Flyers, Preds bloggers react to trade

Travis Hughes over at Broad Street Hockey asks whether this move could be a signal of things to come?

Coburn could be left unsigned. Hamhuis would then replace him, and well, despite Coburn’s resurgence in the postseason, that’d be a nice trade off. He’s a restricted free agent, so the Flyers would get some compensation. Another trade could be in the works. The Flyers could be attempting to move an expensive forward, someone like Jeff Carter or Scott Hartnell, perhaps. The deals might not be done just yet, and if that is the case, well… we can’t predict that at all, obviously.

Over at the Predators blog, On The Forecheck, Dirk Hoag reminded fans that the deal wasn’t about getting equal value for Hamhuis.

In this situation, it’s not about trying to obtain equal hockey value in trade for Hamhuis, but at least getting something back into the organization. Clearly, the Predators believe there’s still potential for Parent, and his left-handed shot could prove a nice complement to guys like Kevin Klein and Cody Franson.
