Hey, no problem. Sometimes, Holmgren happens. We learned to accept it, now the rest of the hockey world must do the same.

If the cap goes down, there will 100% be an amnesty option--there just has to be. Timonen is gone after next year--or back at a greatly reduced number.

I expect Nashville will match this--but the Flyers did all they could, so it is hard to fault Holmgren.

To the poster above--no, I don't trade Schenn + Schenn to get out picks back and get them to swallow the deal. That was the price to get Weber and sign him to a slightly cap-friendlier contract.

If Homer and Poile have a gentlemans agreement on a trade, then why would Homer max out the offer so that Nashville will have trouble matching it? It doesn't add up.

Not sure if this has been posted yet but TSN is reporting that Weber will make $14mil in each of his first four years. I don't think Nashville is going to be able to match that...

Step 1: Say no offense to appease fanbase you've invaded.
Step 2: Finish with something both insultingly sarcastic and obnoxious
Step 3: ???

PROFIT

I was on a JetBlue flight last month and the electrical system that provided in-flight satellite transmission was not functioning properly. We all received a $25 credit "on a future flight" (as was addressed by a staffer pre-boarding). While some passengers seemed distrurbed by the nuisance, through a thorough squinting of the eyes and a relaxed but challenged tone, I mentioned that the entertainment was secondary to other possible flaws when "electrical issues" and planes are mentioned in the same sentence.

Posts like this annoy me.

The Flyers and Weber/ agent are both operating under good faith within the boundaries of the existing CBA. There's no double-standard here--I'm pretty sure Snider and company are not among those clamoring loudest for a roll-back, nor were they fierce advocates of parity in the first place.

There could be behind-the-scenes negotiations. The two have a past and also worked together on some TEAM USA squads. Poile played college hockey in Boston.

What stinks though if we get Weber and there is a lockout..the suspense of actually seeing Weber play will prolly kill a lot of Flyers fans....I'll be on a suicide watch if my Flyers fix is deferred until Dec/Jan...ugh!
