yeah, OK.....after Lavy's finesse skaters just weren't cutting it in the playoffs where did Ol' Lavy turn ?? ....to Carcillo and Rinaldo .....little late for that don't you think ??
WHEN did Lavy play Carcillo during the season ?????????????????????
Our Captain is right here.....what *** style are the Flyers playing ?
I was thinking more along the lines of Nodl/Shelley-Konopka-Betts, and you do know that Konopka had a faceoff % for the season of 57%?
yeah I do. I know what he brings. It never is going to happen because Holmgren has already has Rinaldo penciled in on the 4th line in place of Carcillo. IMO
Honestly I would consiter Konopka if we didnt have Shelley and Rinaldo stayed in the AHL

Carcillo will and should be gone and be replaced by Rinaldo, unless Danny takes a hefty pay-cut.
I wouldn't mind it too much if he returned with a salary cut for next year. I'm not that fond of him, but there are worse 4th line players out there.
The same kind of goes for a guy like Nödl as well. I don't mind him being resigned, but he should be on a close to league minimum contract really.
If they both signed a 700k contract like Betts has I'd be ok with that... If they want much more than that they can be replaced, either by some UFA's or perhpas within the organization.
Cheap UFA's that might be of interest to me could be Boyd Gordon (solid faceoff guy who is good on the pk, kind of Jim Dowdish as a player, he's been injured a bit too often so far in his career perhaps however) and Cody McCormick who was pretty good for Buffalo I thought. He's a hardnosed guy who has turned his career around after a year down in the AHL. McCormick on a line with Lappy in Colorado a few years ago and I believe he picked up on a thing or two from him. Both Gordon and McCormick should come in around the 700k salary I think, perhaps even cheaper.
Carcillo gets bashed way too much in my opinion. He's a quality fourth liner, but he just happens to be a bit overpaid. I wouldn't mind him back at a pay cut, but otherwise I'd let him walk and replace him with someone that can bring more to the table, a la Konopka.
