I agree. Someone on here needs to start a petition or campaign or something. He is a cancer, and also just flat out sucks at his job.

They demoted Akeson and his 900k to the non-roster section.

I like how you think haha Ironically I have a copy of Ventura's latest book, he's a little out there on some things but more right then most people would ever want to admit.

Still doesn't account for a $10 mill raise for Goroux and a $30 mill deal for TT. That's only IF we can fend off the revenge OS from NSH.

Can't hurt that he is adding leadership. Following '06-'07, Holmgren added Briere and Smith who were both former captains to a young nucleus. Just did the same with Lecavalier and Streit.

Is Schenn's cap hit 3.1 throughout the entire year? Or does it drop if he doesn't achieve the bonuses?

THat's the truth. Had a tard on the main page, after I told him G was probably signing his extension tomorrow, tell me he would still get offer sheeted first thing in the morning. Summer time and the kiddies are bored.

HF should require your age to be verified and published under your screen name so we could tell whether to bother or not. It's never a time to bother, but that would really help the decision.

I'm completely against posting age here. Besides, I doubt the entry line would accept 3 digits.

Okay, what I really wanted to post is that I'm starting to get the feeling that dealing Meszaros for a middling pick / prospect and cap savings may be easier said than done, considering how the market is getting flooded with buyouts and non-tendered players in addition to the regular UFAs. I wouldn't be half surprised if Meszaros was put on waivers.

Think we should sign Tom Gilbert because we'll be using Coburn as trade bait and dumping Mez.

Any news on the Edmonton front today? I still think there is life to that trade. Also going off the fourth period reports that Coburn was just one piece of a major deal, would anyone oppose a deal with Coburn +Coburn going to Edmonton for Eberle? Something like that. Of course other pieces could be added. Just bored at work here and want some feedback right now!!

It's been rumored for awhile now that Edmonton is looking for truculence in their top 6

Also, I'm pretty sure Snider knows exactly how Holmgren handles things at the draft, was a big part of the game plan for the day and didn't go to observe Homer like a training manager at McDonalds.

What Panotch has is not insight; it's pure speculative crap.
I think you meant to say it's not insight; it's **** for brains.

I hope we can trick Edmonton into doing that trade.

I think you meant Couturier but right now I would like to keep our core together.

I don't know why Panotch still has a job. I'm really surprised Comcast puts up with BS. The day I take anything that clown says serious will be the first.

Pierre Mcguire called the writers here barbarians today, while it wasn't witty or funny it got Panotch and the rest of circus clowns all up and arms. Pierre 1 Philly Media 0.

Lock the Philly beat writers, Don Cherry and Pierre in a room.

I'd add Ron Hextall to that list too.

Someone should start a petition here; https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/

We The People of Philadelphia deserve a new beat writer for the Flyers. Qualification's involve being smarter then a doorknob and watching a Flyers game more then once a year.
