I know they have a lot of priorities other than that (*cough* Parise *cough*), but they only have $22 million committed to next season (granted they don't really have anything close to a team either but, whatever :lol )

I think they more likely scenario is keeping Luongo and trading Schneider's negotiating rights for a draft pick considering Luongo's NTC and cap hit/contract length, but now that Schneider is getting starts in the playoffs (and won a game), who knows.

The winning games thing is what got me. Even if they lose the series what if he gets it to 6 or 7 games? Hard to sell that to your fan base if you trade him. Had they been swept and even if he played well it's not as much of thing I don't think.

Yeah...but there's only so much you can do? I mean, they are losing 6 forwards and 3 defenseman, as well as their backup goaltender, and they still only have $9 million in cap space (again, assuming the cap doesn't move). If the cap goes down, they are even more screwed.

Of those 10 contracts that expire, 6 are near the minimum (between $525,000-$700,000). They are going to have a hard enough time fielding players to be able to dress a team, let alone be able to take on a new contract in exchange for Luongo.

Trading Luongo for them, at this point, they couldn't get anywhere near fair value. No where near. It'd have to be draft picks, and a lot of them. What team wants to do that? Vancouver can't afford to take on a decent players contract, and no team is going to sell their future in draft picks to take on a notorious head case and his ridiculous contract. I just don't see it happening the more I look at it.

I don't know what they are doing over there, but certainly they aren't thinking about their future. Every game Schneider starts makes it harder and harder to trade Luongo, but at the same time makes it seem like they need to trade him more. Maybe they are selling Schneider's stock, I don't know. But the more I look at it, the less likely it seems Luongo gets moved.

Why do people think Flyers fans are rattled? A 3-1 series lead is nothing to be concerned about yet.

If I were a Rangers fan, I'd be rattled. :lol

I think the Flyers will still take the series, but you can't say that your $7 million goalie getting lit up once again isn't a major cause for concern. Especially considering his post season struggles in the past.

Flyers fans have no reason to be rattled currently. But get in to Round 2 against a team that can actually play defense and tend the goal, there will be some serious rattling noises coming out of Philly. Bryzgalov's craptacular play is overshadowed only by Fleury's even more craptacular play.

Agree that Rangers fans should be rattled.

what has me :rattle is that we let them back in to the game. i'm not confident in this team in OT. i think we've lost our last 7 OT games.

Rangers are the better team. Flyers are not. That's the difference.

Rinaldo needs a suspension for the bullshit he pulled last night. A kinda/sorta boarding, followed by the elbow to the back of the head, followed by a cross-check and a punch to the face. He got his moneys worth, but he needs to miss a couple of games.

I don't think Rinaldo should be suspended.

And it only gets worse from there. Good luck with putting Bryz up against, say, Thomas, Lundquist, or Quick.

They should just start making golf reservations now.

I doubt Leighton is starting tomorrow. But I wouldn't be shocked if he's the back up over Bob, who just can't handle playoff hockey.

Except for last night, Bob has had success against Pittsburgh. And last night he was kind of put in front of a tsunami. I wouldn't be surprised to see him start Friday.

Playoffs are a different animal. Anything before that doesn't really matter. Bob is shaky in the playoffs.

I've said it before but I always think back to Roenick not signing with the Wings in 01 because he felt Philly had strong goaltending. lol Not only were Flyers on their 6th starting goalie in 5 years at the time, just a few days later the Wings traded for Hasek.
