The major thing here is that Homer is exploring every option. He wants to make sure he can first gauge the interest of every serviceable-and-better netminder has in joining the team at any sort of discount. if they are, they will counter offer and get something done. if they are not, they were going to test the market anyway. it comes down to interest on the part of the player in the flyers at this stage. if nothing gets done, then it comes to to leaguewide interest in the player after july 1. the guy or couple of guys that take longest to get signed will be the guys willing to settle in that range. either way the flyers do not exactly of their pick of the lot but both ways they have a chance to sign someone capable and excited to be with the team.

that sounds as good or better to me than giving up an asset in order to dump a salary (meaning you get negative value for what is probably a decent player like Briere or Hartnell or Carle) and then overpaying for a guy with at least a couple of peers on the market in a league where not THAT many teams are hard up for a starter.

Very much so. Given the number of options out there and the few teams who need them, I'd consider it an abysmal failure on Holmgren's part if we came away from this paying more than $3.5M to any goalie. I'm not spending extra money just to keep a marginally above average guy away from another team.

The Stars have zero chance of competing any time soon. Of course they don't want him.

just some info.

Reports hit the Internet early yesterday saying Turco texted the crew at NHL Live, the NHL's midday show on XM Radio, to tell them he had rejected an offer from the Flyers for $2 million.

Multiple league sources told the Daily News yesterday the Flyers never made an offer to Turco.

The Flyers official stance on everything is that they never do anything unless the contract is signed.

Holmgren does seem to enjoy his shadow work.

I can not believe that. There is no way Truco would even think twice if he was offered 2M. Thats like an insult.
