Toliet Paper at hand.

I think we will trade at least 2 players and sign 2.

The 2 we sign won't be 'huge' signings but complimentary.

I'm pretty sure the Flyers won't be active in terms of free agent signings. Tim Pistachio mentioned on csnphilly.com this morning that the Flyers and Predators nearly had a trade in place for Lecavalier, but Nashville wanted the Flyers to retain salary in the trade. I'm beginning to fear that Hextall's hands are severely tied by Holmgren's bad spending and that he's going to have to do some fancy footwork to get out of some of those bad contracts Holmgren signed.

Buffalo will be busy because they're $16 million below the floor, so they'll have lots of money to spend and I expect that Tim Murray will be signing quite a few players to get to the floor.

Yeah, I don't expect them to be players in this years market.

Maybe that's for the best.

I would be looking to move VL and Grossmann. Kick the tires on a LW and a few cheap pieces to round out the roster AND a backup netminder.

Edit: I said looking to: The cap makes this hard.

I'm thinking we'll spend most of today laughing at all the stupid contracts handed out, instead of the other way around for once. And that's fine by me.

Trim some fat Hexy, and keeps things simple for now. Your time for major moves will come, just not yet.

Could Buffalo be a realistic option for Vinny? They need a cap hit (or five), and Vinny isn't nearly good enough to throw off their tanking efforts. Could also serve as a mentor in a year or two as they start to put the pieces together after the big McDavid push.

From Eklund so take it for what it's worth...


Flyers Will Look at Gorges if Leafs Can't Sway Him. (E3)

What mystical cap space are they using to make these signings?

Maybe they really do have a deal in place for Vinny.

Edit: I wouldn't hate Gorges, but the term on his deal is going to be too long. He would be a much better option than Grossmann or Schenn to play along side of Streit/MacDonald.

Holy **** no Niskanen, he's gonna get grossly overpaid by someone and I'm not trying to see if the Flyers can assemble a 30+ million D

Yep someone's going to give him at least 6/39, maybe even 7 years.

DAL trades Alec Chiasson, Alex Guptill, Nicholas Paul and 2nd round pick in 2015 to OTT for Jason Spezza and Ludvig Karlsson. #TSN

I hope it's 7 x 7. That'll make MacDonald's deal look better.

I think that's where Lecavalier will go, but the Flyers will have to eat some salary. As much as Hextall might not want to, he's going to have to eat at least $1.5 million a year for the duration of the contract.

That's what they originally wanted but things have just changed a good deal. I think they may go for it. They prob should go with it tbh.
