Deal or No Deal- Would You Make this Trade? Vol. 11

Nothing like the feeling of preparing for the trade deadline and offseason before the regular season puck drops because it’s a guarantee your favorite hockey team will be a bottom feeder once again. To cope with the losing, Flyers fans have taken to CapFriendly’s Armchair GM tool to build future scenarios to move some cap, add some youth and take advantage of teams desperate for success.

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

A trade deadline deal that would see the Leafs improve their depth while the Flyers get the best player in the trade and promising youngster Rasmus Sandin.

At this point, Nylander, 26, would easily be the Flyers’ best forward with 34 goals and 80 points during the 2021-22 campaign. He’s one more season left at $6.9 million cap hit

Jake Muzzin is now 33 years old and a LHD with one year left at $5.6 million.

Rasmus Sandin recently signed a two-year, $1.4 aav contract after holding out. He’s 22 years old with 88 NHL games under his belt with six goals and 28 points during that stretch. He is a left-handed defenseman as well.

The Flyers get the best player in the deal in William Nylander, a young defense option on the left side and eat Muzzin’s contract to make it work. The Leafs get upgraded depth, especially on defense, and a chippy middle six winger in Konecny.

Next Year by littlejerryseinfeld

This one was proposed before Couturier’s herniated disc was made public.

Casey Mittelstadt is a 24-year-old forward prospect who has struggled to live up to the draft hype he had being taken eighth overall in 2017. He has 80 points in 195 NHL games.

Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen is a 23-year-old goaltender whom the Sabres organization has dreams of grandeur for. He had a .917 save percentage and 2.74 goals against average in nine games with the NHL club last season.

Victor Olofsson is a 27-year-old winger who is a two-time 20-goal scorer with 127 points in 188 NHL contests, 46 of which have come on the man advantage.

The Flyers ditch Couturier’s contract to a team on the rise and the Flyers get a pair of prospects, an established winger and a first round pick in return.

Small Moves by Hammerwise

Here’s an interesting one featuring talent in favor of depth. The Leafs have been on the cusp of playoff success, but have yet to find any, that means this year’s run could be very important. They would essentially deal Nylander, who is a top six winger, for two solid depth pieces. It helps the Flyers clear out their logjam at forward while adding actual talent for a boring offense.

Big Trades by Thunderbird838

Gurianov is a 25-year-old forward with 214 NHL games under his belt and has registered 44 goals and 94 points in that time.

Ty Dellandrea is a 22-year-old forward and former 18th overall pick in 2018. He’s got just 27 NHL games to his name.

Joel Kiviranta is a 26-year-old depth forward who has just eight goals and 19 points in 93 NHL contests over parts of three seasons.

The Flyers would also acquire a (top five protected) 2023 first rounder.

In the endless pitches that feature Travis Konecny, this may be one of the higher-risk, higer-reward returns the Flyers could find. They’re three of the Stars’ talented younger players, but they don’t have a huge track record of success. Do the Flyers value more random depth players or do they look elsewhere for more of a home run trade for Teeks?

offseason by JJtrain

Here’s a big brain one for ya to once again test how much the fans hate Rasmus Ristolainen.

Ristolainen with $1 million retained would clock in at $4.1 million. That means both Ristolainen and Carlo are signed to identical deals for five more years at a $4.1 million cap hit. Carlo is perceived as the better defensive player, but Ristolainen historically has the superior offensive upside. The Flyers also give up a second round pick in 2025 for the upgrade; Surprisingly enough Fletcher hasn’t already traded that away.

One more Tre by Westerner69

Oliver Kylington is a 25-year-old offensive defenseman who registered 31 points in 73 games during his second full NHL season.

Jakob Pelletier is a 21-year-old forward prospect that made his jump to the professional level last season, posting 27 goals and 62 in 66 games in the AHL.

Dillion Dube is a 24-year-old winger whose point totals have increased during all four of his NHL seasons, climbing to 18 goals and 32 points in 79 games during 2021-22.

The Flyers give up both of their third rounders in 2023, already giving up their third third rounder in the Tony DeAngleo trade, but they snag an extra 2023 first round pick in return.

Stealing Jims Lunch Money by TheTypicalLeafsFan

Jake Oettinger is 23 years old and has just 77 NHL games under his belt, but he also has one of the best playoff series by a goaltender in the last 20 years during the Stars’ battle with the Flames during the 2022 postseason. His career 2.46 goals against average and .913 save percentage hint that he is on his way to a successful career.

Carter Hart is 24 years old with 146 games under his belt with a career 2.97 goals against average and .905 save percentage, numbers dragged down heavily because of the atrocious teams he was apart of the last two seasons.

Oettinger has three years left at a $4 million cap hit. Hart has two years left at a $3.9 million cap hit.

The Flyers get a goalie a year younger under contract for an extra season, and they free Carter Hart’s spirit by getting him out of the hell that is the goaltending crease in Philadelphia.
