the making, with injuries ultimately hindering his potential. Throw in the picks they received from the Giroux and Braun trades and it is a potentially formidable offer for the Sharks.

Just the Tippett by JBPhi

Dylan Larkin has come under the microscope as a long-shot target for the Flyers in their hunt for a number one center. While in reality this trade feels mighty short from a Flyers’ perspective, it also isn’t a terrible starting point. Konency and Frost provide them with main roster building blocks, Fedotov, who may or may not make the jump to North America in the future, gives them a pretty sizable goaltending prospect, and the Flyers 2022 forst rounder will probably be a top five pick.

Larkin has 28 goals and 62 points in 61 games for the Red Wings, with one year left on his current contract that pays him $6.1 million.

Re-tool if Ellis is done by vinny82

The Flyers have circled around Laine in the past when his tension were high in Winnipeg, but a deal was ultimately not reached. Now that his days in Columbus may be limited and the Flyers desperately need some scoring, it wouldn’t be surprising if they try and acquire his rights this summer. Laine, 24, has 25 goals and 51 points in 48 games this season, a nice bounce back from his previous season. It’s a relatively decent ask for a top goalscorer, and the Flyers would clear $8.5 million in cap between Konecny and Lindblom, more then enough to re-sign Laine.

Thoughts Could be way Off by Carts88

The Provorov trade rumors have started to fly, and the biggest question is the value he’d hold. This deal to St. Louis would bring back a 20-year-old forward prospect in Jake Neighbours and a likely late-round 2022 first round pick. Neighbours has 15 goals and 41 points in 26 games as the captain of the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL this season. He was St. Louis’ 26th overall pick in 2020.

Comcasts Retool Attempt by Samsoc22

A top young center is pretty high on the priority list for the Flyers, and Pierre-Luc Dubois is an interesting target to fit that bill. Dubois turns 24 during the summer and has 25 goals and 50 points in 66 games for the Jets as their second line center. He’d be a huge improvement over Frost, and Provorov would be the major piece going back. Do you give up your top defenseman for a young center?

i hate it here lets make it better by fightthefuture

Here’s an interesting trade featuring two players who had huge hype as prospects but haven’t quite lived up to expectations at the NHL level. It’d be a change of scenery with hopes of both players gaining some traction with new clubs. Tolvanen turns 23 in April and has nine goals and 20 points this season and 21 goals and 41 points in 111 NHL games. Frost has three goals and ten points this season and five goals and 17 points in 62 career NHL games.

Fantasize by P3R77U_

A straight forward one-for-one trade where the Flyers acquire a dynamic offensive-minded defenseman for Travis Konecny. Girard, 24, has five years left on his current deal at a $5 million cap hit, while Konecny, 25, has three years left at a $5.5 million cap hit. Girard is a lefty, but has experience playing on either side as well as seeing regular time on the powerplay.
