Why Philadelphia Flyers should be Sellers at the Deadline

 The Philadelphia Flyers currently sit in last place in the Metropolitan division, so it would make sense for them to be sellers at the deadline, and trade away some of their players on expiring contracts, so they can start rebuilding. This is what the Philadelphia Flyers should do at this years' Trade Deadline.


A three-team trade is made between the Philadelphia Flyers, Colorado Avalanche, Ottawa Senators

Philadelphia Flyers get Alex Newhook, JT Compher, Jacob Bernard-Docker, Alex Formenton, 2023 1st round pick (from COL)

Colorado Avalanche get Claude Giroux

Ottawa Senators get Andre Burakovsky, Oskar Lindblom 

This trade sends Claude Giroux to the Colorado Avalanche, where he will get a chance to win a Stanley Cup. In exchange for Giroux, the Flyers get Alex Newhook, JT Compher, and a 2023 1st round pick from Colorado as well as a Jacob Bernard-Docker and Alex Formenton from Ottawa. To make the trade work cap-wise, the Senators receive Andre Burakovsky from the Avalanche and Oskar Lindblom from Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Flyers trade Rasmus Ristolainen to the Nashville Predators for Dante Fabbro, 2022 1st round pick, 2023 3rd round pick.

The Predators need to beef up their defense for the postseason, so a trade for Ristolainen makes sense;

on the flip side, the Flyers add a young defenseman in Dante Fabbro and a few picks.

Philadelphia Flyers trade Derick Brassard, Justin Braun to the Carolina Hurricanes for 2022 5th round pick, 2022 6th round pick, 5th round pick 2023.

The Hurricanes add more depth to the team for a deep postseason run, while the Flyers add a few more picks for some players who may not be on the team next year.

Philadelphia Flyers trade Keith Yandle, Nate Thompson to the St.Louis Blues for Oskar Sundqvist, 2022 4th round pick. 

The Blues add two veteran players, which gives them more depth for a deep playoff run, while the Flyers add Oskar Sundqvist and a draft pick.

C Sean Couturier -After missing 2+ years, Sean Couturier is back and it seems like he hasn't missed a beat. Believe it or not, Couturier has been one of the top centers in the league so far with his all-around play, putting up 2 goals, 3 assists, 2 PPP, 63 FW, 24 SOG, and 1 SHP. Despite showing that he is still an elite center, Couturier is only owned in 20% of fantasy leagues. Pick him up now, while you still can. Ryan Johansen - Serves as the Avalanche's 2nd line center and plays on their all-world 1st pp unit. Despite not being the player he used to be, Johansen is still a valuable fantasy asset because of the players he plays with. Johansen has 4 goals and 4 PPPs along with 63 FW so far this season. He is owned in 29% of fantasy leagues. Sean Monahan - Someone must have gotten a time machine and put Sean Monahan in it because he is playing like he was back when he was in his prime. Monahan has been arguably the best player on Montreal this year, with 3 goals, 6 points, 2 PP


Here are some players you should pickup in Fantasy Hockey, sorted by position. Center Colton Sissons Colton Sissons is one of the best 4th line centers in the league, but in fantasy hockey, he could be even more valuable than he actually is in real life because of what he provides in the peripheral categories. So far this season Sissions has 5 goals, 1 PPP, 1 SHP, 12 PIM, 20 SOG, 89 FW, 15 hits, and 9 blocks. This is a terrific stat line and although you can't count on Sissons scoring a ton, he will fill out the FW, Hits, and blocks usually. Sissons is owned in 6% of fantasy leagues, snag him up while you can. Nick Bjugstad Nick Bjugstad is having an excellent year so far with the Arizona Coyotes, in fact he has played so well that he earned himself a promotion to play on the 2nd line along with Mattias Maccelli and Lawson Crouse. Bjugstad also gets time on Arizona's 2nd PP unit and 2nd PK unit. Bjugstad may not be a name who stands out to casuals, but his fantasy stat line is

Fantasy Hockey Waiver Wire Goalies to Pickup

 Here are some goalies to pickup now in Fantasy Hockey: Semyon Varlamov Semyon Varlamov has been solid in net for the New York Islanders in the last month of the season; he has a 2-2 record with a 2.35 GAA, .927 SV%, and 153 Saves during that timespan. Even though Varlamov will only get a few starts with Ilya Sorokin there, he has proven to be a reliable backup when called upon. Varlamov is owned in 41% of Fantasy leagues, you should take a flyer on him if you need a goalie with a good GAA and SV%. Antti Raanta Antti Raanta has played great for the Carolina Hurricanes in the last month of the season; he has a 3-0 record with a 1.49 GAA and .946 SV% during that timespan. With Fredrik Andersen back, Raanta will be back in the backup role, but he has thrived in this role and should continue to do so. Definitely, pickup Raanta if you have Fredrik Andersen because he doesn't start every game. Philipp Grubauer Philipp Grubauer has been playing a lot better for the Seattle Kraken in the l
