No interest, then. Especially since I'm pretty sure we'd need to trade for his rights

I would take him if we can get his rights cheap and if he would lower his asking price...........

We still just don't have the cap space, that's the main issue.

But whats the point?

i'd rather use the money thats freeing up to keep guys like voracek/JvR and pursue UFAs (which are gonna be amazing this offseason)

haha, that's a foreign concept to Philly fans.

Player: I'd like a 5 year term

Homer: 10 it is!

We've only got 1.5 mil to work with including Lappy on LTIR. We'd need to move a pretty good player to make it work.

If he wants a big pay day, we can't afford him.

I think it would be great. We'd be one of the most hated teams in the league.

We could solidify that if we got Avery and Cooke

I doubt his asking price gets any lower than it does with the reigning Cup champs

That may be too much for me to handle, I would probably stop watching the Flyers if we're paying Matt Cooke...

God I hate that guy, but would love to have him in orange. He's such a PITA and pops in goals too? Would be a great addition.

Edit for clarity: I'm talking about Marchand, not Cooke. Cooke can **** himself.

Avery is hated for good reason, but at least he's funny

He does his job better than anyone in the league, brings skill, occasionally fights his own fights, and doesn't intentionally injure opposing players. I'd take Avery 10 times out of 10 over Cooke.

Yeah, I'm sure Chia would have traded up Marchand for Versteeg. I'd like some of whatever it is your smoking. Maybe we can also get Datsyuk for Carle, another fair deal.

Like Kadri, who will cost you the moon +.

It's endlessly amusing to see Toronto fans try and convince us that their players are the best on earth, while they spend all their time trying to exchange them for other players.

I feel for them. They care oh so much, and want their team to succeed so badly.
