Bobbby Mac was talking about how he can easily see Perry getting upwards of 8 even 9 million on the open market. You have to believe we would probably be right there in the bidding too. We always are.

I think i'm the only guy in the world who doesn't really want Corey Perry. I mean, the guy is a helluva talent, and I do admit I've only seen a few Ducks games here and there the past couple years, and even though his season a little while ago was phenomenal...it's just... I don't know.

Everyone wants a young stud #1 defenseman here right now, but sometimes it doesn't work that way. There's no issue w/ signing a couple older first pairing guys for a few years while you develop your own #1 via the draft.

If Perry comes anywhere close to that, then all of the sudden even with his recent downturn in play, Ovechkin starts to look like a bargain again.

I don't see there being any way that Perry gets 8M or 9M per. I think 7.5 is a better estimate.

Well what was the rumored offer the Flyers offered Parise? 110 million over 13 years. That's 8.4 million per year. I don't think it is crazy at all he gets that number, especially with the new CBA rules.

If that's the case he won't be coming here. In fact he'll probably end up going to a team we would expect (kinda like the wild last year landing both prizes FA's).

Phoenix fans were saying it would cost us B. Schenn + Couturier. And everyone talks about Flyers fan over valuing Couturier.

I fully support putting the screws to Phoenix with OEL in the same fashion as we did with Weber. Of course OEL is not Weber, but I think Phoenix's financial situation is actually more tenuous than Nashville's was.

Of course it is unlikely to work, but once again, it offers us the best potential for filling that spot without surrendering our best young talent.

I like the idea of Iginla for 2 years until Booby Ryan is available, but the wait.... F

If Clarkson makes it to UFA status I would expect the Flyers to try and sign him.

It would definitely cost Couturier +.

But the Coyotes have reason to trade their best d-man who's still that young and only getting better unless their forced too. I don't think an offer sheet will work TBH. Situations like Weber don't come up as often as people seem to think.

I hate Clarkson so much, but if he was a Flyer I'd probably love him

Beginning to think that we aren't getting a #1 defenseman unless we get a #1 overall pick or become willing to trade Couturier.

OEL would be the prime target in that case I would assume.

You don't need the #1 overall pick to get a #1 defenseman. They can be had all over the draft or even as undrafted free agents (Boyle, Girardi, Giodano). Immediately speaking, you are right that you will not be getting one in free agency or without breaking the bank in a trade, i.e. Couturier +++. The Flyers will have to improve overall defensive depth instead of getting one great guy for the near future.

Agreed. Stock the farm with above-average D prospects and provide the best environment for them to grow. I'm looking forward to seeing what Gustafsson can provide this season.

if we have the winning lotto numbers. I do think the focus of the next 2 drafts HAS to be D men and then WING mixed in.

Bryz is here to stay, we have C's up the ying yang that ALL other teams seem to want.

Good puck mover and a DFD and then a sniper.

Now how do we go about rigging the draft

Plus, I think you could also get a nice package for Kimmo Timonen at the TDL.

I actually think they might do that this year, at least if the people who run the NHL are smart. The worst possible thing is for Seth Jones to end up in Canada or Columbus.

It would be a bad idea for Seth Jones to wind up in Toronto?

The draft isn't going to be rigged anyway.
