These goalies are all signing for less than what we even all thought, Holmgren wanted LEighton all along. There is no way he is that ****ing stupid. Are there any options for Turco/NAbby anymore. Maybe we can get one of them on a 1 year deal,, PLEASE do not start the year with Boosh/Leighton

Two years in a row Homer makes his move for a goalie before July 1st and then goalies equal or better sign for peanuts elsewhere...

Grow some ****ing patience numbnuts.

This off-season and this Leighton contract just keeps getting worse by the hour.

This ruined my ****ing week. I am in Flin Flon ( all my buddies are FLyers fans) for a weeks holidays and we will be spending the whole time talking about this ****. **** he is stupid,, I have to beleive Turco is still coming though and he was just testing the waters. Also, there has to be a pretty major trade coming too. Maybe once the Kings sign Kovy, we are trading Harts and Boosh for one of the goalies .

My thoughts exactly. I'll just do this.



Maybe all the UFA goalies will sign and we'll HAVE to trade for Schneider/Harding. It's not as good as the other options, but it's worlds better than Leighton/Boosh. UGH.

Maybe it would have been better if we missed the playoffs?

Now we all have the confirmation. This team is run by a moron.

That being said, his inability to develop a clue on the goalie market is one thing, but even I am amazed at the Shelley signing. Truly and utterly remarkable.

I will forever hate this man. I will never give him ****ing credit. This team isn't winning a cup. He has absolutely no idea how to run a team.

I still refuse to believe that Homer could be this stupid. He almost always follows a good or lucky move with something right out of left field. I'm a tad choked right now but there's got to be something more to these signings. As others have said, there's going to be a trade made here in pretty short order. I shudder as I type this.

One would assume that a Carle trade makes a lot of sense.

I'm just so pissed he went and signed Leighton prior to the 1st rather than waiting it. Seriously, no reason to rush.

This is how I feel. I mean, there has to be something else goalie-wise...right???

Moose just signed in Jersey, Turco is still floating around out there. Nabby is still out there but the money isn't. I'm even thinking that maybe a deal fell through today. Like Jester said earlier, Matt Carle should be expendable.

Hey can the flyers still afford a big name goalie, or are they more likely to stick with Boucher and Leighton?

Think there's only 4 goalies left in the crop worth looking at.

It's going to be pretty exciting if Leighton reverts to previous suck and gets himself waived next year...

i agree, this is something i expect as well. i'd say it would redeem homer, but im not sure it would since it would mean homer thinks shelley can fill in for hartnell.

If?

I mean, I think it's very, very, very likely that we'll see much more of the real Michael Leighton next year.

And we aren't going to like it.

Well, Turco might have been better off taking the $2M after all, hard to believe that Niittymaki got the best UFA goalie deal.

chances are good that happens. I wonder though if Shooter would do it knowing how bad it will make him look.
