The report states that the Flyers may be willing to part with Brayden Schenn, Matt Read, a prospect and a draft pick for Kane. The price is steep, and I doubt it’s worth it. The Flyers have been looking for wingers that can keep up with Giroux on the first line, and Kane certainly has that potential. But Schenn, Read, and more for Kane is just too much for Philadelphia. Schenn is the same age as Kane at 22, and is averaging more points per game than him this season. Read recently signed a 4-year extension, and is arguably the team’s 2nd best 2-way forward (the best being Sean Couturier). The Jeff Carter and Mike Richards trades were a couple of great ones for Paul Holmgren, as he received Jakub Voracek, Couturier, Wayne Simmonds, Schenn and Nick Cousins in return for his star forwards. This one could work out in Winnipeg’s favor the way those deals wound up benefiting the Flyers.
