I just think it's funny that they're so bad defensively and in net, that they were our slumpbuster.   I always knew we were scoring against the Flyers last season.

Someone brought up a good point. Can't a GM with the right need just offer-sheet the sh!t out of this team for the right key players and there's pretty much nothing they can do about it?....


I think not just because you can't make an offer sheet with what you don't have. So if you don't have a first round pick in the next two or three years (whatever it is) you can't make the $7 million AAV offer sheet. If one team made multiple offer sheets there won't be enough picks to make good on the compensation.

Good point, offer sheets are confusing to me, thanks for explaining. But in reality, a team that wants a Giroux, Schenn, or Couturier pretty badly can nab them next June, and I can't see the Flyers being in too much better a position to be able to stop it from happening. Essentially, they have very little flexibility moving forward, even if they shed some space. They still need a goalie, and that's for THIS year.

The cap is expected to jump quite a bit once it's re-linked.   Also, you have to remember that the expiring contracts go off.   They *should* be able to keep their top players, it's at the sacrifice of retaining or getting depth.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun:
Aside from Montreal, other teams with interest in Briere include I believe Nashville, NYI and NJ, among others

 

I don't think I'd want Briere unless he just gets dressed for the playoffs.

I think Alan Walsh said they're projecting it to be at $80 million 3 years from this offseason.  So a growth of about $5.5 million an offseason, probably pretty reasonable, considering this pause.

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'd take that with several grains of salt - of course Walsh has an interest in promulgating the notion that the cap will explode.  I do think it will go up significantly, but I'd be pretty shocked if it were $80M in 2016-17.

I mean its just a game after all and were all humans. Plus they are in our division, lets stop the hate and all that sh!t and lets help each others instead...

Schenn + couturier for hedberg + volchenkov. Do it.

I feel the start of a long friendship between the clubs after that.

How about we trade our offense for theirs and make them watch the end result of that.

Pascal Dupuis will remain a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

 

Dupuis, who could have become an unrestricted free agent Friday, signed a four-year contract worth $15 million on Tuesday night to remain with the Penguins.

LW: Definitely keen on Clowe, Stalberg, and could easily see MacArthur, Penner, Raymond fitting in.

 

RW: Horton yes, Ryder yes... and to a lesser extent, LaRose yes.

 

C: Weiss yes.  Ribiero (would love but prob too expensive). 

 

RFA: absolutely yes to Stewart, Wheeler, Hodgson, Burmistrov

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.
