easy pass, think about it the flyers are trying to WIN THIS YEAR, what the hell do we want with a bunch of guys who are nowhere near their prime yet? mps is a helluva player but he is not ready to step in and replace a guy with 40-goal capability right away.

even beyond the age mismatch here, personnel wise it is awful. i do not like the way many flyers fan overstate our crowded center situation when three of our guys are very capable wingers. that is not a liability, that is an asset, it's called versatility and carter (along with giroux and briere) is a part of it. gagner and cogliano are not capable wingers or goal scorers. this would give us a REAL log jam at center and that is a best-case scenario because it would mean both guys played well enough to stick with a good NHL team (for a change).

i dont know where you read there was interest in bulin but there is none. anywhere. in the nhl. maybe not on earth. he has a terrible contract. he is old. he is coming off a month in jail. he is about as desirable in the hockey world as allen iverson in the basketball world right now.
