Do these trades signal a huge offseason for the Flyers?

I think if you interpret his point a bit more charitably, it does make some sense. The Flyers
acquired players who were not impending UFAs, positioning themselves for a more constrained off-season approach. But they did not.
Exactly...rather then go out and get a couple guys who will make us carry a cap hit longer than this season and make us take on 2 more contracts then we needed all of that ends after this year.
So like I said, if we make a deep run with improved goaltending then great we have a shot at the cup. If not, we don't take on anymore contracts than we would've otherwise had to, and we don't take on anymore salary than we otherwise would've had to.
