He probably took the lucrative Flyers offer to pay for a trip to the moon.

I wouldn't feel too bad for Bryz though. He's still gonna get paid $23 million in total over the course of the next 14 years, and that's of course not even counting whatever extra money he'll make signing with his next team, whether it be in the NHL or KHL.

I wouldn't be so sure that all of these four guys are interested in playing 3rd fiddle in Sochi. Bäckström would fit that bill much better. But he's not actually going to play unless there's a ton of injuries. So basically if Bäckström goes to Sochi, he's most likely going there for a 2-week vacation.

Koivu and Granlund were present at the Sochi meeting yesterday as well.

I could see Tampa swooping him up. They need a #1 badly. Not his fault that Philly's D sucked horribly.

As a goaltender, no, nothing wrong. As a teammate, apparently there's a lot wrong with him, if you believe even half the rumors.

I would have to think that, if he were a team player, he wouldn't have been bought out.

I find that more creepy than funny. Seems kinda messed up to be allowed to release stats like that, makes the city look. . . . . I don't even know.

Tampa Bay has Ben Bishop. They are (will be) fine in net.

Isn't that what Columbus said with Mason after his Calder performance? And I'm still not sold on Bobs.

Except with Bishop and Lindback, Yzerman is actually right.

Tampa needs to work on that defense more than anything. 3rd in goals per game but 26th in goals against. Bishop and Lindback should be fine if they can get some actual NHL defense in front of them.

Victor Hedman for Tom Gilbert.

Make it so.

I know this is par for the course for Philly...

http://deadspin.com/lets-watch-a-fly...ov-u-574043008

But Randy Miller should be fired, or the Flyers should revoke his media status.

Bryz didn't want to talk to a member of the media immediately after being bought out. I'm going to air out all the unsubstantiated rumors i can think of.

I love the deadspin comment:

"I'd like to add that Bryz is a selfish lover"

Colorado is ridiculously stupid if they pass on Seth Jones, their organization being in such desperate need of defense with him being such a special player already, can't believe they'd pass on him.

That'd be not really surprising now that Roy and the new staff are there.

I dunno, at first I thought it was stupid as well but like Fletcher says, you take the best player available. A part of me still thinks they take Jones, but a 1-2 punch of Mackinnon and Duchene down the middle sounds pretty good. They can always trade Stastny and O'Reilly to help on the defensive side of things.

It's all a big if, but if Seth Jones is this next generations Chris Pronger minus I hope the dirty side of Pronger then i'd take him in a heartbeat first.

Colorado is ridiculously stupid if they draft a player - who they supposedly have ranked 4th in the draft - first overall just because of need. Of course, there's no way of knowing how their rankings actually look, unless it's Sakic and Roy's next move to just openly publish them.

Considering Edmonton I don't think drafting for need in the top five is stupid. Best player available is subjective anyway. And if they're forced to shop one of their other, more established and more ready forwards for defence later they might find that no one can match the value...they're going to want a great young defender to grow with the team.

Those are already done though.
