To paraphrase Charelton Heston, the Flyers have "finally actually did it".....They now have capspace of zero dollars. However they do have 3.8 in AAV so they were more than able to fit in this deal. In fact I expect them to add more salary lol. Seriously nice pick me up for the Flyers. This does almost certainly mean they will be moving out Brierre and others though.
And yet they still have no goaltending. It's amazing that a team with such a consistently glaring weakness could continue to ignore it as much as they have.
No thanks. I just don't think a goon is what the Bruins need.
A big guy who can bang, play the boards and score a bit or a decent 3-4 d-man is way more important.
Maybe he's not what we need....but, we could keep him in the press box as the 13th for intimidation purposes. He can play, he's not that much of a liability. I could see him used for like 10-15 games for the remainder of the season. He's been through hell and back if you look into his background. Plus I'm pretty sure he's buddies with Lucic.
Just look at Toronto...they went out and claimed McLaren off waivers. They're pretty gooned up and not doing too too shabby. McLaren, Orr, Brown, Fraser.
if steven weiss is about to be dealt... id definitely be willing to give up a first rounder to rent him.
he isnt really a winger... but kelly has often played wing. Weiss has had three 20 goal seasons in a roll and is considered a bit of an underachiever. Everyone expected even more from him. Playing in florida is difficult to succeed though.
if we got Weiss to help the third line... hed probably work out very well with peverly/kelly. we could then make a decesion whether we wanted to resign him for the future. He might be a cheaper option for a top 6 center then Krecji is. Maybe we resign Weiss and deal Krecji to save some money for the next couple years?
I dont think many teams would offer much more then a first for him. He might not be the very best option for us... but I think he makes us a better team and there is reasons why he might fit into our long term plans... I definitely would kick the tires at least if he really is going to be on the move.
we definitely have cap room for a couple pickups. Id like to see it happen cause we have a legitimate shot at a second cup
