Forgive me, I've been waiting two years to do that. I honestly have no idea what the Flyers are doing right now. It's like Paul Holmgren has gone on a 5-day binger. He's either A) Henry Hill in the last 30 minutes of Goodfellas or B) has something really clever up his sleeve. Fingers crossed for B.
Apparently we don’t want to kill off any of our always league-leading penalties.
I don’t get it either, we can’t field an NHL team right now.
That being said, all these moves… I smell something MAJOR by Saturday. The Stamkos rumors may not be so far off after all- and prospects like Schenn and Couterier may be the kind of package Tampa would need to give up Stamkos rights before free agency begins.
I’m sure it’s B. Although Powe is a good player, especially on the Penalty kill, he would is due a raise this season and the Flyers would not have been able to oblige. Hopefully Homer is just creating more space for July 1st.
It better be B. I can’t take much more of this!!!!
and there goes the PK…
Well our PK without Pronger wasn’t doing much anyway. Here’s hoping for B….
I’m gonna try out for the Flyers.
at least they are all going to Western conference teams
Centers? We don’t need no stinkin’ centers!
It won’t be B, at least not in the way people are hoping. Nodl’s cap hit was actually LESS than it was before (because of previous 2-way and bonuses) at 845k, and Sestito was likely cheaper than Powe’s demands.
We’ll use some of the cap space to get contracts for Voracek and Simmonds, and then we still a crappy 6th D-man before splurging ~$4 million on a forward. Could just be Leino, could be someone else. Won’t be Brad Richards or Stamkos.
At least, logically. But this IS Holmgren we’re talking about.
Stop with the Stamkos talk please…it’s not happening…just like how Peyton Manning isn’t going to sign with the Eagles, Stamkos is not coming to Philadelphia.
When asked for comment on the Flyers’ recent flurry of moves, Tom McCarthy simply responded, “GONE! HOW ‘BOUT THAT?”
They’re not resigning Carcillo either. I’m starting to thing the Stamkos rumors are true.
No Richards,or Stamkos, come on guys ….its just to free up to sign Leino and probably someone like Tim Conolly.
Couldnt Afford POWE…. WE HAVE SIX MILLION IN CAP SPACE WE COULD SIGN EVERYONE ON THE FUCKING TEAM BACK! WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON…..
Yes I screamed that… sorry I had too…
C) None of the above; get ready for another “rebuilding”, AKA another decade+ of substandard performance and early exits in the playoffs or not reaching the play-offs at all.
hahahah the Tom McCarthy comment is awesome
We’re complaining about a guy who helped lead the SIXTEENTH BEST PK. A big part of that was probably Pronger, but I was getting sick of tired of watching Powe get poke-checked from behind and fail to clear the puck on the PK.
Nice topic and post, as we were just talking about what things can happen in the medicine industry.
