In what way are the Flyers and specifically Homer "the most savvy and cutting edge of all the teams, with respect to finding loop holes and pushing the rules"?
1. Pretty much caused the lockout with the Weber deal (bonus-loaded)
2. Pronger's contract paved the way for the hossa/kovalchuk deals (front-loaded)
3. Carter/Richards deals also added to the contract length rules.

I'm surprised you didn't bring up upshall, bc that's the biggest cap blunder we've seen. And that was Giroux's fault more than homer..
