Hate the Streit deal. Definitely one to two years too long and at too much. Yes, I realize that's what he would have gotten in FA. The point is though the Flyers are in cap hell and have a terrible D core. And an owner and GM hell bent on never rebuilding. Hence all these terrible long term contracts.

The Flyers and Phillies for that matter both need to step back, clean house, on and off the playing surfaces and take some time to rebuild.

The move would have been to keep the 4th round pick, and not acquire Streit in the first place, and still make the buyouts they were planning on.

And please check out hockeysfuture.com, or any other prospect ranking site...Flyers are bottom 3 in all of them (most have them as dead last).

I'm not saying they have a good farm system (it's awful), but they do have some prospects.

He knew he could get 4-5 years. A lot of people didn't think it was possible with the cap going down. I said...don't underestimate a desperate NHL GM.

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Looks like the Leafs are taking a hard stance on Bozak. He wants somewhere between 5.0 and 5.5 (rumoured). This is way to much money. Grabovski got a ridiculous contract at 5.5. Way to much money. I would happily take Bozak back at 3.5 to 4.25. He ate the most minutes as a forward last year, was our best faceoff guy but was not a true number one center. He only got those minutes by default. Defaulting into minutes does not get you a huge contract. \


In saying all of that, I do like Bozak. I feel like he's a good #2 center and one of the best #3 center men in the NHL. He is great friends with Kessel and if Kadri can keep on improving I could see him and Lupul (assuming he stays healthy) playing first line minutes every night which would given Kessel and Bozak a better opportunity to put up quality numbers.

kev87lads 06-18-2013 04:08 PM

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Flyers will sign Bernier to a 6-year $30+M deal. Then buy him out next season with their special extra compliance buyout given to them by the NHL. Given only to special organizations that can't handle their cap.

Edit: They'll also trade Read and a #2 to get his rights!

I don't know if they see Reimer as a true number one. He had a good season but they played well in front of him. I don't think they should be moving quality assets to get him when they are in clear need of filling other holes.

The only way I see it happening is if It's a reimer for Bernier swap.

In saying that, I don't really see that happening at all.

I want something crazy to happen Like Phaneuf and Gardiner for Weber. They can't keep paying him that contract. Those two players make a difference in your D. Phaneuf is a top 2 d-man on most any roster and Gardiner, as shown when put into the Boston series, is an absolute difference maker on the ice.

I totally recognize that's a pipe dream and will never happen, but a guy can dream, right?

It's interesting to be here and listen to Dustin talking about his (hopefully) upcoming contract. It's been a cool thing to observe. Also tonight I noticed he had a little bit of a beard going on and asked if he was growing it out and he said no, he was shaving it later. I told him to make a "contract 'stash" until he signs a new deal. He did and a little while later Nicole noticed and did not approve. We were crackig up. I hope he keeps it though. :lol:lol

That's not actually what the first quote said. It said Homer didn't blame Bryz for the year the team had. I'm not sure if Winter thought that meant he wasn't getting bought out. Homer then came back and said he made no promises to Winter or Bryz. He's still gone IMO. They need the space.

I'm not a huge fan of that. You need help on D. Thought the Oilers should have taken Murray and they would have had great talent up front and on the blue line. They didn't need Yakupov. If the Avs do that they could be making a mistake.

100%. I still hope they flip Yakupov this summer for a #1 or #2 d-man, or (and I'm dreaming a bit but) maybe Bernier.

I've got no problems with Dubnyk, but I also think they would make a really solid 1a, 1b tandem type setup.

D-man would be preferable for Yakupov, but wouldn't complain with a solid goalie either.

Mckenzie saying that The Leafs are in on Bernier and it looks to be Frattin + Pick. Someone on another board was saying it looks a lot like Bishop's deal which landed Conacher and a 4th.

I'd do Frattin and a third for him. It would create some goalie trouble in the net but whoever manages to push through gets the job and the other gets traded. Both are Viable #1's in my mind. Especially after the Year Reimer had.

Hate to be that guy. But it may be until Snider passes (obv. not wishing that at all) before things change. He keeps bringing in all of his old buddies from Flyers heydays to make decisions and it's just time to give up that gig. Time to get someone from outside the organization to be GM, talent evaluater, cap guy, etc. etc.

But he won't stop this until he's gone.

I don't buy the Kypreos report because like I've said before he reported Suter chose the Wings. Not was leaning towards, chose. Which in my world means he's told them he's signing. He didn't even meet face to face with the Wings until a day or two after he reported that. Anyways...also I'm pretty sure Daly and Bettman said the league WOULD NOT own the team next season.

No kidding. I understand they (Glendale) worry about what happens if the team leaves but maybe one of the companies wanting to manage the arena can get some national acts to come there and with 41 nights free will have the flexibility to schedule them. I was thinking the other day, what if Glendale doesn't cover losses for 2010-11? The sale to Winnipeg was done so the Jets would have been back a year earlier. Would we have the Thrashers in Quebec right now? Atlanta wasn't going to do all that Glendale has done.

Crazy stuff, didn't know it was in the hockey thread.
Apparently downtown is a ghost-town right now. Bunch of people from our Calgary office had to evacuate their houses.
Glad i live in Edmonton today, it's actually sunny here right now.

One of co-workers who works up in Calgary has been down here (in Salt Lake City) all week, and she keeps showing me pics being sent to her. Seems like the whole city is just one big lake. She is supposed to be flying home tonight and has no idea how she'll get home from the airport. Hope any family/friends you have in the area are safe.

Wordpress is so great. Definitely a great site for a new blogger. If you need any help, just shoot me a PM.

Looks like Torts may be in Vancouver. I can't wait to see him make the Sedins cry. :lol

Cool to see Vancouver and the NYR just switched coaches. I'm sure that'll help!

Yeah since both teams have done such a great job of meeting expectations the past few seasons!

Yes, because AV has a great track record of being successful in the playoffs :confused

He said nothing about the playoffs just said they Rangers would be better with AV than the Canucks will be with Torts. He's right I think.

My assumption was just that the success of both of these franchises really is measured by if they do or do not win a Cup. I don't think either will be considered a success if they do anything short of winning a Cup.

Just thought the playoffs part was implied. And I don't think either will be tremendously successful, but if I had to vote on one, I'd pick Torts and the Canucks, as much as it pains me.

Oh, well in that case, you should probably incorporate something about 19!

Is your blog going to be in any way satirical/sarcastic in nature? If so, I would humbly suggest:

"Eh... Not Good Enough"

If not, I really don't see how you can go wrong with Fagirougle.

~Crashintome89~ 06-21-2013 04:44 PM

I was also thinking about "Skate in the Crease" and "Claude Giroux's magical mittens"

Someone called WFAN in NY today and asked about the rangers new coach "Allen Vino".

Classic NY sports talk.

Not as great as Jeremy Jaguar... I had a customer in my liquor store say that two summers ago. Amazing. :lol

I really cannot see Tortorella working very well in Vancouver. This is going to be a trainwreck.

It will be news and opinion with a little snark. Most importantly, just sorting out twitter reports--think Spector's hockey.

I'll also get into Free agency, the draft, and just general history.

My favorite line: "The Flyers have coveted everybody for quite some time, and could be willing to part with anybody in order to acquire everybody."

down in the bottom, there's a link that says: "report: after acquiring everybody, the Flyers decide to buy everyone out." :lol :lol

Yeah, I know. I'm trying to figure out Weebly.

by the way, anyone who wants to help me with general history certainly can. It's not going to be as extensive as hockey reference, but I at least want to make it sleek and easy to find some information.
