If the Flyers get Nash, they will have significantly upgraded their offense since ridding themselves of Richards and Carter and thus will have shown they may have had a plan all along. Nothing makes up for signing Bryz of course.

Their goaltending is back to where it always was really, 2 goalies to equal one. Injury issues, Brzy gives them no salary flexibility and Both Grossman and Kubina are UFA's at seasons end.

They're only like 150k over the cap once you take their LTIR into account, so they'll just send a guy down, I imagine.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

I think Holmgren might be off his rocker " So we've got Kubina to Philly for 2012 2nd (from FLA) and 2013 4th as the deal... but word on Philly is another deal pending." Per TFP

Not that I should care, but do they need Nash? Offense isn't their problem.

I just saw a tweet on HFboards that said the Blue Jackets are pushing for a deal for Nash more than the Flyers.

i can see that. the flyers can definitely set the Blue Jackets up with a promising youth

The Cryers announcers were saying they haven't been able to put together a string of wins in over a month now.
Their 1st,2nd,3rd lines look pretty solid on paper but I think the team as a whole is just undisciplined.

Ok but why? Homer had to have known when he took on so much youth for Carter and Richards that his team was a few years from winning a Cup.. The fact that he seems to be wanting to deal that youth for a Cup now is borderline nuts

I don't know if they would have been a few years from winning if Pronger didn't get hurt. With the way their offense has played, they would have been right there with any team if they had Pronger to shield their shaky goalies.

prongers retirement



Not to change the thread here, but I hear things are very bad in the Pronger's house. His vision is semi-blurry all the time, his headaches are constant, and he's afraid it won't go away. I never liked the guy really, but his career is almost certainly over and his recovery, if it comes, may take years. I feel bad for his wife and kids, and him to a lesser extent. I have to keep reminding myself he's still a good 14 years younger than I am and he can't even drive to Shoprite to get stuff for dinner.

Even if the Cryers get Nash they will still have goaltending issues and their defense will still continue to be suspect even with the additions of Grossman and Kubina.

The Rags, Bruins, us and even the Pens (moreso with Crosby if he ever comes back) are better than they are.
