Yes, please sign him. Your team will never turn over another puck, I promise.

I think you forgot the Is he really that bad? He's always played well when we face you guys.

No he is not really that bad. He is just the easiest to blame for everyone around here.

No, he's not bad at all. He's the scapegoat of the fans. Don't overextend him (as the Flyers often did) and he will be good.

Not the easiest to blame. He really is that bad in my opinion. I understand that he's not the only issue, but just because bill meltzer claims its unwarranted doesn't change the fact that I've played hockey for 20 years and I know what sport I'm watching. He isnt a terrible defenseman, but one that does more harm than help for our team for the price he will warrant, or will warrant in a new contract.

He is easily intimidated along the boards, and is quicker to flutter a pass out to whoever is around rather than calmly make a play to his defensive partner. He will shy away from any physical application of positional defensive play and would rather reach with his stick than take the body and often ends up being beat to the inside. He can put up secondary assists from the neutral zone, but my 11 year old cousin has a harder shot than he does. And even that wouldn't be an enormous issue if he had any sort of ability to shoot the puck into anything other than a defensive player coming out to pressure him.

I agree will bill on most subjects, but he's wrong in this regard. If Matt Carle is re signed by this team, I will be more infuriated than I've ever been with this team. I admitt that Matt Carle isnt the worst defenseman in the world. He has flaws just like every defenseman, but I cannot warrant giving him any more money than he currently makes, and even what he currently makes is pushing it.

This really is a victory for you guys though. You should be happy. You won't have to worry about the flyers defense taking them anywhere next season.

From what i have seen, the cap hit is going to be something like 4.25 a year for 3 years. That i can live with...

4.25 for 3 years is quite a bit less than I expected. I'd be kind of happy with that. I'd also expect them to make a run at someone else as well.

$4.25m for 3 years isn't too bad. We still need a #1 Dman though.

Your D isn't the problem. Your goalie is.

Sounds like he's taking a discount. Not a bad deal. I expect Seids to get that in the next year.

The D needs some work too. It was atrocious at times.

I wouldnt say its a problem instead, but rathet in conjunction. I have a feeling that Bryz is going to be considerably better next season, though.

You're the only person not named Jody Shelley who thinks that.

4 years @ 4.25 is a very good deal for us.

now we need to sit tight, and draft a defenseman.

maybe move up 5-10 picks.

Coburn-Carle
Timonen-Prospect (Griffin Reinhart?)
Grossmann-Meszaros
(Gustafsson/veteran)

really isnt that bad looking. (we will add at the deadline)
edit: nothing major please, STAY THE COURSE!

Ryan Murray is the only defenseman in this draft who should be in the NHL next year, IMO.

Where did you see/hear this number from?

I don't think it will be that low honestly. 4-5 years for 19-24 million. Unless this word was of course tweeted by Bobby Mackenzie.

^^^^ Was just about to ask. Where is anyone reporting a 4.25M cap hit? That would be quite a discount imo, especially after Jones just got 4M per in Colorado.
