Philly has no money to do that. Unless they're gonna pay him like $9 million, CBJ matches without thinking. And that's a moronic article. Sean Couturier or Brayden Schenn isn't getting  you Ryan Johansen. Every team likes him but they're not trading him for something like that. He says trade him or we'll sign him to a 6 yr $40 m offer sheet. Columbus says then lol ok and they'd match that in a millisecond. Randy Miller's a moron  

 

They can't even afford to offer sheet him.  They're already over the cap, and the summer cap is only $6.9M above the regular one.

I know I think I said that in the post before. Miller's just dumb as rocks on this. Plus if Philly did have the money, they'd be better off throwing it at Subban since they've been seen to greatly underrate his value before w/ the bridge deal

Depending on how true the rumors in this article are, it seems like the Flyers are even scumbags in the front office.  It's just some dude playing armchair GM, which we all have done before.  The thing that bothers me is the rumors like these

 

I don't think this is very common in the NHL.  For GMs to subtlety be like, "Watch your RFA, unless you'd rather make a deal."  It seems so scummy to me, but would not surprise me if Holmgren did this.  I do not see Lou operating in this way at all, let alone sign other teams players to offer sheets.

 

You'd have a better chance of seeing Lou rocking a skull and cross-bone earing, Diesel jeans, and a Ed Hardy t-shirt to the HOF induction ceremony this coming season than him making the threats that Holmgren allegedly made to Nashville RE: Shea Weber during his RFA year.

Radim Vrbata's camp doesn't wish to reveal which teams are in the running for the UFA wing out of respect for the process and those teams."

 

It's like Lou doing the comm' for Vrbata' agent...

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

That's bush league. I'm even happier Nashville matched and shoved it up their ass now. And if I were a GM and I got that call from a colleague, I'd tell him in no uncertain terms to fvck off.

i dont know much about cammalleri, havlat or vrbata.. but if "set" if the right word to use then that would feel a little exciting.. although people were saying the same thing last year when we picked up jagr, ryder and brunner and 2 of the 3 were no shows.

Well, the Islanders just got a whole lot better. Grabovski and Kulemin signed to 4-year deals.

Move Ryder

agreed i would rather see ryder moved then brunner and im sure atleast one of them is going to get moved out.. atleast when brunner gets hot he is hot for a few games it seemed like but both are just way too inconsistent in general.

More importantly, the Isles are past the cap floor now, so scratch them as a landing spot for Brunner or Ryder.

wtv what that sources is worth... 7,600 followers... lets just take this as a "what if" kind of thing for discussion.

 

Source confirms to me that #Habs are amongst finalists for Radim Vrbata. However, they do not have the highest bid. Decision tomorrow.

 

#Habs latest offer for Radim Vrbata appears to be a 4 year deal worth $4.125M per season. Initial Habs offer was 3 years.

 

UFA F Dany Heatley is willing to accept a 1 year deal worth around $2M with the right team. In talks with #Jets #Penguins #Devils

 

 

would be be okay with giving Vrbata lets say... 4 years 4.5m or something lets say we're really in for him?

 

=======

 

per Josh Rimer

 

Just spoke w/ Radim Vrbata, "Nothing is gonna happen today probably. My agent is still taking to teams so I will have better idea tommorow."
