Hey Mr. Blues fan. You want to know the difference between the Philadelphia Flyers and your St. Louis Blues?

Look at Claude Giroux... Mike Richards...Jeff Carter...JVR

You know what they have in common? They never got to the point where they became RFA'S. The Flyers *LOCK UP* their young top talent and don't let them to get to the RFA market. If the Flyers had a defenseman like Shea Weber or Pietrangenlo they never would have gotten to the point where another team could RFA them because they'd have locked them up long-term.

So hey if you want to give someone like Matt Read a big time contract just to spite the Flyers if they offer-sheeted Pietrangenlo you're more than welcome to do that. The Flyers will enjoy your compensatory picks.

Matt Read is set to be an unrestricted free agent. No picks. Just a massive cap hit for St Louis while we pay nothing. Read was a bad example. Couts and Schenn yeah. I see Philly locking them up early anyway.




Also, I've seen more peace in the Middle East, I love those who come in peace.
