A lot of people with nothing better to do on a Friday night than rip Flyers fans for supporting their team through thick and thin whilst their GM makes moves regardless of their success. How about you great fans relax a little bit considering nothing has happened.
Bruno Gervais "could" play there also, it doesnt mean he would be any good. Sekera is a good #4 shutdown defensemen, saying he has "upside" at this stage of his career is retarded. He is what he is, not like hes some 20 year old with room to grow.
@D_LEED: Flyers having chats with: Calgary, St. Louis, Edmonton, Carolina, among others.
Furthur proof this guy is just a tool and a fanboy. Hes just putting all these teams out there meanwhile earlier today theyve all been brought up by multiple insiders. I could of told you this and I dont claim to have a "source".
Hey man looks like we're just trying to move up or offer something to St. Louis for Pietrangelo before we offer-sheet him.
Just kidding Blues fans.

It must be fun that Holmgren gets to play a real life version of NHL 14 every year, and this coming from a Flyers fan.
I know we haven't won a Cup but you're a Flyers fan who doesn't think we've won consistently like those teams?
How is it news that teams are talking? The draft is one of the busiest times of the year. Too many rumours around the Flyers probably because of the rep that they've established themselves as a 'willing to deal' kind of team. Seems just like people trying to get page views and refreshing twitter feeds and gain followers, all these beat writers are really no better than Eklund.
This is the first time I truly feel another fan base understands what it was like to be an Islander fan with Mike Milbury as GM. Maybe not exactly that bad, but very very close. I want to buy your entire fan base a beer and listen to Muddy Waters.
Oh please. Are you an Islander fan? Do you realize what Milbury did? The Islanders have missed the playoffs 13 times since '92 and haven't won a playoff series since then. Come back once the Flyers hit lows similar to that.
Holmgren might have made some questionable moves but a lot remains to be seen in terms of what the players he has gotten in return become. Trading Richards, Carter, Bobrovsky and JVR aren't even close to what Milbury did and one season without the playoffs isn't even close to the turmoil that may franchises have gone thru.
Bryzgalov/Bobrovsky are probably fireable moves, and if the Flyers miss again Homer will be gone.
