I swear, if we stand pat with no STARTING goalie and do not trade current players for draft picks, I am going to ****ing SNAP.
This will be the LOWEST point for Flyers starting goalies in history. Sure Leighton looks good, the team is ****ing playing better. The guy was barely an AHL starter until we needed anyone for cheap.

If we don't make a move...I'll be fine with it (I understand the constraints). If we give up anything of future value for a depth forward or defenseman when we have Leighton as our starting goalie, I'll be furious.

Because it wouldn't be trade deadline day without the Kaberle and goalie rumors. That's just the way it is every year.

Supposedly, Kaberle said today he'd be willing to a deal. That opened up the discussion. Flyers are probably one of a few teams. Devils mentioned, too.

It's a tough market for goalies. Why go get a goalie who is no better than Leighton? It looks like all the teams with goalies better than Leighton are asking too much.

Torres for Paetsch + 2nd. Even if it's a fair deal, the Flyers couldn't match that

That, and the fact that the best goalie in the world can't save a team with crappy defense. If the defense is good enough to support Leighton, the team will win regardless.

So if we now trade stud young players to get a D man all the while Leighton is our starter, I will be making my first ****ing trip to Philly to punch Holmer in his stupid mother ****ing face. I am one of the biggest , blindest Flyer homers around, but us continuing on with Leighton as our starter will be one of the stupidest decison's in the teams history.

he will make a move just for the sake of making one.
We arent getting Vokoun, Halak, Price ect.
So i would be prepared like the rest of us to be ticked off when Holmgren trades a 3rd round pick for a 7th defenseman or a extra forward.

Wonder why the market is so expensive this year, it's like you need a 2nd rounder just to get into the discussion for anyone.

Everyone is in the hunt this year. Only like 5-6 teams are admittedly out of contention.

I mentioned some players I'd like, but this is more true than any of those

Belanger got a 2nd rd pick, you would not want to move Asham, Parent, Powe for draft picks if we stand pat with our goalies.

Sabres trade Clarke MacArthur to Thrashers for draft picks.

DarrenDreger

Leafs aren"t done. stay turned


Heard a possible offer from St. Louis for Hamhuis: Brad Boyes and Carlo Colaiacovo. Flyers can't touch that.

I wouldn't be surprised if Exelby was discussed in the last day or two or three...
