Or, also plausable, Scott wants to leave the Devils but keep his house and his kids in the same school. However, he doesn't want to go to a team that sucks so the Rangers and Isles are out. That leaves the Flyers.

If we lose Niedermayer, Stevens and Rafi Lou has his work cut out for him.

Matvichuk-Martin
Hale-White
Brown-Albelein????

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


Which Scott are you referring to? If it's Niedermayer, after these signings (if they are as reported), the Flyers can't afford him. It didn't seem like they thought they could afford him to begin with. If it's Stevens, well, that would bite big time, wouldn't it. Also interesting to see how Flyer fans would react to having the man they claim to hate play on their team.

Sorry, it was Niedermayer. I was commenting on his Agent saying he was disappointed the Flyers didn't call. I think Stevens will either play with us or retire.

The flyers made sense to Neids b/c he could maybe stay in Jersey and get more money from the Phailures instead of Lou.

I just don't understand Clarke at times. Therian has to be an insurance signing and Rahje is very good signing. Hatcher is weird as others have stated. They have a lot of talented youth trying to make the lineup.

This is a crossroads for Lou right now. The flyers have loaded up. Will he try to match it with the limited funds or stay the course as he always has. The new CBA helped Clarke by letting wipe away the sins of the past (Amonte and Leclair) without penalty to free up huge amounts of cap space. Plus he got his Brodeur rule in. My expectations for this season are dwindling.

I guess I am resembling chicken little on the first day and a half of free agency (which is unfair to Lou) but sometimes unavoidable as a passionate fan.

It is hard to imagine that we would start the season with the defense we have:

Matvichuk-Martin
Hale-White
Brown-Albelein

It looks mediocre to me, IMO Lou will have to acquire another prime defensemen if we cant get Nieds, Raffi, or Stevens.

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.

Makes sense now, thanks. People talked a little about the commute in another thread. He'd definitely need to get a condo down there. Upper Montclair to Voorhees in South Jersey for morning practice when they aren't on the road is a hike even if you have a driver. It's probably a 2-hr drive at the time of the morning he'd have to go. Then he'd have to stay down there all day on game days, no point in going home for the game-day nap just to turn around and come back. But unless he moved the family, he'd barely see them. So I don't see the point for family reasons.

Anyone have any information on Lindros?

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

He spent all of last year working attending the University of Toronto, working toward a degree in Economics. Yes, he became an actual adult and planned for the future. Every rumor I've heard says he lands in Toronto for a minimum contract, but we'll see. I don't think he plays much longer and TO's situation looks bad. I wonder, if he's going to take the minimum, if he doesn't do it on a team he thinks can win soon and try to go for a Cup.

Thanks Sue. I'm probably the only one but with Lindros having matured over the last few years and going cheap I'd like to see the Devils make a run at him.

OK, now this doesn't make sense, he signs 3 guys with less mobility and trades one who has GOT it??? In THIS NHL???

Unless he signed Rafalski instead of one of the other guys... :noclue:

Yea, I'm not sure either. Curious moves if they did in fact sign Hatcher, Rathje, and Therien.

Sportsnet reports that the Flyers signed Jon Sim as well:

The Flyers website says there is a press conference at 1:00 PM today.
