A decent Panaccio article.

http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/spo...y/12320500.htm

Pretty interesting article by Panaccio (Rare, I know) about just how the deals went down for the Flyers last week. Mentions the payroll being $36.8 million, by the way.

If it asks for an account to read the whole article, the email is HFboards@dodgeit.com and the pass is abc123. Creative, I know.

It was still light outside when Clarke reached Hitchcock, vacationing in Kamloops, British Columbia, and told him he was signing Forsberg. Hitchcock giggled.

"I thought he was joking," Hitchcock said. "Then I thought he was screwing with me because he knew I was taking a break."

Clarke hung up on his coach in frustration. Hitch didn't believe him.

He says the payroll is right now $36.8M?

Yes..

A few hours later, it was over. Forsberg, Hatcher and Rathje were all Flyers, Roenick was an ex-Flyer, and the club was back under the cap at $36.8 million.

What a great take on why the Roenick deal took longer than expected.

Quote:
Kings GM Dave Taylor showed interest. Taylor wanted to deal a player in return. Clarke replied he didn't have cap room. Clarke then called Phoenix GM Mike Barnett. Again, the holdup was players in return. Moving Roenick now seemed in jeopardy, although San Jose and also Columbus had jumped in by 9 p.m.
And here, many people were thinkning BC was stalling to get decent prospects in return. With the makeup of the NHL today, I definitely think Clarke did the right thing.

That might be the best article Tim P. has ever wrote.

Here is a Boston Herald article that mentions the Bruins and Flyers as co-favorites by an unnamed scout.
