Trust me, every Flyers fan, plus Homer, Snider et all, wants Pronger to be healthy enough to comeback. If he does, someone goes. That's more of a best case scenario rather than worst.

ya that's why i had worst case scenario in quotes in my one post. Chris Pronger coming back is NOT a bad thing. Anyone looking for positives in Philly signing Weber are really grasping for straws here.

Ouch lol Yeah just fustrated that we lose Staal and Michalek and we haven't done anything as of late. We have a chance at a dynasty with our team all we need is 2 quality wingers I just hate Philly with a passion and hate seeing them make moves. Okay off my soap box

Why? I seriously doubt Doan is even seriously considering the Pens. I've seen nothing that indicates such.

My bold prediction: Tyler ****ing Kennedy will see more time with Crosby and he will have a career year, but he gets traded at deadline/or summer 'cause he is going to get paid. A lot more what he makes now.

He will score 16-19 goals before deadline. I said it first.

I have to agree. If Doan leaves Phx, I see him staying out west. Possibly Vancouver

He can't play any worse than he did last year. Even if he chips in a little, we are set. Thank God the term was very low on that.

I wonder if Justin Williams is available? He was easily one of the most noticable forwards for the Kings in the playoffs. Very shifty carrying the puck, has good a shot, and his patience with the puck especially around the net was surprising. Very dangerous.

"As if the Flyers didn’t have enough going on already. The Shea Weber Watch has fans excited beyond belief.

They might have something else to talk about.

According to John Gambadoro of Sports Talk Radio 620 KTAR in Phoenix, prized free agent Shane Doan is expected to meet with the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday. Doan has already met with the New York Rangers on Friday.

Doan would prefer to remain with the Coyotes, but the ownership situation may lead the captain elsewhere.

The 16 year veteran would be a great addition to the Orange and Black. He could provide veteran leadership for a rather young team, and could replace Jaromir Jagr on that first line. However, a few other teams have shown strong interest in Doan, including the Penguins, Red Wings, and Sharks."



Well. ****.

Yup, at this point Nashville matching the offer is a huge bullet dodged for us!

Doan is just taking his UFA tour. I wouldn't be surprised if he visits the Pens as well and I wouldn't be surprised if he's only making these visits just to drive the price up on a western team he wants to go to.
