I wish we were closer to a Cup, but we are not. Some fine young core players need more synchronized support next year. I propose a few significant changes to the Flyers lineup. I. Trade Coburn, Couterier, Morin and a # 1 to Nashville for Weber and Fisher. 2. Trade Schenn brothers and Rinaldo to Winnipeg for Kane and Buflygien. 3. Sign free agents Cammilieri and Montoya. 4. Depart with Emery, Downie, Hall, Timmonen and Gill (offer Kimmo job as Asst. coach for defense). Your roster next year looks like this: Giroux with Jake and Kane; Vinny with Simmonds and Cammilieri; Laughton with Read and Hartnell; Raffl with Fisher and McGinn. Defense pairs are Weber with Shane G; Buff with MacDonald; Streit with Grossman. Goalies are Mason and Montoya.
This new structure adds speed, offensive punch and defensive strength. A well balanced and synchronized team that can go all the way for many years.
