This Larry Brooks article mentions the Flyers

Towards the end, there is a quote mentioning a possible dispersal draft involving Flyers' players being sent to Nashville and Pittsburgh in order to get under the cap. I am sure this is all predicated on a potential deal, however.

It will never happen, the high end owners won't allow it.

There was an accompanying article surrounding Marty Brodeur and the possibility of the lockout going into next season. This is all exhausting.

They're all just talking, all being told what to say. There are a few guys speaking their minds here and there but most of the high profile players (not Pierre Dagenais or Mike Commodore) are reading from a script

Do you remember when the NBA Finals was broadcast on tape delay in the late 70's (Seattle-Washington comes to mind) because the demand was limited? Seems like eons ago. I just hope reps on both sides have the game's interest at the forefront and check their egos.

First off Trevor Linden only made the suggestion after he was asked how would teams like the Flyers get under the cap...second dont bother reading Larry Brooks articles. He's a typical New York writer. He thinks very big of himself. Like most sports writers during this strike/lockout he's backing the players. Why do you ask? Because if he doesnt he knows he wont get the interviews like he did in the past. Its no bid deal to tick off an owner or a GM. Getting interviews with GMs and owners are never a writers bread and butter. Why do u think they all get information from anonymous sources? becuase they get their info from everyone but the GM or owner. After a game who are you going to talk to? A player thats who. Ive heard him do interviews before and hes as arrogant as they come. Just an opinion on my part.

Yeah, they can have LeClair and Burke, it would save the Flyers buying them out.
How would it work when the only players available would be the overpaid bums that nobody wants?

More bollocks from Brooks.

Check out the article in the Fort Worth Star Telegram (requires subscription) called "The Man Who Killed the NHL?" about Gary Bettman. It can be found by going to Google.com. Enter "Gary Bettman" after selecting "news" and it is near the top of the results shown.

At one point, the writer says Lou Lamoriello and Bob Clarke "usurped" Bettman's authority regarding how the League should be promoted and publicized. He also made a point that all owners support Bettman even "the influential Ed Snider."

It is an interesting article.

Yeah, I seen that article. It is in the hockey section of the San Jose Mercury News. Registration required , but is free. Someone could post a link. I was most interested in the fact of the enormous increase in revenues under Bettman. Would think that Clarke and Lamoriello would have put the skids on some marketing innovations rather than jazzing them up.

Who knows what the Cap is going to be anyway, but this being said Leclair,TA, and Burke wont be sent to Nashville in a dispersal draft. Those players more then likely will be bought out and will be free to choose where they play.

with a new cap, the NHL IMO, will have a grandfather rule for older(more expensive contracts). this will somehow allow teams to honor these contracts without being under the cap. once these contracts are over, the team goes back to regular operations as far as the cap in concerned.
