None of the big guys are ever going to go unmatched. Think about it the best guys to leave are Niemi and Penner in this process. You could offer Petro the moon and St. Louis will just grit their teeth and match. It is bad business and all it does is open you up to more of the same.
Part of why I really wish someone will crack the Flyers and Holmgren across the knuckles for it.
Problem. If caught, tampering charges will be brought against the Wings.
I could easily see this back-firing.
FWIW -- I believe the Flyers are currently in negotiations on a new contract with Giroux.
