Eklund Plus:Gilroy to Flyers or Hawks

http://www.hockeybuzz.com/blog/Eklun...morrow/1/20584

Quote:
He plays his final game in college tonight. Matt Gilroy, Hobey Baker Winner and solid puck moving D-man is likely going to be signed tomorrow by either the Philadelphia Flyers or the Chicago Blackhawks. I was told this past week that the Flyers may be Gilroy's first choice.

Whoever gets Gilroy gets a absolute stud. He is the epitome of charactor and skill. He is a hell of a story as well....and he is NHL ready at 24.

I will continue to chase this.

His [Gilroy's] game has blossomed while at Boston University, and many teams are now interested in his services.

But, the Flyers might have the inside track.

I received an e-mail this morning from someone close to the Gilroy hoopla who has said that Gilroy's camp has quietly made it known that the Flyers are tops on his list.

hope the Flyers get him. Would let us deal Carle and Jones easier, assuming this kid is NHL ready

i want him in chicago (out-of conference).

I wonder how this NCAA championship run has changed gilroy's contract perspectives. I know he wont be elegible for the playoffs, but does his team have to have at least 1 game remaining for him to collect the expected large signing bonus? Both the flyers and hawks will have games remaining, so he could still dress for a regular season game, especially if either team decides to rest some regulars.

I hope so, but as I've said with Bozak, it wouldn't the first guy out of college everyone is banging down the door for.

Hmm, a Flyer fan reporting a "rumor" that the most touted college free agent defenseman is going to join the Flyers? I'll bet vCash this doesn't happen if I can. Any takers?

not eligible. He had to have signed by the trade deadline, i believe, to play in the playoffs.

Not if you sign out of college.


We kill Eklund a lot for things, and he throws the Flyers into a lot of banter, but he is also pretty good with the Flyers too, but I think Timmy P feeds him info.

So he's not signing with Chicago or Philly. Remember Mike Mottau won a hobey baker too.

He's the exception not the rule.

Philly won't be able to sign him. The kid wants a $2 mil base salary and a 1-2 mil signing bonus. That's a 3-4 mil cap hit which the flyers cannot afford.

He doesn't get an ELC due to his age. He can sign for as much as a team wants to offer. Eklund is just blowing smoke up people's arses like usual.

Sucks for Flyers and Hawks fans. This basically means they're out of the running for him.

Now that he works as Comcast's stool pigeon, I'm sure he's a bit more in touch than he once was.
