As for the Marty Turco internet reports, Holmgren said he had been contacted by Dallas GM Joe Nieuwendyk several times but told him the Flyers were happy with Ray Emery.
As CSNPhilly.com reported on Wednesday, the Flyers want to open talks on re-signing Emery in March after the NHL trade deadline.
“That [Turco deal] is not happening,” Holmgren said. “There is no chance of that happening. If we had interest in Marty Turco, we’d certainly look at him over the summer. We can’t take that cap hit [at that spot].”
Hope for another playoff collapse. He's going to be 34, and they have a few good goaltending prospects, as well as a few other players to re-sign.
The pieces could fall together
And yet, this is still all wishful thinking.
They've got a few good goalie prospects who probably won't even be ready until at least the end of next year. Nabokov's going to get a deal that's too long, a prospect will wait, and he'll eventually probably just retire a Shark.
Who are their other goalie prospects? I only know about Stalock. Oh. And Sateri too, I guess.
With all the fleecing going on any chance get the Panthers to give us Vokoun for nada or get this year's worst sophmore slump, Steve Mason, from Columbus for a Coburn like return. Heck its worth a shot
