Before I go on, I’d like to preface this poll by saying this situation is purely hypothetical. I am not speculating that this might happen or suggesting it is a legitimate rumor. For the love of all that is good and holy, don’t read anything into it or claim that I said this might happen.
As rivals, the Flyers and Capitals make for unusual bedfellows but, this offseason, they could be a match. Washington has goaltending depth and a right-handed offensive defenseman, both rumored to be available. The Flyers have a surplus of centers and an alleged need for goaltending.
So, if you’re Paul Holmgren, would you pull the trigger on a trade that sent the frequently maligned Jeff Carter and Matt Carle for Mike Green (let’s discount the fact you might think he’s a douche) and another young goalie in Semyon Varlamov?
I have my own take on take on this situation but will share it later on. What do you think? How would you alter this trade to make it even?
