If the rumor I heard is true from someone in the Flyers front office that they are looking to trade Esche, Sim and Savage for Weight to free up the necessary cap space then the trade would look good as long as Clarke can pry a better back-up goalie for Nitti, but from what I’m told the Blues would like Handzus back and that wouldn’t be good, unless of course the Flyers could cash in on this rumor that keeps floating around the Clarke is talking to Keenan about Luongo which would probably put them over the top, but after beating Ottawa and then squeaking by Pittsburgh and with Primeau seeing a concussion specialist to determine why he is still getting dizzy, I think Clarke will take a wait and see attitude until this current 11 game road trip is over before deciding to push the button when he is able to do so. Beside Weight will probably still be there come playoff push time!

The feeling is that this may not be post-concussive syndrome. I hope they are right; while Forsberg is the most talented guy on the team, Primeau is more tenured on the team than Forsberg and brings leadership and fire to the lockerroom. With Handzus filling Primeau’s role of late, I am worried they are running Handzus into the ground before New Years. I think I would look in a different direction, before considering bringing on Doug Weight if they need to replace Primeau long term.
