Yeah, our off-season just keeps getting better and better, doesn't it? At least this is the first bad news that isn't Homer's fault.

Our PK looks to be drastically worse at the start of next season. Betts is out for over a month, Powe isn't re-signed, and Gagne is gone. That's a lot of PK power going bye-bye.

powe could center that line or pssibly give jon kalinski the chance to make the team. im actually really interested to see what kalinski can do at the nhl level. he has all the tools and i liked what ive seen in callups. i think he could integrate seemlessly and come november there may be some debate about sending him back to adirondack

Richards, Carter, Giroux, Lappy (no Betts, Powe, Gagne...) not great. Good thing we have 8 D, we can just dress them all and have 2 units of 4 d-men!

I'd never heard of him but someone posted a montage youtube video of him today somewhere on the boards he looked terrible.

a brad jones mention, i have seen it all. I remember Al Morganti creaming hsi pants abotu Jones, oh he is so fast. Powe is a dime a dozen if there ever was one. Trad ehis ass for 6th rd pick and move on. You cna invite some vet to camp on a mke do contract for league min. Powe at anything more than 700k is wasted $

Oh God...I remember him. I also remember the late Willie Huber who we had for a short period of time...we needed a point shot. Another one dimensional player I recall was Corey Foster. Everybody talked about his shot like Brad Jones' speed.

Good thing we have so many defensemen as we can now dress 7 and double shift Carter to give Shelley his 4 minutes.

Willie huber played wella ctaully. The thing i always remember about him was when they used to have the waiver drfat in September, he was always left unprotected even many years after he left the NHL. Gave me laugh every year. I miss that drfat.

Huber was a pretty good player..one of the first true big men. It's just that the Flyers got him at the end of his career which hasn't changed too much. He was pretty much done when the Flyers got him. I remember when the Flyers got Nick Fotiu.....and Al Secord! I'm surprised the Flyers never picked up Ron Duguay !

2Secord wasnt that bad when he was here. Played ok. guys who were not here long at all that played well and no idea(cant remember) why they were dealt are Ives Racine and Brian Benning.

^ Huber and Crossman both held out in what was Holmgren's first camp as head coach, in 1988. Huber threatened to go to Europe after the Flyers offered him less money that he made the prior season. He never played in the NHL again.

Crossman, who had a problem with both Keenan and Clarke because of comments they made at the end of the 1987-88 season about his commitment, was dealt for Jay Wells.

Wells was a true "warrior." I enjoyed his time in Philly. An old throwback in the Marsh mold. Guy was tough.

Crossman wasn't missed as much as McCrimmon who went on to be a the beast for Calgary and then Detroit. That was Clarke not wanting to pay the guy which was a bad mistake. I think Howe eventually joined McCrimmon in Detroit did he not... around 92? Howe was one of my favorites..the back problems just did him in eventually.

Marsh was the better Flyers' player by comparison than Wells. Marsh was solid in the two Cup appearances, too, very underrated performance (especially against the Islanders in 1985 PO series), but Wells was a warrior as you said and of course Marsh played on the better teams.

The comment about Duguay: There was a rumor the Flyers and Detroit were to swing a deal prior to a game but the Wings wanted Sinisalo and the Flyers nixed it. Duguay scored twice that night -- pretty sure the game ended in a tie.

Benning was a decent player when he was here but after the Flyers traded him to Edmonton he became the odd man out for the Oilers and complained about lacked of PT there. Benning criticized the Oilers, too, at one point. I think they either released him or he was a free agent but either way Clarke ended up signing him with the Panthers.

When the Flyers made the trade, they needed a little offense and Beranek provided that -- short term -- but they also got Greg Hawgood, who, IIRC, played under Hitchcock (asst. coach at the time) in the Jrs and Hitchcock saw him as a powerplay specialist who could help the team.

Racine: Nothing really stands out as I don't remember too much other than I'm pretty sure he was the first player dealt after Clarke returned as GM. Clarke wanted to bolster the blueline and got Kevin Haller in return. Racine bounced around once he left the Flyers.

Clarke's biggest mistake was not signing McCrimmon and letting feelings from prior years cloud his judgment. He admitted as much later. The two had a history.

McCrimmon and Howe did team in Detroit for a season, yes.

Betts Transcript from TimP.

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Tim-P...script/2/29458

Quote:
Blair Betts had his chronic, dislocated right shoulder repaired again recetnly - third or 4th time by my count.

He is a transcript of an interview, courtesy of the Flyers:

Q: What have you been doing over the summer?

BB: “For the most part I have been coming to the Skate Zone and rehabbing my shoulder, continue to work out and get stronger in that area. I flew to Maui (Hawaii) for a few days to watch my older brother (Dan) get married and this past weekend I took my wife and two daughters down to the shore to celebrate my oldest daughter’s 3rd birthday.”



Q: Speaking of your shoulder how is that going?

BB: “We are a month into the rehab from the date of the surgery and the shoulder is feeling great. I think we might be ahead of schedule. The time line the doctor gave me was about four months from the day I had the surgery. If that is the case then I should be ready for the start of the regular season. Like I said, I think we are a little bit ahead of schedule.”



Q: Will you be ready by training camp?

BB: “I’m not sure if I will actually be ready to compete in training camp. That’s kind of up in the air right now. I will see the doctor again in about two weeks. I should be cleared to skate. But handling and shooting the puck is kind of up in the air. There obviously won’t be any physical contact or anything like that. Like I said, I should be ready to play at the beginning of the regular season. But as far as training camp, I’m not sure yet.”



Q: What do you think about the team’s recent off-season acquisitions?

BB: “I think Paul (Holmgren) has done a great job. We brought in several great defensemen. Paul has brought in a lot of size and experience in these players. Unfortunately a couple days ago we traded Simon Gagne to Tampa Bay in exchange for another big defenseman (Matt Walker), but that is part of the business. You hate to see a guy like Simon go. He’s been a great player for the organization for a long time. Obviously, he was a great player for us last year and we hope he does well in Tampa.”
