Deal or No Deal- Would You Make This Trade? Vol. 15

As the 2022-23 NHL season reaches the halfway point, the trade deadline breaks on the horizon. For the Philadelphia Flyers, it could be a very interesting day. Both Flyers fans and fans from across the league are circling on a disaster of a roster and are crafting their ideal trade deadline scenarios using CapFriendly’s Armchair GM tool, so as usual, we went through and picked some of our favorite scenarios and brought them to you to vote on.

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

Philadelphia hockey team whos name we do not speak by Chasebrown44

The Boston Bruins may be the most dominant team in the NHL during the 2023-24 season, but there are plenty of uncertainties when it comes to what their roster will look like next season. They’ve only got four forwards under contract, both Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci may retire, and David Pastrnak could hit the free agent market as a pending UFA. It could make the Bruins a prime dumping ground for decent players on so-so contracts.

The Tony DeAngelo experiment in Philly hasn’t gone very well at all and it’s very possible they could look to deal the last year of his contract at a $5 million hit. He does have 23 points in 36 games, 10 of which have come on the powerplay, but hasn’t found the same success in Philly that he did lining up next to Jaccob Slavin in Carolina last year.

Hayes has three years left at a $7.1 million cap hit, though in this scenario the Flyers would retain $1 million of aav, bringing it down to $6.1 million on the Bruins’ books. He’s an all-star with 36 points in 40 games and would surely wave his M-NTC to go back to his hometown Boston Bruins.

The Flyers ditch $11.1 million in cap and get a first round pick in the loaded 2023 draft for doing so.

In Danny We Trust – PART ONE by PHILLYSZN

If 26-year-old defenseman Ivan Provorov is dangled by the Flyers in the trade market, the Detroit Red Wings could be a potential suitor for the Russian LHD.

Jake Walman is a 26-year-old left-handed defenseman who has just 99 career NHL games under his belt thanks to various injuries impacting his NHL career dating back to 2020-21.

The Flyers would gather a first round pick, but it’d be in 2024 rather than the prestigious 2023 slot, but would and a third rounder to replace the one they lost in the Tony DeAngelo trade.

This could very well be more the real life return the Flyers end up snagging for Provorov, so do you think it’s enough to move on from their top defenseman?

Starting an actual rebuild by DH28Hockey

27-year-old Sam Reinhart had a breakout campaign during his first season in Florida last year, recording 33 goals and 82 points in 78 games. His production is slightly lower this year, with just 12 goals and 27 points in 42 games, albeit the Panthers as a whole have not been the same force they were last year.

The Flyers take on the last year of Reinhart’s contract with a $6.5 million cap hit. If they sell a few other roster players, like Ivan Provorov, they can give the offense a desperately needed new piece.

The Flyers get a solid forward upgrade in the name of the Panthers salvaging some much needed cap space.

As the Ivan Provorov trade rumors heat up, teams are throwing their best suggestions and dealing him to a divisional rival leads to a decent price tag.

Adam Boqvist is a 22-year-old right-handed defenseman and former eighth overall pick back in 2018. He’s got 17 goals and 54 points through 138 career games. He recently made his return to the lineup after mssing most of the 2022-23 campaign with a broken foot.

Luca Del Bel Belluz is a 19-year-old center prospect who was a second round pick in 2022. He sits over a point-per-game pace in the OHL for the second consecutive season.

Jack Roslovic is a 26-year-old center who has struggled a bit this season for his hometown Columbus team, scoring just three goals and 20 points in 37 games. He’s got one more year left on his current deal at a $4 million cap hit before he hits unrestricted free agency during 2024.

The Flyers get a jolt to their main roster, addressing some holes at center and RHD plus a prospect for the future in exchange for Provorov. Is it enough?

Nuking it at the deadline by Patrickkane

This trade doesn’t make a ton of sense from the side of Vancouver, but it does pose an interesting question from the side of the Flyers.

Boeser does have 24 points in 32 games, but just eight goals, which is still relatively on pace for his typical 20-goal, 45-point season. He’s in desperate need of a change of scenery, and the Flyers are in desperate need of another offensive producer. Though, the Flyers are already filled with underwhelming middle six fowards, and considering Boeser has two years left on his current deal at a $6.65 million cap hit, can Philly afford to take on another?

The Flyers ditch pending UFA JVR and two nothing draft picks to take on an expensive rehab project.

i hate the flyers by neo87

There’s always one trade that makes me do a double take when perusing through CapFriendly and this was the most recent one to do so. There’s a portion of the fanbase that really dislikes Ivan Provorov for some reason, and this is a “highlight” of how low some seem to think his value is. Not only do the Flyers have to throw in a prospect to move Provorov, they also have to retain $3.375 million for the next two seasons to make it happen, and after all that, they only get a second round pick back from the Hurricanes.
