Interesting Fact: Flyers have signed 6 players to 61 years for $374.5 mill since 07, none of them will be playing for them next season.

 

Hilarious.  Makes you wonder how Homer still has a job.

I'm pretty sure the run to the finals in 2010 is the single only reason. I can't imagine what else, because it sure isn't his fiscal responsibility or wise decisions.

How about Damien Brunner from Detroit and Viktor Stalberg?

Wow that's insane, they're bleeding cash.

Wow...didn't realize Briere shot sub 7% last year. He'll fit right in!

 

On a more serious note, I'm warming up to the idea of adding him. Sure, he sucks at defense and takes a lot of silly penalties, but I believe he can still be a ~50 point guy that would look good on a line with Elias and Zajac. His shot rate didnt drop off it's just that he didn't get the bounces

Rask and Bergeron rumored to have re-signed in Boston, each for 8 years, Rask around $56M, Bergeron around $52-54M

The Flyers essentially print money.  Without a cap, they would probably be spending $100 mill/year in salary and would still be profitable.

I don't think so.  They're a top 10 revenue team, but I don't think they are this profitable.

I don't think there's a chance Brunner will leave Detroit.

That plus the fact they were able to trade/hide on LTIR forever most of the big-money deals. The ones they didn't haven't hurt them capwise either.

Langenbrunner, Palmieri and Gomez is going to be our third line.

Langenbrunner refused to waive a no-trade and sulked his way out the door. He won't be back. Palmieri was traded because he was HANDED a top 6 spot and according to coaches didn't do anything with it. Gomez could have been signed last season and the Devils

 

 

It's amazing how negative some people in this fan base are, even after Sunday's trade and Zubrus (and supposedly Elias) re-signing.

I'm not being negative, I'm being tongue in cheek.

Keep in mind though, Bobby Holik motored to NYR and was brought back so...

Would be disappointed if Briere is the only guy we bring aboard

Gerbe waived. Small young scorer.

 

He's good, but we've already got our Peter Dinklage

Nathan Horton visiting an NHL team/city today. He'll end up with a non-traditional hockey market I think. Wants quieter life

 

 

 

New Jersey is a quiet life right? :P

Gerbe is too small.

 

Plus he and Henrique would have to settle their differences :lol:
