<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Zubrowka</b></div><div>Took your advice, and bumped it up to a third. The premise with the Yotes dealing anyone like Demers is how badly burned they were with injuries last year. It really killed their season. They may want to shed salary of injury risk players (who are still marketable) in favor of UFA forward signings or trades to address their scoring woes. I'm convinced they will do this with someone regardless of whether the Flyers partner with them in a trade. .</div></div>

It definitely makes sense, but I'd think they'd want fair value for Demers so the better pick is probably more realistic. Plus, there's definitely going to be competition to get him as you mentioned so a 3rd over a 4th probably makes this deal more attractive to the Yotes. That being said, if all it would take is a fourth and Hagg then I'm sure plenty of us will drive Hagg to the airport lol.

Fair though I have two thoughts there:

1. I don't expect them (or see a reason to) carry 8 defensemen.
2. Sending him down opens up more cap space to either use later on in the year or use now to bring in another forward in the event that they don't think Frost is NHL ready.

There's a good amount of space without sending AMac to the AHL, but sending him to the Phantoms should give you like 2-3M more to play with. I'm not sure if someone jumps out as an ideal candidate, but it gives you more flexibility to improve the roster.

Also, the Phantoms are likely going to need some bodies on defense IIRC; none of the European skater prospects are coming over from what I've seen so they only have 4 or 5 defensemen heading into next season as of now. That could obviously change, of course.
