I really don't see the Flyers making significant waves in the UFA market this offesason. At least I hope not. Horton is a fine player, but I'm not sure he makes much sense for us at the cost it will take to get him--which I'm guessing will be closer to $6 million than $5. I don't see the team letting Bryzgalov go this offseason--maybe in June 2014, but not this year--so Emery isn't likely. (If we do buy out Bryzgalov, I'm nearly certain that Briere is back.)

For better or worse, I think 75 percent of our line-up is already set:

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
_____-Schenn-Simmonds
_____-Couturier-Read
Talbot-_____-Rinaldo
Rosehill

Timonen-Schenn
Coburn-_____
Grossmann-Meszaros
Gervais

Bryzgalov / Mason
Laughton will fill at least one of the forward spots--either on the 3rd line or at 4C. Between existing guys (Gagne, Hall), prospect options (McGinn, etc.), and, potentially, our 1st round selection, I think it is likely that the forward slots are filled internally.

I could see us going after a PMD, but I also think that Gustafsson deserves a shot.
