We cannot do this because we have had Rathje, Hatcher, Primeau,Lapperiere and now Pronger on LTIR which forbids us from adding porated contracts.
Seriously, with a bit more cap room, the flyers could have been looking at significant improvements on the team before heading into the play-offs. Instead we always got stuck with cheap half season rentals, many of which failed on the team.
The only significant peices I can remember that made a solid contribution in the play-offs for us were Vinnie Prospal and Grossman.
2nd for Kubina may be one of the worst trades Homer has ever made. I really can't think of a more useless way to throw away a 2nd round pick. Had he thrown that at minny earlier(and added a phantom or two) and tried to grab Zidlicky, our luck may of changed this year even. Kubina was a useless over the hill plug who couldn't even beat out lilja. He was brought in to help the D and really he made it even worse.
