A NEW IMAGE IN PHILLY Written by Steve Tetreault - November 30th, -0001

After losing the division title to the Stanley Cup Winning New York Islanders, GM tetreault29 came to the conclusion that eventually a major shake up was needed in order to remain competitive and that trading was part of the solution. GM tetreault29 and Coach Brent Sutter tells the press how necessary it was, and still is, to bring the Philadelphia Flyers to a higher level of play.

Lets now resume the offseason trading so far:

 

The acquisition of Plekanec and kunitz for hartnell + vrbata + 2nd round pick was the major move by philly. 

"We are getting a playmaker in plekanec and his speed and DF play is also a major point along with his age" - tetreault29

They have sealed a number one 2nd line center for years and years to come since plekanec is only 25 years old.  He will support datsyuk offensively and defensively in critical situation.

Kunitz will bring strenght on a LW and has power to drive the net.  We intend to use him on the 2nd line with ruuttu on his RW.

In order to receive we have to give and we gave hartnell (a captain competitor) with great numbers however his displine was simply terrible.  hartnell got suspended in 5 of the last 7 games at the end of the season and cost us the division title.  Vrbata is a young gun that will make it well with L.A however we felt Perron and cherepanov could fil his shoes in 2 years from now.

 

Also we dealt our 1st pick 6th overall (st-louis pick) to pheonix for a prospect that we have been looking for for the last year in max pareciotty (a future powerforward) and also we gave a risky 2nd pick for alexi emelin.  For emelin  gm tetreault29 is convincing him to play NA next year but as we said early its the riskest trade we made this summer.

 

We gave away a 3rd pick to san Jose for defencemen Niklas Hjalmarsson.  we feel he could jump in the pros in 2 years along with gorges and bring a wind of youth at the blue line.

Now that the UFA will be open soon we feel perhaps we need 2 other players to elevate this team from real good to one of the top 8.  Stay tune for more information
