A lot. At least with Homer as our GM. Our 1st, 2nd, Laughton, Read, Simmonds, Meszaros, maybe even the Schenn brothers or Couturier if we're unlucky.

No thanks. Shelley and Lilja will sit in the press-box for the majority of the next season and then they'll be gone. Harper will spend the rest of his contract down in the AHL.

A big no to Nash's contract. While he's really great hockey player and all but his contract just is something crazy.

I'm really starting to like the idea of getting Peter Mueller. I still think he has offensive talent that hasn't surfaced. The injuries are obviously a huge concern. Its worth the risk of a 1-2 year deal.

Three wishes:

1- Don't do anything stupid Homer
2- Don't do anything stupid Homer
3- Don't do anything stupid Homer

This includes:

Signing Carle for even a mil less than he will get.
Signing a fourth line center to a Gaustad like contract.
Trading for Nash at anywhere near supposed asking price.
Overpaying for Ryan.
Overpaying for Tootoo because he was born to be a Flyer.

Please just get a backup signed at step away from the madness.

I might be in the minority here, but I would be perfectly fine with doing nothing among the forwards and defense.

Give Gustaffson or Bourdon a chance to develop and Schenn to have a bounce back season and then dispose of the token 2nd round to improve the D at the deadline. There are a number of UFA options on D next season. (Grossmann would have received more as a UFA than he did).

Give more ice time to Couturier, Schenn, and Read, including PP time. Let the young players develop. They will be better defensively in the future. UFA wise there are a lot of options for a fourth line center. There is no need to get in a bidding war for a player they "covet". (Although Talbot worked out well).

Of course that would leave at least 7.5mm in cap space (once Pronger is put onto LTIR), so it is not going to happen.

I would love Nash as long as they don't have to get rid of Schenn or Couts. Mez would have to be dumped too. Then again I want Voracek to stay too. And Simmonds to stay! my my. You have to give to get and Nash is a great player.

It's not a good time to be any teams fans. They are all nervous about over paying players and what moves their GM's will make. Comes with the territory of free agency. I just hope that Homer won't trade the two stud centers. There is only two players I would over pay for and that is Parise and Suter. Suter I wouldn't mind giving a long term contract to(10-12 years) to bring the cap hit down some. He would still probably be a very serviceable defenseman at the age of 38-40 and could retire without it being on our cap. Parise I would be scared to though, forwards decline much more rapidly then defenders after their prime. All in all, im more excited because I trust Homer will try his best to make the team better.

Nah, Homer has been training really hard in Dagobah and will now use his newfound technique to somehow get this team to fit under the cap

Parise-Giroux-Semin
Hartnell-Brière-Voracek
Simmonds-Couturier-Read
Wellwood-Schenn-Talbot
Rinaldo

Suter-Coburn
Timonen-Grossmann
Meszaros-Schenn
Lilja

Bryzgalov
Hasek

(Shelley has retired to live peacefully in Kashyyyk)

Agreed.

Nervous Homer is going to botch this badly, especially reacting to Pittsburgh.

The core should be off the table unless the overpayment is crazy.

NO OVERPAYING.

I would rather the Flyers stand pat than make a bad move.

This team needs another defender-- yet the Flyers are "in" on a ton of players.

The Flyers would be eating $500K on Shelley. Easier just to send him to the minors.


And then they'll probably tell him not to report and just release him.

I'm quietly hoping they sign Prust to a Talbot like contract (albeit closer to 2.1).

It doesn't fit. He would just be a good Flyer, that is all.

How soon after 12 does the frenzy begin?

.. and how much does it make you believe in tampering?

Does anyone else thing a GDT for free agency would be a good idea? Other boards have it and we can just put everything news related from today in there?

Not a surprise but no last-second deal coming between Flyers and Matt Carle. He'll test the market at noon.
