Hayes was a consistent go to bring up for you when expressing your disgust over the JT Miller acquisition

And Bloob, he was a UFA. UFA Negotiation rights are never expensive. There’s no comparing the two trades. Completely different circumstances. Unless you wished Benning had traded for the right to negotiate with UFA Hayes instead of trading for Miller?
It was comparing adding a top six forward to the team. Miller is a better player on a better contract. The Flyers didn’t pay a pretty penny in acquisition cost to get Hayes. They didn’t have a bunch of bloated contracts on their books like Vancouver did so they could afford to overpay Hayes.

I like Miller but I like to keep high picks as well. The pipeline is a still thin in some areas.

And why was that Blob? Why was it so cheap to acquire a player who ended up getting $7 Million per year for 7 years?

So Blob would rather roll the dice, keeping the pick and hoping a Sourdiff, HOPING! He will be as good as Miller :lol:

Who cares? Why are you so concerned about Hayes?

You a Flyers fan now?

We already went through this. I initially did , then I slowly came around on it. Do we need a full rehash? I did say Miller was a good target and a good player right off the hop.

Or are you still wishing for a crack at 17 year olds Sourdiff or Zary instead?

Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

St. Louis Blues
Troy Brouwer and Jamie McGinn will join the Blues this week on professional tryouts.
Blues sign Brouwer, McGinn to professional tryouts
Former Blue Troy Brouwer and Jamie McGinn have signed professional tryout contracts with the St. Louis Blues.
They don't mess around when it comes to depth, I guess.
