Fair deal. Bergevin is going to have a busy Draft.

Good deal, but we need something better if we're going to compete with the deadline acquisitions that other metro teams are making.

Not expecting any big trades for the Flyers, gives the 4th line a good defensive center who comes off the books next year.

Good guy with speed, face-off skills and experience. I'm surprised, he didn't get more interest than that. Win for PHI.

Solid deal for both teams.

Bergevin trades a 4th for 2 fifth and 12 months of Nate Thompson. Fair.

His age is irrelevant because of his speed.

We could had hope for a bidding war. EDM? PIT? COL? So many teams need bottom 6 centers.

wish i knew a team out there with a plethora of late round picks available that could use a PK that is an amazing FO guy so that they don't need to use Zach Hyman as a PK C

He's not a bottom 6 center. He's a 4th line center. He's 35 YO regardless of his speed. You can lose that in 6 months.

Thompson's an okay 4th line center. Value's about fair for both teams.

Great pickup for the Flyers. Thompson is the perfect 4th line C and a real character guy.

I honestly don't think MB would've traded him if Evans didn't prove he was ready.
