I absolutely cannot believe this.

I would dance with joy if we ever acquired Richards. He's not a guy you can trade, he's one that retires with your jersey. This is insanity.

The playoff rivalry Montréal and Philadelphia were building is going to suffer, now that Gagné, Carter and Richards are gone... Carter was pretty good against us, if I remember well.

I honestly am sorry for you guys. This is like if we learned Subban and Price had been traded in the same day. Suicide hotlines would be totally overloaded here.

Doesn't really change anything, but still.

According to Capgeek, you only have $7.5 mil free now that Bryz is signed. Simmons and Voracek are both RFA and will eat up a large chunk of that $7.5.

So unless there are other moves coming down the pipe (Versteeg?), you still don't have enough cap room for B. Richards.

Does that include Bryz? I checked a minute ago and it was $7.5 mil WITH Bryz.

It'll bring back part of the heart of the team.

That was before Bryz.

We have 7.5769 with Voracek and Simmonds to sign.

So we won't have more than $2.5mil in cap space going into free agency if we don't trade someone.

I understand the Carter deal, but overall with Carter & Richards gone... did we get hosed? Will Schenn even pan out or are we just totally ****ed this season?

Is everyone really that angry about these trades? Am I the only one that was getting a little frustrated with Richards and Carter? I'm not exactly thrilled with the events of today but it seemed like Richards and Carter were the future/face of the franchise for all of 2-3 years then all of a sudden JVR and Giroux seemed to take that title.

Now we have one of the best prospects in hockey and the 8th overall pick to help restock the farm system, we have a franchise goalie (for better or for worse), and we still have the flexibility to make more moves. With all the rumors about locker room problems and choking in the playoffs (for Carter at least), is this really the end of the world?

I can't even believe this. I'm not saying its bad, just shocking. Time will tell who wins this deal, but good gravy. I am absolutely stunned. Richards was my favorite player. I have two Richards jerseys. I thought it safe to cozy up to a player with a 12 year deal wearing the "C" on his jersey. Proved me wrong, Flyers. Proved me wrong.

Definitely. He was ready to hit the roster in LA.

I know everyone is still shocked but lets hear what Homer says in about 5 minutes.

They sold the farm for Bryz

richards should never have been dealt to anyone
he is or should have been a 'lifer' with the flyers
means we are still stuck with ******* Versteeg
this bites
i know they needed a goalie
but, perhaps they should have NOT sold out on richards
very sad day indeed

Richards was ' their franchise player ' supposedly
WOW

holmgren really needs to visit spain , and get thrown in front of the bulls, because
he just tossed us in front of some really pathetic bull today

Quick question: Would you have preferred the Leaf's package of Kulemin + Kadri or LA's of Schenn + Simmonds?

Giroux and Laperriere just spoke on the phone on RDS. Giroux basically said that it will give a chance for others to step up and that it is a new beginning for the team. Ian Laperriere said that he thought that the Flyers are a better team now that those trades are completed.

Understandable. Just trying to lessen the blow somewhat, even though it probably will need some time. Today has been a crazy day for you guys, I feel your pain.

Does this make Bob expendable? Would you trade him and re-sign Boucher or some other cheap backup option now that we clearly have our franchise goalie?
