If Mezsaros magically turned into Nabokov, I would be ok with it.

Otherwise, I am not.

I just don't understand why we can't have a goalie

We have around 4.15 mil left (not counting Boucher) to sign a goalie, Carcillo and Powe.

Id be fine with ditching Carcillo for a cheaper replacement to give us about 3.5 mil towards a goalie

We now have $22.492 million committed to 6 defensemen next year, and about $44 million overall committed for 2011-2012 to 6 forwards, 6 defensemen, and 1 goalie.

I was definitely hoping and expecting Coburn to be signed for less. I don't see why he should've been able to command this much. That said, I absolutely expect Coburn to play up to this contract. I really wanted to keep him as I expect him to be very good for us. Problem though, is that it's only 2 years. On a 2 year deal, he should've come cheaper. I expect Coburn will play himself into a raise 2 years from now. I would've liked more length on this deal for sure. 4-6 years would've been nicer.

I wouldn't think we have any room left to sign a goalie with these Coburn and Mez deals now in place....and that sucks big time.

I bit overpaid 3.2 for that type of season? Someone is getting traded during regular season.

Well, at least there is one hockey related thing I'm happy about today. I was bracing for an overpayment but this is pretty good. It would be nice if the deal was longer, but Coburn probably would not have wanted that, as he will want another shot at a raise sooner rather than later.

Confirmed. Braydon Coburn done in PHI. Two years, cap hit of $3.2M per year.


$0.20m more than I guessed. Awesome.
This is turning out to be a monster defence

That's my initial thought too. Okay Coburn, time to show you deserve that money pal.

Superstar defenses can do all possible to limit decent shots, but they can't stop them all... that's where a legit #1 goalie comes in and yet again, the Flyers front office screwed that up.

I'm surprised all the washed up journeyman goalies aren't lining up to make a deal with Homer. Anyone will look like a superstar goalie in front of this defense... until the off chance that defense fails (nobody is perfect) and that softie goes right past the glove/through the five hole, etc.

About what I expected.

Figured the Coburn camp was asking for 3.5, and the Flyers were probably looking around 3. I'm content with this.

Its an ok signing. Not spectacular, but also not horribly overpriced. I like it.

He's played nowhere near that level for the last 2 years.

If my calculations are correct, we got pretty much a full roster now provided Powe's and Carcillo's extensions go through. Both are UFAs that got Qualifying offers. We got 3.6 million to split between the two. The only thing I'm missing is some depth players. A depth defenseman perhaps and someone besides Cote to be 13th forward would be good.

Perfect deal on both sides for Coburn. He gets the low end of RFA window, which is good money. The two-year term doesn't bog down the Flyers, and on this defense, he's not going to become a $6M player in two years. So the next contract depends on where the team is financially.

Now, everyone can begin to say good-bye to Carle and Boucher, because there's got to be another trade out there.

I can tell you exactly what went down.

They negotiated. Coburn was probably asking for $4m, so Holmgren countered with $3m. The highest Holmgren would go was probably $3.2m, so he told Coburn yesterday, go ahead, look around, our offer will still be there.

Coburn looks around today, nobody ends up offering him over $2.5m, and so he comes back and takes the Flyers' offer of $3.2m.

Another overpayment. Shoulda let him walk as an RFA unless he was signed to some crappy compensation.

I doubt that Coburn would get any less than 3.2 million today if he was a UFA.

Contract amount seems about right. It's only $700K more than the Randy Jones cap hit from the signing two years ago.... and Coburn's a hell of a lot more valuable than Jones (and, yes, I know Jones was grossly overpaid; just putting the contract in perspective.)

He's not. So saying that is pointless.
