Vinny will get 6m this year so maybe teams are waiting until next year.

Is there a big bonus paid by us soon, if so could we trade him after the bonus ?

Is losing Lecavalier considered a major change? "Major change" to me is moving a core piece. VL isn't a core piece.

Trading Hartnell is a major change. My point is, don't take him at his word at this stage. All these guys lie and spin. That's not a criticism, that's just the business.

2 million bonus. But no one knows when it's due to my knowledge. But after that bonus is paid,if paid this summer, his real money will only be 3.625 mill per season. So some teams might like that. Either way, I think our only chance to move him is after all the big names get signed or traded. See who got left empty handed and see if the want Vinny and Vinny wants them.

Exactly. It's pretty sad that fans still eat up all the PR garbage, positive or negative. They're not going to share their entire plan with us all.

Dreger just said that both parties want a move to happen & that both parties are confident a solution will get done. However he did mention it will be a tough sell & that there isn't really much noise right now but things can pick up soon.

He said logically most connect us & Nashville as a partner but it's been pretty quiet on Nashville's front in regards to Vinny.

Maybe Hextall already has a deal in place or a couple teams interested but they are waiting for Vinny's signing bonus to go through for a smaller budget team to take him?

July 1st - Vinny gets his $2m bonus and Stastny, Kesler, Spezza and BRichards find their new homes

July 2nd - Vinny gets traded

We'll not only have to eat Vinny's bonus, but I suspect pick up a bad contract (smaller than Vinny's but enough to make him affordable) to boot. So it'll be Vinny for "name the overpaid dog" and a 4th rd pick (Hextall is committed to regaining some of the picks Holmgren threw away). We'll save a million this season and more 2-3 years out.

Im a really big fan of picking up winnik. This guy is a perfect 4th liner.

and this forward group i could see although not much different, a lot better.

Schenn-Giroux-Voracek (Good Speedy 1st Line)
Akeson-Couturier-Read (Was one of the best lines in playoffs)
Umberger-Lecavalier-Simmonds (who knows.. I dont really like umberger at all tbh)
Raffl-Laughton-Winnik ( very similar to palmeri-bonnio-winnik and that worked out well)

And Then we Have Bellemare and Rinaldo availble when needed.
Although i really wish Umberger was gone. and raffl was 3rd line and bellemare was 4th.


Defense wise i see no transactions to be made. Ghost up. Grossmann gone. Thats about it.


Coburn Ghost
Schenn Macdonald
Timonen Streit

^ i get confused on left and right but u know what i mean for pairings

If some how, some way Vinny ends up on Giroux's LW, might as well trade all our LW's away, as they're all broken. If they can't beat out that pilon for that position *shudder*

Le Cadaverlier and his horrendous contract need to be buried in an unmarked grave somewhere other than Philadelphia. Let some other team exhume this corpse like Holmgren stupidly did....

Lecavalier's agent, Kent Hughes has permission to speak to teams re: trade. Vinny gets a $2 mil bonus on July 1, so trade before is tough.

Lecavalier is owed less money than Hartnell and is still a better player. Vinny can be moved.

After July 1st...he would only make $3.625 mill in real money over the next 4 years with the cap hit of $4.5 mill. For a team that wants to pay less than the cap hit, it's a good deal for them.

He will be traded...but not for much. I just don't want to take crap back.

Actual quotes on the csn facebook regarding trading Vinny.

"If they do this seasons gunna be hell"

"Hex your nuts don't trade vinny whenever we trade our centers they go other places and dominate Richards and carter did it even RJ umberger bosse things"

"They should hold onto him at least he scores some goals, need to drop Coutier"

"Trade him along with a valuable piece like coburn, that's the only way to get rid of him. And take a pick back."

Well at least that confirms that but I wasn't expecting Vinny to be moved before July 1st with or without that news anyway. I still think we're going to take back a lesser terrible contract in return but it is what it is.

I'd be fine with Stalberg. At least he fills a need.

Trade proposal I made in general thread : Why not swapping Vinny for Briere since Hextall like former flyers player ? What do you think ?
