Ugh, Tie Domi on the Flyers? That would be completely awful...what good would a washed up former heavyweight turned cheapshot artist who has little hockey skills bring to this team? The Flyers already have a fighter who doesn't fight but thinks he's a skill player in Brashear. No thanks. I'd rather let Fedoruk toil away on the 4th line that ever have Tie Domi on this team.
Niedermeyer...I'd like him on this team a lot, though. Top d-man, plays strong at both ends, and fast. I don't see anything to not like there. I'm not so sure about Demitra, but we'll see about that. And Handzus for a d-man? I don't see why you'd do that if you get Niedermeyer. Then again, I don't think watching the Flyers would be the same without Zeus's crazy hockey hair flying around out there (well, flying around being relative).
And this is so much better, to be talking hockey again. God I missed this...
Oh, okay. That's good because I don't think anybody saw that one coming. Well, the potential for an agreement had been talked about ad nauseum for the past several weeks, but let's not get caught up in semantics.

The Flyers are going to have to do some serious shuffling if they plan on trying to fit Neidermeyer under the cap. I just don't see how it can be done unless they plan on walking away from Roenick, too. It might not count against the books (but then again it might), but buying out all these players is going to cost the organization money. Buying players like LeClair or Amonte out because they chew up so much cap room is one thing; buying players like Roenick out to fit other players not already on the roster under the cap is another. I'm going to have to see it to believe it.
A $40M cap my backside. Nobody has suggested that it would be anything different than several not unsubstantial million dollars less.
I'd love to see Niedermayer on the Flyers. He is exactly the type of defenseman the Flyers could use.
However, I wouldn't want to see Handzus go at this point. Assuming they added a defenseman of Niederymayer's caliber, it wouldn't make sense to me to lose a centerman on a team that might have two rookies at that position for another defenseman.
Personally, I wouldn't mind Domi on the team. He looks like a goomba.
