when you factor in that we were moving richie/carter I say ABSOLUTELY NOT.
could you imagine how bad we'd be w/ boucher and our current roster (probably minus jagr)
given this, (that we arent taking the risk, and are going after bryz) it isnt bad negotiating to officially declare you want bryz.
doing so definitely lowered his cap hit. It started a good relationship: he wanted to win, then (after snider stepped in) he wanted to win with us!
(so he shaved off about 500-750k)
Somehow I think the 9 years had more to do with him agreeing to a lower cap hit deal, than the Flyers front office declaring that he was their guy.
