My problem is that from a cap management perspective the Flyers should have gotten a better deal at this point in time -- you know, NOT market value for "proven" UFA scorers.
It's just part of the continuous drip of cap space... which may be a very real issue in the short term if Voracek has a break out year.
What about in 3 or 4 years when Couturier and Schenn have their ELCs expire? Will JVR's contract still be viewed as a "drip in our cap"? Or will you be singing a different tune when we have enough cap room to retain all our young players?
Is it so hard to believe that Holmgren made a contract that was constructed with the long term future in mind?
