Sorry for the sideways images. I rotated them before uploading to imgur but it doesn't seem to want to work.





I hope he doesn't mean at the deadline, we will pay out the penis if we try that; instead of just one step back over the summer, we'll end up taking several.

Anyone feel like a move for a defensive winger could be in the works? Sit one of Sestito or Rinaldo, move Max to the 4th and have a good defensive winger on the 3rd?

would love to see a defender brought in, but the options don't seem enticing

4 goals were scored today with guys standing in front of the net, untouched. I want a big body or two, who will keep the space around the net clear. Gill and Grossman preferrably. Weber, Gleason, and/or Beauchimin would be nice, but probably too expensive.

Gleason was extended a few weeks ago. No dice. I also don't see Beauch moving.

beauchimin extended not to long ago as well... andy sutton wouldn't be a bad acquisition, big body and has a mean streak (suspended a few times this season)

I have to ask, what kind of mobility does Grossman have?

Haha I know, I'm not one of them. If the price is right for either then yes.



Cory Sarich?

We will want Suter/Weber, we will end up with Gill.

shane o'brien? the avs don't seem to be going anywhere fast, maybe they'd be willing to part with a defender

I know, that's why I threw them in the expensive section. Sorry I didn't clarify.

I'd still rather not give up a big piece to the roster/future (Schenn, JvR, etc) but SOMETHING has to change...

He sucks, doesn't always have his head in the game. Having a good year, but I wouldn't bite. Gill is much more responsible and more of a shutdown guy.

What do you think it would take to get Matt Greene from LAK?

What do you think it would take to get Scott Hannan from the Flames?

Deadline cap room according to capgeek: $4,445,934 (I am not sure if this number makes the assumption that Pronger will remain on LTIR through the deadline).

More cap space can also be made by bumping players off the roster if their spot is taken by a newly acquired player.

Assets:
Flyers 1st round pick 2012, Flyers 1st round pick 2013
Kings 2nd round pick 2012, Flyers 2nd round pick 2013, Panthers 2nd round pick 2012 OR 2013
Sharks 3rd round pick 2012, Flyers 3rd round pick 2013, Wild 3rd round pick 2013
Flyers 4th round pick 2012, Flyers 4th round pick 2013


???
Matt Carle ($3,437,500 cap hit -- expiring, UFA)
Marc-Andre Bourdon ($875,000 -- expiring, RFA)
Erik Gustafsson ($900,000 -- ELC through 2012-2013)


Possible targets:
Lubomir Visnovsky ($5,600,000 -- through 2012-2013, $3,000,000 salary next season)
Marek Zidlicky ($4,000,000 -- through 2012-2013)
Toni Lydman ($3,000,000 -- through 2012-2013)
Bryan Allen ($2,900,000 -- expiring, UFA)
Hal Gill ($2,250,000 -- expiring, UFA)
Nicklas Grossman ($1,625,000 -- expiring, UFA)
Scott Hannan ($1,000,000 -- expiring, UFA)

All UFA dmen:
