For late arrivals looking for a review, Sam @ the Inq. has an article posted:

Here are some of them:

** Jaromir Jagr was given several chances to say he wanted to return to the Flyers. He did not bite. It appears he will test the FA market.

** GM Paul Holmgren expects to re-sign defenseman Matt Carle, a potential free agent, at a below-market price.

** Ilya Bryzgalov, with a year of playing in Philly behind him, will be a much better goalie next season, Holmgren said. In a good-natured tone, Holmgren said Bryzgalov’s duties weren’t performing for “Comedy Central” but stopping the puck.

** Holmgren said Chris Pronger is "the same," meaning he still has concussion symptoms. The GM added he was a "glass half-full" guy and still believed Pronger would play next season. Out of respect to Pronger, he will not even think about naming a new captain (Claude Giroux appears to be the leading candidate) at this point.

** Holmgren said he would have injury updates later tonight. Speculation is that Kimmo Timonen, Nick Grossmann and JVR will need surgery.

** By the GM's estimate, the cap will rise from $64.3 million to around $69 million.
