retool it by wolsen92

Ever since the Leafs got eliminated from the first round yet again, fans have made the connection as a possible trade destination with the Flyers.

Nylander, now 26 years old, had a career-best 34 goals and 80 points in 81 games this season, it was the second time in the last three seasons he hit the 30-goal plateau. He’s got two years left on his current contract at a $6.9 million cap hit.

Travis Konecny, 25, posted 16 goals and 52 points in 2021-22. He’s got three years left at a $5.5 million cap hit.

The Flyers get an upgrade at wing and the Leafs get a bit of salary relief for a slight downgrade, plus a pair of mid-round picks to make up for the difference.

Will this please the comcast overlords by FighterFoos23

Dubois is a 24-year-old pending restricted free agent who posted 28 goals and 60 points in 81 games during 2021-22. It was a new personal best in goals and second highest point total of his career so far. After struggling in Columbus and his early days in Winnipeg, he has seemingly finally found his footing as a promising center that his draft position at third overall entitled him to be.

For the Flyers to land the young center of their dreams, it will cost them their top defenseman in Ivan Provorov and the first round pick they received in the Giroux trade.

It’s a steep price to pay, and they’d still have to sign Dubois to an extension, but it may just be the going rate to land them a top center.

Full rebuild by saadkhan09

The Blackhawks are apparently listening to all offers this summer, and this is a sneaky good way for the Flyers to address their lack of center depth and clear an ugly contract off the books at the same time.

Strome, now 25 years old, had the best season of his career in 2021-22 posting 22 goals and 48 points in 69 games for the Blackhawks. He’s a pending restricted free agent coming off a deal that paid him $3 million a season. JVR, 34, has one year left at a $7 million cap hit.

The Flyers get a middle-six center and ditch JVR in the process.

a little doubt can go a long way by ReelBigFan

Rumor has it the Blackhawks are listening to offers on Alex DeBrincat, and that team’s are asking to part ways with their top pick in the 2022 NHL draft. The Devils are apparently willing to deal the second overall pick, meaning the Flyers would need to match by giving up their fifth overall selection. There’s a good chance in reality the Flyers would need to seriously add to this offer, but in this scenario it’s as simple as the fifth overall pick for 24-year-old two-time 40-goal scorer Alex DeBrincat.

Flyers Rebirth by Shan83

26-year-old William Nylander may be the odd man out in Toronto this season after another first round playoff exit. He has two years left on his current contract that carries a $6.9 million cap hit. The Leafs would also throw in their 2023 third round pick.

For the Flyers, they would have to part ways with top defenseman Ivan Provorov, who is 25 years old with three years left at $6.7 million. They would also have to surrender 21-year-old Bobby Brink, who made his NHL debut in 2021-22. He scored four points, all assists, in 10 games to close out the season.

Back to the playoffs by Matthewslover

J.T. Miller had a career year in 2021-22, posting 32 goals and 99 points for the Canucks. He’s got one year left on his current contract with at $5.2 million cap hit.

Tucker Poolman is a 29-year-old right-handed defenseman with three years left at a $2.5 million cap hit. He’s got just 160 NHL games to his name.

This scenario would also include Vancouver’s 2022 first round pick which, as noted, is 15th overall.

The Flyers would give up 26-year-old defenseman Travis Sanheim, who has one year left on his current deal before he becomes an unrestricted free agent in 2023, as well as their 2022 first round pick which is fifth overall.

The Flyers get their top center and a depth RHD, but at the cost of Sanheim and their fifth overall pick.

A Winnipeg Fan Proposed Trade by Dmh1055

Scheifele’s name has been bouncing around the Flyers’ rumor mill as their hunt for a legitimate center intensifies. He’s 29 years old and has two years left on his current contract at a $6.1 million cap hit. Scheifele registered 29 goals and 70 points in

Blake Wheeler is a 15-year NHL veteran forward. Now 35, he has two years left on a contract that pays him $8.25 million per season. He posted 17 goals and 60 points in 65 games during 2021-22.

30-year-old defenseman Nate Schmidt scored 32 points in 77 games during his first season in Winnipeg. He’s got three years left on his deal at a $5.9 million cap hit.

In this scenario, the Flyers would clear the last year of JVR’s $7 million contract, they’d dump the remaining five years of question mark defenseman Ryan Ellis, and give up Travis Konecny, their 2023 first round pick as well as forward prospect Wade Allison for the upgrade.

Offseason by braisman

In the ultimate two-part trade, the Flyers would be offloading the final year of JVR’s contract and simultaneously put together a package enticing enough to acquire defenseman Jakob Chychrun.

Chychrun is a 24-year-old top defenseman who posted 21 points in 47 games for the Coyotes in 2021-22. He’s got three years left on his contract at a reasonable $4.6 million cap hit.

The Flyers would be shedding the last season of Van Riemsdyk’s $7 million cap hit and a second round pick to entice them to do it, then the first rounder and Travis Konecny to make up the difference to add Chychrun.

Fixing Fletcher and Culture Mess by coachsethluttrell

It wouldn’t be a Deal or No Deal piece without a completely batshit entry, would it? This trade ultimately boils down to trading the Flyers’ core in exchange for Nashville’s prospect pool.

Philip Tomasino is a 21-year-old forward who was a first round pick in 2019. He scored 11 goals and 32 points in 76 games during his first NHL season in 2021-22. He’s got two years left on his entry-level contract.

Alexandre Carrier is a 25-year-old defenseman. He played in his first full NHL season in 2021-22 where he scored three goals and 30 points in 77 games. He’s got one year left on his ELC.

Zachary L’Heureux is a 19 year-old forward prospect who finished his third season in the QMJHL where he scored 56 points in 46 games. He just recently signed his entry-level deal.

Jeremy Lauzon is a 25-year-old defenseman who just signed a four-year extension at a $2 million aav.

Ryan Johansen is a 30-year-old forward who has three years left on his current deal at $8 million per season. He has his best season in many years in 2021-22 posting 26 goals and 63 points in 79 games.

From the Flyers’ perspective, they clear a combined $26.9 million in cap space, revamp their rebuild efforts, and get out from Sean Couturier’s massive eight-year extension before it kicks in.

Miller by RC333

In another one-for-one deal for the Flyers’ fifth overall pick, this time they’d be dealing it to Vancouver for 29-year-old center J.T. Miller. He posted 32 goals and 99 points during the 2021-22 campaign and has one year left on his current contract at $5.2 million.

The flyers are proud to select by mulletmario7

The straight-up price for Scheifele is going to be an interesting option for the Flyers, given he may be high on their list for a potential center addition. In this scenario, it would cost them forward Morgan Frost and defenseman Ivan Provorov.

Scheifele is 29 years old, posted 29 goals and 70 points in 67 games during 2021-22 and has two years left at $6.1 a million cap hit.
