    Where's​ the upside for PHI in this trade?

    It's a way to add two high end forward talents (of course its not the only way) with one being more of a sure thing.

    On the other hand, I think they're bad deals if Drouin is really looking for $6mil

      I think banking on the 14th to be a player comparable to the bluechip level of the dprospect we'd likely have to send back is a big gamble.

        I assume we're not getting as high a quality player at 14 (obviously you never know, but it's more likely than not the player at #2 will be better).

          With the great luck of the lottery I think the chance to be able to draft a center that could potentially supplant giroux is more important than a trade involving Drouin. As far as a trade that doesn't involve the 2nd overall pick, I'd rather not trade Gostisbehere or one of the D prospects until the team gets a look at more of the prospects play in the NHL to have a better idea of what they're dealing with for asset management. Everyone will be kicking themselves a few years from now if Ghost keeps churning out 50+ point seasons for another team, Morin turns out to be a 6th Dman, Sanheim is a total bust, and Myers career gets derailed by multiple concussions before even getting to the NHL.

            I'd give up the #2 and any defenseman for Drouin. He is that good. He will pack the building every night.

              So if we add Drouin...how do we make the cap work...the flatlined cap??

              Wayne Simmonds needs a new contract for the 2019-20 season...
              A lot of the kids will need bumps in salary too...

              Drouin feels like a Veruca Salt move....

              ...patience is still a good thing

                If Simmonds shows any signs of decline in his contract year and the team is going to the playoffs it might make sense to let him walk at the end of the deal. He's going to be 31 and probably looking for a contract comparable to Lucic or even higher. His agent really didn't do him any favors having him signed through his prime at the number he's at.

                  You think Drouin is going to be so far above Patrick / Hischier that you'd also give up whatever defenseman Tampa wants? Even Provorov?

                  No thanks, I'll roll the dice on whichever guy NJ doesn't take + the defenseman I get to keep. Tampa would gladly take a dman of their choosing the and #2 pick for Drouin.

                    Certainly possible, but a big if. Likely that Simmonds gets re-upped well before the contract runs it's course...

                    Tho it does make one wonder about the talk of trading Simmonds earlier this offseason...
