Shelley must hold some 'interesting' photos of Holmgren and/or Lavi. There's absolutely no justification for his continued existence with the Flyers. I defend Holmgren a lot and whilst this is a small matter really, it's all a bit confusing. He offers the team absolutely nothing.
Let's face it, his best contribution all season was dragging Chara down to his level.
You have thirty days on the active roster or ten games before a player has to clear waivers again before reassigning him to the minors. They give themselves a little more playing room later in the season.
Damn, wish he stayed. Can't complain about having a surplus of forwards though, with Schenn/Couturier coming back soon. I love his nastiness. Threw some big hits and whacked away in front of the rangers net a couple times, before fighting Boyle.
My money is that he is gone once his contract is over. I do really like the future of this team though. The organization has really done wonders with all the young kids we have now. When was the last time we had seven rookies in a line up? Plus with these next two drafts coming up there is a buzz again about this team. Just think where we were a day before the draft and where we are now. I know I am excited!!
