Default Flyers Trade Nolan Patrick to the Flames

Philadelphia and Calgary hooked up for a quickie:

To Calgary:
2016 1st (Cal)
Derek McKenzie
Joni Tuulola

To Philadelphia:
Sean Couturier
Julien Gauthier
800k in cheese

We really wanted to improve on our bottom 6 before the playoffs. Couturier comes in to fill in at 3C. An upgrade on Glennie, who shifts down to replace MacKenzie. We're really excited to see if Couts can find some chemisty alongside Schwartz.
We hated giving up Gauthier in the Boedkker trade and are very happy to have the bid-bodied winger back with us.

Not a fan of giving up the 1st, but feel like this was a move that made sense.
I'll hate the move even more when Cheese drafts Patrick.

Thanks for the easy talks, Dayel! Always a true pleasure to deal with.
