There are three other teams in this town, and, right now, they’re all an embarrassment to some degree… but that won’t stop us from talking about them.
Flyers: This may be the most meta Paul Holmgren statement ever. He’s basically lying about a report that he claims is a lie— that Dan Cleary has agreed to a three-year, $8.25 million deal:
General manager Paul Holmgren confirmed on Tuesday that Dan Cleary will be at the Flyers’ camp Thursday on a tryout contract. However, Holmgren said no deal was in place, as was reported by the Detroit Free Press. “There are no promises. It’s just like the Hal Gill (contract),” he said.
The article in the Detroit Free Press predicted as much, saying that Cleary’s contract won’t be official until the end of the month because the Flyers are currently over the cap.
Phillies: Their 2014 schedule is out and they’ll open the season in Texas, against the Rangers because rivalry.
Sixers: Want to be the Sixers social media correspondent for one day and Tweet about moose, confetti and the New Jersey Devils? Now’s your chance!
