It sucks to be Martin Biron

Martin Biron is a really nice guy and a decent goaltender who can hold his own in a starter position, but either he or his agent is just a too greedy *******.

Paul Holmgren has been in talks with Marty to resign him at least since December but unfortunately with the cap issues the Flyers already have and the numbers I heard Marty wanted (4 Million or more) he was not going to be re-signed and tested the free agency market.

Now free agency came, teams signed goalies but Marty was not signed as apparently all other teams that actually had spots for goalies available thought just like Paul Holmgren.

And now Martin Biron is sitting without a contract in a dryed up Market where every team in the NHL either already has two goalies, one of which is a designated starter, or is committed to a young and talented goalie already.

I guess this is what can happen during free agency too.

If he takes 3m a year, he will be signed really soon.

People called me an idiot for saying it at the deadline but Biron to backup Mason in CBJ is looking more realistic.

Yah, he's clearly the loser of FA day1 for goalies. I think if you look at all the teams most of the teams have now patched the major holes. He'll have to take a small 1 year deal in a place like Chicago ... maybe Tampa ... not to many options now.

Also sucks for Josh Harding...very good young goaltender ready to take on a starter role...Minnesota screwed up because they wanted a top 6 forward in return plus a pick from what i read...now they have an RFA goalie who is still looking for a raise and icetime.

Biron is asking too much. There has been questions about his mental toughness as well.

really? no other big name players?

Bouwmeester, Sedin twins, Khabibulin??? Never heard of them.

I agree, tho, Biron would be an interesting fit in with Mason. Some vet experience to coach him along a bit, a decent backup man between the pipes would be nice, and combined with the signing of the new goalie coach??? Mason would be in a real nice place. Bring him on.

Are you guys blind? What would Biron do with the BJ's when they just signed Conklin? I swear to god the people on this board are getting more clueless daily.

Marty Biron does not suck at all as a goalie. It seems he played his cards wrong, but people have never gave him the credit he deserves. He was good for the Flyers.

Sorry, but he's not a very good goalie and that's why he's out of work.

They've got Smith, and a wealth of goaltending prospects. They're not in the need of a starter, maybe Biron would work in some type of 1B situation.
