Go ahead, ignore that we signed Zajac in your whining about how other teams do it better. You're right, we should trade Clarkson for a 6th rd pick in case we lost him for nothing because wooo, a 6th rd pick is soooo great. The chance of re-signing Clarky is worth WAYYYY more than a 6th rd pick.

 

lol its one thing to have different point of view and opinions. some people got what i meant but they are just not agreeing with me, thats fine.

 

but man if you still simply dont understand what i really meant and said after all my re-post and detailed explanations of my whole point of view... man 5th grade must have been hell for you. Again, youre off and thats not what i said.

 

same with me its not that i dont "understand" what you guys are telling me, i simply don't agree with it at all.

No, you said, explicitly that you thought it would be worthwhile to trade Clarkson's rights. Is the chance to sign Clarky worth more than a 5th-6th rd pick to you?

You also made a point that other teams signed big players, so I made the point that you were ignoring the Zajac signing to bolster your argument.

If you want to discuss this further, try not saying team x,y and z did this, but we didn't, while ignoring the fact that we actually did do what those teams did. You just don't want to admit it.

Anyone have a good list of RFA's that are likely to not be re-upped? Things are going to start happening quick now. Now that that silly trophy ceremony is over I'm ready to officially begin the 2013-2014 festivities.

Could we get a mod to pull out the Sterio fights with the entire board section of this thread?  I know I'm just as guilty as everyone else, but this is getting ridiculous.

D'Agostini, Mueller, Blum, Halischuk, Theo Peckham, that's a good place to start.  There isn't really a big name, but I bet some former prospects will also come free.

No its not worth it of course. But again, thats not what i said. 

 

But whole point is i think Lou "could potentially" be missing good opportunities by restricting himself talking to players 100% strictly after the season and not during the season. Each case is different and should be handled differently somewhat of course. But again by refusing to do certain things just cause you want to stick to your way, it could potentially prevent you having something good happening to you. 

 

so yes we still havent had Lou discussing contract during the season (from what we heard and from reports supporting it)

zajac signed before the season, i assumed they we're talking before that and im really glad he did it cause thats off his plate now and he knows he has his top line center set for the next season. Not knowing if you'd get clarkson, elias + zajac could have been bad. But im glad of the way Lou handled that one. But it still doesnt affect anything that i said. Cause it's not about what happened with this guy and this guy, Lou actually has a great track record of re-signing his players. All and 100% of my focus is on the way he's doing it not setting himself in the best position and gambling a lot more than he has to. Thats all.

 

so basically i'm not ignoring anything there. 

Could we get a mod to pull out the Sterio fights with the entire board section of this thread?  I know I'm just as guilty as everyone else, but this is getting ridiculous.

 

 nvm im done anyway. its getting ridiculous at this point. its fine that we don't agree but its another one that some are missing my point completely, simply useless to even talk about it more.

 

and to everyone im actually very sorry, i dont mean to be an a$$hole, hated or just to argue to piss off others. I just firmly believe in what im saying and most of my points are not coming across real well or we simply don't agree. We're all Devils fans here, we shouldnt fight like that all the time i figure.

Byz is a goner.  Poor guy, think he's a decent goalie but just couldn't handle the heat in Philly.

I haven't spent the time to read all of the background on this disagreement but the main point Sterio seems to be making is that Lou needs to be a bit more progressive in his approach to free agents which I would agree with.  I understand that Lou believes the players need to focus on playing during the season but I don't think there's any argument that he's limiting his own options with respect to re-signing the player by waiting until the offseason to do deals.  Regardless of moving rights for a pick, I have yet to see the harm in at least discussing the framework of the type of a deal a player would be looking for.  We obviously don't know everything that happens behind the scenes but we've certainly heard enough players come over at different times over the years to say that there had been no contact at all about a new deal with a tone that seemed somewhat miffed if not frustrated by it.  There were a couple of posts by Guilitti this season where Elias seemed to be begging to discuss a new deal sooner rather than later.

 

Since the 2005 lockout, Lou has been a middle of the pack GM at best.  His ways of doing business, including player management, should certainly not be above questioning like it might have been in 2002.  

 

On a side note, I've seen a lot of people speculate that Lou had a few deals in place and was waiting to announce after the finals ended?  I have my doubts about that but I've admittedly been somewhat pessimistic about the direction of this franchise since last off-seasons debacle.   For anyone that thinks Elias, Zubrus or Clarkson already have a deal in place, when should we expect some news because I'm dying for something?    

 

Edit:  haha, looks like I'm late as usual to add my .02 cents

"As such, the Flyers will pay Bryzgalov approximately $1.643 million per year for the next 14 years to not play for them."

My info in a previous post was off.

 

According to the CBA

 

http://cdn.agilitycm...PA_2013_CBA.pdf (378)

 

The interview period where guys can talk to other teams is the day after the draft until June 30th, but THIS YEAR, the interview dates are July 3rd and 4th. 

 

Edit never mind. Backstrom just signed for 3 and he's pending UFA on 7/5. Had other crap posted here but it was just my own confusion.

And just to take a shot at the Mets, because they're the Mets:

 

Even when the Flyers are done paying Bryz, the Mets will still be paying Bonilla.

It will be awesome if the Flyers take on another crazy contract in net.  Luongo?  Prohockeytalk had a good one, what if they offer sheet Bob? lol.
