Paul Holmgren has added $8.3M to our cap for next season in the persons of Shelley, Meszaros, Walker, and Leighton. So those run right into the summer of re-signing Carter and Giroux (without getting the goalie that we really need -- still). Only Leighton will expire heading into JVR's next contract.
It would be one thing if he was addressing real needs in adding cap space (if he got us a real no. 1 goalie, I'd be fine with adding some cap going forward...), but he's added unnecessary expense to our D and pushed a developing guy (Bartulis) off the back of the roster -- ever wonder why we struggle to develop D men? And stood pat in goal, where we really needed improvement.
We're in WIN NOW mode I guess. As in: THIS YEAR. lmao.
If Flyers don't win the Cup this year, boy oh boy....
