Not surprising - he wants to play with Tavares.

I seriously doubt he stays unless he takes a STEEP discount. Not just a half million to a million less per year than market value.

Or we can wait until the press conference on July 1 or 2 from the non-Ontario-based Team that signs him.

JT is not going to TO. Two max contracts doesn't work. Ask the Blackhawks. This is and should be Mathews team. Get some decent D and let your young guys mature. Besides Taveres is overrated. He will the second best Center on the Isles in a year or two. Barzel is the real deal. If the Isles can keep them both and you have a Crosby/Malkin or Kuzy/Backstrom deal that can win Cups.

I'm trying to settle a dispute and I need some help from some people that actually know hockey. Are the following two trade scenarios realistic? Would either of these teams do this? I'd appreciate some feedback and details on why not this could happen.

1. Flyers trade RW Wayne Simmonds to the Chicago Blackhawks for G Corey Crawford. Straight up one for one trade.

2. Flyers trade RW Wayne Simmonds to the Dallas Stars for D Julius Honka.

So you want another average goalie or a d man when we are stacked with d? Your joking right? With simmonds your return is greater then what Boston got for Lucic. Another d? No thanks. Either way horrible trade ideas and simmonds isn’t going anywhere

Lol average goalie? Crawford is at least a top 10 goalie when he's on his game. Not to mention he's got 2 rings... Honka was one of the best defenseman prospects in the world going into last year. Philly would do both of the deals in a second. Chicago and Dallas would just laugh. Two middle of the pack teams trading for a rental?

Get him for $6 X 5 and it's a deal. Swing a trade for Nylander for a good young defenseman and it's doable. Carolina is a good place to start.

I would NOT trade Simmonds in either deal.

Crawford has Vertigo issues, and Honka isn't good enough.

Why would anyone trade for any of those bloated contracts from Chicago? Good, acomplished players but Crawford, Toews and Seabrooke are past their primes and in no way worth the salaries. 3 Stanley Cups are amazing, toast of the league for close to a decade, let them suffer with those contracts.

Why not trade Simmonds to the Leafs; Crawford has vertigo and is past his prime, Honka is an undersized D-man, doesn't seem to fit the Philly mold of strong/big/fast.

Simmonds to the Leafs for Connor Brown, Garret Sparks and Calle Rosen
