False choice. I can in fact have neither.

But if forced to choose between the two, Jagr, naturally. I don't know how he fits in with Laviolette style hockey.

Just wondering and want to confirm, the Flyers did send their own people to Toronto to meet with Brad Richards right? Because the Rangers did not. Now we get this:

RT @TSNBobMcKenzie: @NYP_Brooksie Me thinks NYR in a little scramble mode after other organizations went to Toronto for the dog and pony show with Richards.


That's just the Rangers being the Rangers. "We're New York, and we'll get him." Someone forgot to tell like 10 other teams.

Probably Jagr for the one year. I'd be willing to bet that Jagr will perform similarly to Cole or Leino. Maybe not better or even as good, but its noy going to be like Cole and Leino are going to score 80 points and Jagr will have 20 (barring any injuries of course). Leino at $4.5 is ridiculous. I love Leino, but that is just outrageous. Cole at $4.5 million for four is also pretty ridic. Jagr at $3.3 is an overpayment as well, but its only for a year.

No they did not. Most of the teams didn't. Yzerman went up, the LAK brass went up, and Toronto sans Burke went up.

I do remember them talking about lots of others just calling him. Maybe they rigged the phone with some mind control gas or something.

Sarah Baicker was on WIP last night and was saying that Brad Richards would give the Flyers some size down the middle and some defensive help.

Well, that means one of three things IMO:

A. It Involves Giroux and/or JVR (please god, no)
B. It Involves Bryzgalov (didn't anyone else find it fishy there's no NTC in his new contract?!?)
C. She has nothing and is just trying to get attention

Paul Holmgren is the boldest man in the NHL.

I like this new found crazy mad scientist thing he has going on right now. The novelty will wear off quickly if this team is horse **** when they hit the ice, but hot damn he keeps supplying the thrills.

C would be out of character as far as I can tell.

B would be absolutely stupid, given the mountains moved to get him. And the no trade clause makes perfect sense given the term and dollars he got (I was on record saying if Homer was flexible on term and hit, then he needed to be a rock on not giving any kind of NTC).

A would suck. But maybe it's big because we can get Stammer. If we could do that with out giving up JVR or Giroux, then go for it. Everyone else should be available. I have a feeling we couldn't get Stamkos with out giving up one of those two or maybe both of Schenn and Couturier, which again would be fine with me.
