Team Explanation
Just having fun with this one. Anything is possible with a new GM coming in to Philly.

1) Philly and St. Louis shake things up to turn their fortunes around. The Blues get a star winger in Voracek to round out the top 6 plus a top 4 upside defenseman in Hagg while the Flyers gain a partner for Provorov in Parayko while taking on the struggling Jake Allen with 2 additional years left on his deal, hoping the change of scenery does the trick.

2) The Oilers procure scoring wingers in Simmonds and Weal, a 1st rounder and a veteran defense-man while the Flyers fill the 3C hole with RNH.

How far off are these deals in value? Do they make sense for both teams? Or are they non-starters because of the players involved? Is taking on Allen pure madness? Discuss!

I like this if the Blues make other moves to strengthen the D. With the team we have now we cant afford to lose Parayko and have too many wingers.

Seems like Philly would trade Voracek because of his attitude and his soft play. Not really helpful to the Blues, who are a mess right now in terms of bad attitude and soft play. Not saying we need grit and grind, but we need a hard-nosed guy that can set the bar for work ethic if we're moving a core piece. I'd be thinking about Konecny.

Sounds like a trade Chiarelli would do.

Or even go for Simmonds.
