They're definitely not trying to get all three. Why would they even try to get all 3 when two are RW's? At most, they'd get one of the RWs and then stop contact for the other and go after Bouwmeester. I'd guess they really would be going for Bouwmeester or none, considering the circumstances.
But no harm in doing your due diligence and talking to teams about all 3.

JayBo would be your biggest need. That said, with the return Feaster got for Iggy, he has to get a huge return for him to make up for the first and two mid tier prospects. Holmgren better be prepared to be bent over if he wants JayBo.
"As long as he keeps his nourishment up -- and he should since he's not wired shut -- he should be good to go in three to four weeks," said David Dattilo, director of oral and maxillofacial surgery for West Penn Allegheny Health System.

"Whoever’s trying to kill me isn’t getting the job done. But one day, I’m going to punch that f___r in the face."
Well, Feaster is a fool. After taking a look at what he got for JayBo - he ought to be canned. Sure, he got a first round pick, but two prospects worse than what he got for Iggy.
Flyers now being linked to several names, including Vanek, Ryan, Yandle and Jagr. There is also rumors swirling about Erik Johnson becoming available for the right price.
In a perfect world, the Flyers would acquire a top flight winger like Vanek or Ryan without giving up Couturier in the deal, and then they could turn around and move him in a package for a defenseman like Yandle or Johnson. Wishful (fantasy hockey/video game) thinking I know but I can dream and if their minor league teams weren't so talent-deficient, then I would say that there could be a remote chance that those events could happen.

Jagr to the Bruins for two prospects and a draft pick.
Flyers, among other teams, are showing interest in G Ben Bishop. Asking price is a player and a pick.
Flyers are targeting the wrong Ottawa goalie. Lehner is the guy to get.
I think Shero is done, but I wouldn't mind seeing them move TK for some picks. He looked lost out there last night with Duper and Kunz.
Move B. Bennett to that line, as he played some center in the juniors. Definitely more upside than having TK out there missing passes and taking bad shots.
You have to give to get. You can't give up garbage like Shelley and Gustaffson to get Vanek or McGinn and a fifth rounder to get Ryan. You have to part with primary assets - high picks and your lone two good prospects in your system - Laughton and maybe Cousins.
I have no idea why Phoenix would take Couturier in a deal for Yandle. Which Couturier do you get? The good one last year; or the lousy one this year. I understand he is still young. Keith is 26 years old; has been in the league a while and is an all-star. Phoenix already has Couturier on its roster. His name is Martin Hanzal. Hanzal is a big body; is very good defensively and has more offensive skill than Couturier.
I don't think you have the pieces for any of the names you mention.
I don't think he is done. Was talking to a buddy of mine two days ago. Think he might add to the fourth line and I told my friend Boyd Gordon from Phoenix would be a perfect fit. His name is all the sudden has been linked to the Penguins, if Phoenix is selling. I can see one more MINOR deal.
I think Couturier has more value than you seem to think.
But I still agree with the premise of your argument. Flyers probably wont make any big deals.
You were right about Shero not being done. Being reported Jussi Jokinen for a conditional draft pick.
TK is awful........ Nothing else needs said. He should not even be close to being on the 1st line. Obviously it's by default right now, but there has to be a better option.
Don't mind this deal at all. He is a former 30-goal scorer. You give up a sixth or seventh pick. He is very good at face-offs and can score goals. This tells me Kennedy and Vitale are on limited time with Pittsburgh. I'd move Kennedy right now for a fourth or fifth round pick since Pittsburgh won't qualify him in the offseason as an RFA.
Shero was smart not claiming Jokinen a week ago. Now, Carolina has to pay some of his salary for next year.
Well, dumbass Eklund is reporting Pittsburgh is in on Yandle. What a retard he is.

He does...there is a reason that almost all trade talks with the Flyers involve Couturier. Other GMs know he will be a good one in time and are hoping the Flyers show their typical impatience and trade him already. All but a handful of guys from Couturier's draft class aren't even in the league yet. He just needs a few more years to see what he can really do.
There are more than a handful of guys in the NHL right now from his draft. I counted 13 that have played at least a game in their careers. Nine of the top 10 are fixtures in lineups.
He's the link. I saird a handful, there are 11 other players that have played at least 20 games....out of 211 players. Which kind of proves my point that players at his age aren't even in the league yet, none then less 100 games worth of experience. Other than the top 4 picks, the only other guys I'd say are probably clearly better than Couturier right now are Brodin and Dougie Hamiltion. I'd say he still has pretty damn good value. I'd love to see what he could do if he didn't play mostly 4th line minutes.

Looks like Tampa Bay just traded for Ben Bishop from Ottawa. Between him and Lindback they've probably given up a number of quality assets for these guys. I was really hoping the Flyers would grab him though so they could buyout Bryz.
You'd be very lucky to get a 4th or 5th for that turd Kennedy. He's stunk since he signed his last contract. i wouldn't give you a bag of pucks for that stiff
Steve Mason to Flyers. Yipee.
On a funny note, Columbus took Leighton and third for Mason. Who the hell wants Leighton? I guess they need a backup in net now, but Leighton is such trash.
Bob McKenzie @TSNBobMcKenzie 5m
NYR trade Gaborik to CBJ for Brassard, John Moore, Dorsett and 6th round pick. #tradecentre
They only took Leighton because with Mason gone, they don't really have a backup for the rest of the year. I hate giving up a 3rd for Mason. Maybe if his contract was a little better but he's an RFA this summer and is coming off of a 2.9 million cap hit. Hopefully they can convince him to sign for significantly less for next year.
Yeah, I'm not a huge fan. Hopefully buyout Bryz, sign mason at a low number as a backup and make a move for another goalie. Maybe Hextall will unretire.

#mnwild has acquired Jason Pominville. Larsson and Hackett going the other way. Hear this trade could include high draft picks, too
