Simon Gagne rumors (update: signed with Los Angeles)
 
MOD EDIT

Update regarding Brad Richards:

http://www.nytimes.com/2011/07/03/sp...gewanted=print

Quote:

On Saturday, Richards announced his decision: to sign with the Rangers for nine years and $58.5 million. The deal reunites Richards with John Tortorella, his coach in Tampa Bay when the Lightning won the Stanley Cup in 2004 and gives the Rangers the elite centerman they have long sought to set up their top sniper, Marian Gaborik.

Richards, 31, chose New York over the Kings, who made an offer believed to be slightly higher than the Rangers. The Toronto Maple Leafs, the Calgary Flames (who reportedly offered $65 million for nine years) and the Philadelphia Flyers were also among the “three or four” teams whose offers Richards slept on overnight. Tampa Bay and the Buffalo Sabres withdrew from the bidding Friday night.

Ehhh, I'd rather not.

Beef Invictus 07-01-2011 03:56 PM

No we aren't. That's flat out wrong. It just isn't possible. I refuse to believe it, and I'm sticking to my guns.

flountown 07-01-2011 03:57 PM

My head hurts...

Wayne Train 07-01-2011 03:57 PM

There is absolutely no way that is possible...at all.

Dude... have you seen what Homer has dont with this team? It isnt even the Flyers anymore.... I would not be surprised at all ;)

Flyerfan808 07-01-2011 03:58 PM

If by big pitch, they mean trying to convince him to play here for 2M for one season.

OriginJM 07-01-2011 03:59 PM

ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE

2011-2012 Philadelphia Flyers

jr13 07-01-2011 03:59 PM

well....
 
capgeek:
The #Flyers can still have up to about $8m in cap space if they put Laperriere on LTI and leave Schenn off their opening-day roster.

would that be enough?

4thline4life 07-01-2011 03:59 PM

i don't want it to be true but we could sign him according to cap geek.

Noooooooo

WeekendAtBernies 07-01-2011 03:59 PM

The terms are:

#1: He agrees to wear the number 18.
#2: He agrees to be the team captain.

That's about all I got... I just need to make sure I can still put this Richards jersey to good use... :handclap:

It's very possible

Hmmmm

WTF ?

#NHL news. Don't take your eyes off #Flyers for 1 second. Word is they made a solid pitch to Brad Richards that may make them frontrunners.

GKJ 07-01-2011 04:02 PM

I love July


Richards is still a PPG player. If we get him, we vault right back to the top as far as Cup Contenders.

WeekendAtBernies 07-01-2011 04:02 PM

Hypothetically, let's say our "big pitch" drives the price on Richards up.

And hypothetically, let's say he signs w/ Tampa.

Then, hypothetically, Stamkos would be available via a sign and trade... right? Maybe for about $8 Million per year?!?

Trade them Couturier and 2 firsts?

Make it happen Homer?

Beef Invictus 07-01-2011 04:02 PM

So we might troll the living **** out of Pitt AND NYR in one day? That would be truly historic.

Yoshimitsu 07-01-2011 04:03 PM

Holmgren is absolutely insane. Insane.
