That's probably the only positive out of this.
I thought we were getting Roloson, apparently our "deal" was getting Parent back from injury.

Man it's going to be interesting how Leighton will react to the fact that he's now indeed our #1 guy.

I would love it if the flyers won the cup. I would love to throw this right back in your face. Oh and don't tell me the flyers can't win the cup. ANYONE CAN!

Sweet deadline. I wasted so much time on fourth period and the trade board.

A lot of these guys are talking about how we had a deep character check and we passed it, is that just referring to the losing or is there something more?

Corvo sucks. Glad he wasn't here, especially at this price.


Holmgren's ineptitude the past 3 years, cost this franchise today - the year we're supposed to be all in. Hopefully it's his head that rolls if we go out in Round 1 vs. a team who significantly got better during this trade season

Tim P said no trades were made. Homer really thinks we can compete with the Pens and Wash? I dont even want to think about SJS and Chicago.


Well I guess they wanted to go golfing early this year.

Actually improved!

I think they improved without doing anything.

Yesterday's TB game is how this team needs to play.

Hamhuis didn't get moved obviously because they were asking for alot. He is not worth any of our younger players. (yes even parent or coburn. We seem to give up on young d men pretty easy here)

Would you have trade Giroux / JVR / Carter for any of the junk that was dealt? not me....

Why is everyone not comfortable with Leighton? He is playing well. Were you comfotable with Emery? He didn't even play in the NHL last year and was just as much a ? as Leighton.

Homer is going to have a great summer.

1. He can not move any of our big contracts.
2. He has no picks.


Life is good.

Yeah, just roll with it...if Leighton carries us anywhere come playoff time I'll be shocked.

Hell, if Leighton reverts back to normal form...there's a chance we could miss the playoffs. Right now he's rocking a .926 SVPCT with us...the reality is that he's much closer to the .900 range over a long sample most likely. If he works on getting his average down to a normal level over the next 20 games, it could be something ugly.

Tampa Bay played like an AHL team. Nothing to get excited about.

So, we're gonna compete for the cup (????) with career-backup-on-hotstreak Michael Leighton in net, backed up by Brian Boucher?

YAY, HOMER!

I can't believe there isn't more anger over this. Biron-Nitty was infinitely better.

After 33 years of cheering for the Flyers , if they win a cup with Leighton in net after I said they 100% could not, someone saying I told you so on the internet won't cheapen the excitement I will have.

Wow. Really? He traded away Lupul and Sbisa who aren't exactly superstars, two first rounds, and a possible 3rd rounder for a hall of fame defender and a prospect. Last year's draft pick and this year's don't hold much value. This draft is pretty weak outside of the top five picks and last year's was ok but without a high pick and the Flyers needing help on D, it won't be missed too bad. The Flyers want to win a cup now. They don't want to wait five years and hope all the pieces fall into place. Sbisa was a good prospect, but he's not a number 1 D man and he is certainly not a hall of famer. Lupul was ok when he wanted to be but he was over paid and lazy. Everyone is complaining about how the Flyers don't plan for the future and crap like that but what do you want them to do? Trade accomplished players for young guys and hope they pan out? Or trade young guys for accomplished guys go with them. Prospects and picks are rarely worth more than an accomplished NHL player, especially in this situation. Pronger is a HOF player. Sbisa, Lupul, and whoever they got last year and get this year will not be. If the Flyers wanted to win now they had to do something. Luca Sbisa wasn't bringing a cup to Philly.
