I am told the Carle debate is very split - a lot of fans really like him and want to keep him and a lot realllllly dislike him. I don't think I've ever spoken to any that like him so I am curious to get a feel for who hopes he stays and who hopes he goes.
This is a guideline to create polls:

I'll be so happy to see Jagr out of here. As far as Carle goes, there was an article about Suter in one of the papers and he said he's looking for a place where he can end his career and that he is married with one kid and they may have more. So basically, he's looking for $$$$ and term and a NMC. Also, they mentioned that the defensemen FA crop isn't deep with only Suter, Wideman and Carle as the top group. So let's see what Carle has to say because if he is looking for $$$ and term, he isn't going to get it here and for less than market value.

Love the comment about walking away when Bryz starts rambling although I'm not sure he should be saying things like that to the media. Would he like it if someone on the team or in management said something like that about him?

There is always change. Even in the cup years. But no way he does what he did last year. No one saw those moves. I think tinker is the correct word of the day.

Good to hear there is also some more confirmed info of the cap going to 69M, which should help us grab one or two very important pieces.

But overall, a good presser. Hopefully the surgeries don't keep them out for 6 months.

I see it this way too. My only real fear is paying Carle at a competitive rate. If he goes somewhere else for top dollar, or returns here for a bargain deal, I'm fine with that either way.

I think Jagr would like to come back, he just didn't want to say anything because of retirement, not FA.

Difference between Leino's and Carle's situation is that Leino hadn't earned anything before, he was on his first NHL deal worth $800k, Carle has already made $14MM, he doesn't have to go for the money. He may still wants the best possible paycheck.

He's in the driver's seat, though, because there aren't many defencemen available. You have Lidstrom going year to year, Pronger pretty much done, Kimmo may play or may not and suddely there's interest. This is his time to get the big contract as a 27 year old.

The other thing with attracting free agents who want to win, are they going to look at Bryz's unmovable 8 more years contract and say they don't think they can do it? We don't know what they're saying privately but of course they are going to say all the right things. Who knows if he feels this way.

as a Jagr fanboi, i want him to stay in Flyers..
as flyer fan i m not sure.. i would like to hear what happend in playoffs, why he looked slower than before in this season?, why he looked so much better just month or two ago?
at the moment it seems he is broken, Jagr always wanted represent Czech, now he said he wouldn't be any help.. says it all i think

also i can not believe he doesn't want resign flyers after all he said?

I bet Jagr sees all these young guys stepping up and probably realizes he won't have a prominent role next year... leading him to look at other options where can can step into a big role again (like he did with the Flyers this year).

Giroux should not be captain of this team. Guess they didnt learn their lesson by giving another young star the "C" so early. Give it to Timo, he deserves it.

If he's signing for $5M that better be us. I'm thinking he'll get more than Wisniewski got last year.


If I'm reading it though, sounds like they're closer than we either think or want to think. Holmgren already said that his demands are reasonable. If they weren't close he would just say they're talking.

I'm thinking it's going to be a huge deal we give him. Like 8-10 years.
