But I would like to see this 3 signed for cheap. I believe we can do it. But I'd love to hear your guys feedback. I like to refer to those guys as our workhorses. They're all good at what they do.
As for Coburn/Parent I have no idea. Parent is hurt, but young. Coburn I'm 50 - 50 on.
Tollefsen, sorry no thanks. Guy is always hurt. Sorry Wolfy...If you're still around here.
Syvret I'd love to have back.
Emery - I'm going to wait till after the playoffs to think about him.
Carcillo is a RFA so he will get a 10% raise on his current contract of .81667M/year and I doubt he will get an offer sheet thrown his way from another team.
Betts is a career 4th liner, he almost didn't get a job this year, so I think if we offer him .8-1M/year for 2-3 years he will love the contract stability and take it in a heartbeat.
Asham we could bring back, but, imo, we will more than likely replace him with some Phantoms next year (Kalinski being my personal choice, but a rebounded Maroon or a Laliberte could also be a possibility - maybe even Legein if he is still playing hockey?
). This is mainly because we have a ton of bottom six AHL players that need to crack this lineup eventually, not because Asham would cost considerably more than these guys or be a downgrade.
Tollefson will not be back, our defense, with the emergence of Bartulis and, imo anyway, Syvret, not to mention Marshall and Bourdon sitting in the wings waiting I just don't see a spot for him.
Parent is a RFA, again, a 10 percent raise on .855 is very nice for a young shut down defenseman, he will be back.
Coburn is a RFA as well; however, teams will probably be dumb enough to sign him to an offer sheet. In fact, he will most likely warrant 2M+ in an offer sheet, which will land the Flyers a 1st and 3rd round pick from the other team.... SIGN ME UP FOR THAT!!!
Syvret is a RFA, 10 percent raise on .575, noone will offer sheet him. He makes a great 7th dman as he has graduated from the AHL game, but is not neccessarily a NHL caliber player. Although, I must say, under Lavi he has looked very good and I could see him and Parent/Bartulis growing together in the future.
Emery is the big question mark, I think that there will be goalies out there that we can grab (like Nabokov) that would greatly improve our team if we are looking to drop big money; however, if Emery will take 3M/year for a few years I would be all over it.
