Trade Winds A Blowin'

Per TSN:

No. 3 - Philadelphia prospect James van Riemsdyk. The University of New Hampshire forward, picked second in 2007, has been linked to Atlanta in a deal that would see a goalie going to the Flyers.

No. 2 - Thrashers goalie
Kari Lehtonen is of interest to the Flyers. If Atlanta GM Don Waddell continues to rebuild, swapping Lehtonen for a prospect such as Van Riemsdyk would have to be seriously considered.

NO way! That kid is going to be sick. I've been reading about him for some time. Also, he is huge and a scorer. Damn. We'll see.

American too.

He might be the Bobby Ryan of 09-10, but I think the important question to ask here is this: Will he be as good a top-six forward as Chris Thorburn?

P.S. Shooter, your mention of "trade winds" has made long for Caribbean sugar cane and breezy beaches and slaveships. Ah, spring can't be too far away.

And Buffett in April. I'd trade Kari Lehtonen just for that.
