So Cleary is on a try out contract according to Holmgrem.

They have agreed on a 3 year deal but he can't officially sign until they put Pronger on LTIR on opening night.

He doesn't fit. It's a shame, because if there was a Quebecois player on the Flyers who should have been targeted...but then again who knows how long he will stay healthy for next.

Speaking of the Flyers, I wonder if they will let Matt Read walk...

How well did Gange play for the flyers? I know he gets hurt a lot but is he effective when healthy?

IMO he's wrong on underrating the effect of a good stable goalie though.
Good goaltending and the flyers don't mix well at all/ The last great goalie they had I would say was Hextall

Right now Gagne has probably read a few comments in here about how easily he gets injured , got miffed and got up quickly from looking at his computer and twisted his ankle or broken a finger whilst hitting the table hard in a fit of rage.

Or both.--

Hell, even Lindbergh wasn't all that great.

However... Signing Cleary to that contract... Are you extremely dumb, Holmgren ?

I bet all players are just waiting for a call from Holmgren. It always means $$$

With regard to Pageau... in hindsight maybe it would have been better to draft him than Archambault and some even had the foresight to suggest it beforehand. But these issues are being being blown way out of proportion. Pageau scored 7 goals in 69 AHL games last year for a strong Binghampton team. How many would he have scord for Hamilton... it might have been even less but everyone remembers what he did in the playoffs against the Habs and agonizes over it.

Let's put this whole thing in perspective.

Bite your tongue. I don't know how much you actually saw of him, or how much you even know about him, but it's pretty well accepted that Lindbergh's untimely death likely prevented him from retiring with a handful of Vezinas. Best goalie of the U18s twice, followed by best goalie of the U20s, followed by AHL MVP in his rookie year (naturally winning rookie of the year as well), followed by making the NHL all-rookie team, then winning the Vezina just two years later.

This is all in the span of the decade between '75-'85. I only saw him on TV a couple of times in those days, but he's the first goalie I ever saw with my own eyes (young and lacking perspective as they were) who I associated with "Vezina" and "Best goalie in the league". In a league that had Kent Nilsson, Borje Salming, and Mats Naslund, etc, he won the award for top Swedish NHLer... as a rookie. Think about that.

I can tell you with great authority that Seguin had some real party/character/attitude issues, and it took a pretty good verbal thrashing from Crosby, believe it or not, when those two and Marchand were working out together in Halifax either last summer or the summer before, to smarten him up a bit. Crosby either picked up on it, heard enough about it, or was in the situation and ended up saying something about it - I can't exactly remember the story. But it happened in Cole Harbour, and it came from Crosby's close cousin who is one of my brother's good friends. Whatever that means to anyone, hahaha.

TS, the trainer doesn't sound like a psycho. He sounds like a pure ****** bag. But that fits well in that town.

Hey... i think i heard the same thing from my half-sister's friend who knows someone who is a three time removed half-cousin on the side of the brother in law of the pal of the guy who mows the lawn where her mother 's sister's grandmother sometimes goes to buy food. I think. Or something real close to that...
