Idk why Columbus would even consider this. Jarmo has gone back to his old ways High IQ lasted for 12 hours. We'll see how it works in the future though.

Not sure why Columbus took the extra cap for an older and equivalent player at best.

If you're rebuilding, why are you doing this year Columbus?

Voracek is more expensive, but objectively much better, more consistent. And Atkinson's contract lasts longer.

I say Columbus wins, but it's close.

Massive W for Philly IMO. Atkinson is a good leader and is cheaper.

Don’t really understand this from Columbus perspective? Gonna make more trades and this helps make cap floor?

Imo it's a pretty fair deal. Voracek contract is shorter and he has produced more during last two years, but Atkinson is a bit cheaper.

Both teams are going through a core retool so it makes sense.

I feel like Columbus win this trade. Voracek is younger, has less term and has higher production.

Flyers. Get massive W for Ellis trade, then get dunked on for the Risto trade, then pick up another small W with this trade. What a wild ride.

1. Cam is older lol

2. Voracek is better for Laine and has overall been better the last 2 years

3. Atkinson contract is longer

Voracek is younger than Cam. Also Voracek has less term and has been really productive in his past 3 seasons, for me Columbus wins this deal.

Kind of a head scratcher for both teams. Flyers def needed someone who can score and Voracek is always a pass first player but Atkinson is a little older and longer term (albeit lower cap hit).

I think CBJ wins this as they are getting out of the contract a year earlier and helps them get to the cap floor. They could even retain salary and flip him after next year and probably get some return on it.

To value the best scorer I have and convince him to sign logn term with one of the best playmakers of this generation
