Team: 2021-22 Philadelphia Flyers
Team Explanation
A lot of flexibility in this lineup. Of Course Reinhart can play wing, or be Center moving Hayes to 3rd line Center. Domi, LAughton of course have C/W flexibility that can be moved around. Farabee can play either side. A lot of ways to tinker with positional flexibility which we've seen AV loves to do.

Edmonton declines, they have no need for Hagg.

They just lost larsson. Hagg is a 7th dman, but he's a big body that delivers some hits, and on an occasion will outplay his 7th dman role and look like he belongs. Thought he's a cheap option to add more physicality to your defense.

I actually like this a lot. My only gripe is I think they need to try and keep Frost by any means necessary, would rather they use Brink+ instead

understandable. The rumor out there is Flyers are willing to offer Farabee + a pick. I'd rather Frost than Farabee at this point.

If Buffalo would take Brink instead I tend to agree with you about keeping Frost, but I doubt Chuck would. Brink was Chuck's draft pick. I feel like he's more married to Brink than Frost at this point being Frost is a Hextall pick. Not saying Chuck doesn't like Frost, but ego comes into play, and Chucks vision for Brink might outweigh his vision for Frost.

He's a lefty though. Edmonton has plenty of those.

That makes sense. Where did you see the rumor that Farabee and a pick was in play?

That second pair on defense is going to get absolutely shredded. Sanheim gets caught in the NZ too many times in no-mans land to pair him with Risto who has a less than impressive effort on the backcheck.

Fair, he played both sides in Philly, but I could see them more inclined to look for a right hander specifically, but Khaira can't be worth much more. I'm gonna keep it, but awknowledge maybe there is some additions or something needed to acquire Khaira's rights. Philly just needs an aggressive 4th line center and as I said I just though Edmonton needed a big bodied defenseman to plug and play around their pairings.

NRD was on Show today with others, and they mentioned Philly is in Reinhart talks heavily. Another person in the group, not NRD, said he heard Farabee + a pick was the word right now. NRD didn't back up the Farabee part, he just backed up that Philly was in on Reinhart.

Got it. I can see the Flyers picking up Reinhart tomorrow tbh. Farabee will NOT be going the other way though. Given his past moves in Philly, I have enough faith that Fletcher isn't that stupid

The Buffalo deal was rooted in what I've heard Philly is in on. They like both Reinhart and Risto. Apparently the whole league is much higher on Risto than analytics and fans. I don't disagree with your point, this is more just a type of move I could see. May even come as 2 separate moves. Just following rumored interest on that one.

I like Reinhart as a player and feel like that's a great add but sending a 21 year old who just put up 20 goals in 55 games plus a first sounds like way too much. Unfortunately I think Frost has to be in play for a deal like this to be made especially if they see Forester as a center in the NHL

Regardless of Foerster, wing or center, the addition of Reinhart makes Foerster's position irrelevant. No?

I think Frost being dealt is needed for this reason. Future after next offseason where we retain Coots/G/Farabee hopefully. And Foerster makes a move for Donskoi's spot up above, and we deal Donskoi or just let it play it. The best part of Reinhart is his C/W versaility, at worst we can always move him to Center and move Hayes to 3rd line Center.

Holland said he wasn't going to qualify Khaira, so you might be able to get him as a UFA next week. I have a suspicion that Holland is trying to avoid arbitration and will offer Khaira a 2-year deal July 28th, you'd probably have to go 2 x $1.5M to land him.

Yep, I did this team right before the Khaira news out of Edmonton. Don't feel like editing. HAhah
