Default Philly Moves Matthews to the Mountains.

In an effort to trade every pick I drafted from the 2016 draft, the Flyers have traded Auston Matthews.

To Colorado:
Auston Matthews

To Philly
Mark Scheifele
Alex Turcotte
K'andre Miller

We had lots of messages about Matthews, and rightfully so. Even though this sim is made by a few Quebecers who love the Habs, no bias was placed on the Maple Leafs superstar when it comes to this league, where he is an absolutely dominating force...

Until the playoffs...where he disappears. Another disappointing playoff exit had Flyers fans furious and demanding change. We knew a dynamic shakeup had to be made. We received many offers containing mystery boxes that might turn into boats, but wanted a clear cut top 1C in return and received that in Mark Scheifele,. GMJD is excited to see how he fits in between Ehlers and Kaprizov.

We had another great offer tabled that brought in more youth but left him in the East, whcih we wanted to avoid. The West is absolutely stacked with top line C's including Petterssen, Eichel, MacKinnon, Kopitar and Draisaitl, just to name a few and Matthews instantly boots the Avs compete level and keeps him far away from us.

Turcotte and Miller are both great additions that help ensure the future of the Flyers organization is bright.

This one was fun to hammer out. Thanks to Pat for the deal.

Fear not, Flyers faithful. Another big move is expected to be finalized today that sees Elias Lindholm shipped out as well.

From the Avs perspective we needed a shake up. We under achieved bad last season so we instantly made significant changes to mix up the roster.

Bringing in one of the top young talents was a rare opportunity. We felt the Avs didn’t have a game changer who can take over a game on our roster. After multiple attempts to acquire Mackinnon from 3 GMs and unsuccessful we had to jump at the opportunity of Matthews.

The Avs have brought in Matthews, Bertuzzi, Demko and Backlund but are certainly not finished revamping this roster.

Everyone is available. Looking for value and/or hockey deals.

The great thing about having a superstar is the frustration that half you team out scores him
