Team Explanation
Taking another stab at this. Thanks to Blues and Oilers fans for their feedback on the last go around.

Re: Howard from the Wings. TSN was saying Holland wants a 1st for Howard. Seems excessive for a rental, even though he's playing well. Holland has dealt a goalie for conditional picks to the Flyers recently, however. Perhaps that bridges the gap here and gets a deal done.

Only if Simmonds signs a cost effective extension with St. Louis.

PHI better off including Allen in the Parayko deal as he and Eliotte in a tandem have proven success but more importantly you'd have all 3 New Brunswickers who have chemistry in Couturier(f) , Allen(g) and Meyers (d). (if nothing else you'd increase the amount of tourists traveling to see games in PHI)

add Neuvirth ,1st and a 2nd to the Parayko deal and i think STL pulls the trigger .

Allen may struggle in STL now but in PHI with your offense , defense and physicality i think he'll play well with the man who helped him turn Pro Brian Eliotte .

You can just look at the stats. The Flyers are 21st in goals for, the offense isn't exactly a strength for this team. Some games they get all cylinders clicking and look great and then large stretches they can't even complete a pass to one another. They are not a physical team as they have been in the past and didn't have their first fight until 11/21. They are 9th in hits per game but I can tell you they aren't those hard hits that make a player thing twice about making a play The defense to be put kindly is a "work in progress". Provorov and Ghost seemed to have regressed or just have zero confidence and you have guys like MacDonald and Folin out there getting pretty regular minutes. The defensive core has the potential to be great in a few years when a few dead weight players are done and some of these younger guys get more experience. So while you may respect your bosses opinion I watch nearly every game as well and his opinion on the Flyers having a strong offense and defense is clearly wrong and the standings/stats show it.

How's that for offering something to the conversation?
