Was it Carter who was banging Hartnell's wife or Richards? Who dun it this time?

 

I mean, almost certainly it was neither, but the rumor is that Carter was doing it.  Or Ted Nolan.

I was banging her.

 

Too bad Hartnell peaked. If we drafted Brendan Lemieux, a line with Lemieux, Matteau and Hartnell would be tops.

This reeks of a bigger move.


Philly has plans to go after Shea Weber according to a coworker of mine who's a big Flyers fan. That's why they jettisoned Hartnell.

And what exactly are they going to give up?  It's going to cost a ton to get Weber in addition to taking on that massive contract, so what, they could trade him in another 2 or 3 yrs from now?

By the way, Hartnell didn't ask for a trade, Hextall basically told him they wanted to move him and that was that.

Flyers: Weber :: Devils: Kovalchuk - both fanbases need to give up on that player ever being there.

David Poile has said that he's never trading Shea Weber, it would just be dumb to do so.

Seriously, although in the Flyers' case the organization's probably that obsessed with Weber too.

One of the only D-men in the league currently you could build a team around. Flyers thought they had him by playing the money game, and they failed. Gotta give up on that. I feel like they'll overpay a free agent or two now.

One of the only?  There's plenty of defenseman out there that could be focal building points

Needless to say, flyers boards lighting up and pretty pissed.  Not so much that Hartnell's gone, but getting Umberger and not taking back $$$. Almost identical contracts. I love it.

Flyers ditch two years of Hartnell's contract though. Saves them some money and cap space in the future.

Hextall is asserting that he's the GM. This is a king of the jungle type move to send a message to the locker room and put others on notice aside from just the financials in the long term. Short term I don't think this makes the Flyers better, just different as Paul Holmgren used to say after making his annual shakeup trades.

I mean sure, but in the meantime Umberger is a much worse player.  Yeah, the Flyers would probably have to buy out Hartnell eventually, but they have to buy out Umberger probably too.  It seems like a baby and bathwater type maneuver.

Stupid.... Not you, but Hextall. Getting rid of Richards/Carter was a king of the jungle move and look how that panned out. Now they get rid of arguably their #2 leader... again...

 

My money's on Columbus making a nice playoff run next year.
