    I don't think the Caps would want Neuvirth's Cap Hit as a backup so the Flyers would probably have to retain up to 50% to make that deal work. The Caps could do better for Grubauer than taking the Flyers junk drawer. A second (no conditions) and Neuvirth 50% retained gets that deal done.

    The Flyers are overpaying for Drouin here especially at that cap hit to sign him. The Flyers could make a better salary cap trade for players with better contracts and get prospects for Simmonds. Long story short, I'm not sold on Drouin as a $5 million player.


    The Caps wouldn't be getting any of those players. Those players would go to VGK in return for the RFA Rights to Grubaur, whom they drafted via the Expansion Draft.

    What's not to like about Jonathon Drouin? He was a 20+ goal scorer and can make dimes of passes. He is an extremely offensive player with fantastic hands and excellent on-ice-vision. He is pure.

    Obviously I glanced over the whole expansion draft selection of Grubauer by Vegas and the subsequent trade. I still don't think Grubauer gets to Vegas. The Caps will move him.

    Drouin would be a luxury. The Flyers already have a similar type player in Konecny. I'd rather look to move Simmonds to strengthen another position than wing. His value is very high right now probably as high as it every will be.


    Per the Expansion Draft Rules, you must have one signed goaltender exposed in the Expansion Draft. By moving Philip Grubauer, that means the Washington would be forced to expose Braden Holtby.

    We have no incentive to trade Simmer rn. If you want to move a player who's value will never get higher in Philadelphia, move Bradyen Schenn for Marcus Kruger, Ryan Hartman, and a 20219 2nd round pick
