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.

Nope. Still roughly 1.4mil over the cap according to capgeek.com.

The Flyers are so boned. If they don't buy out Bryz, what else can they do? Thought after this year Timmo is off the books

Timonen should have been off the books after this just completed season. That extension was insane.

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Its insane but its what to be expected of the Flyers now. They freak out way to easy and rush into dumb contractual decisions. I am beginning to think the only fix will come at the expense of Holmgren being shipped out of town, because Snyder is not going anywhere

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.

Buh-bye Danny, you were the man. I'll miss you.

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
I'd be all for the Leafs signing him for a couple of years. He's a quality pass-first centre who could mentor some of the young talent for the Leafs. (all of this assuming that Bozak does not move down from him demands)

Texted a friend that's a Flyers fan.

Me: "Briere officially bought out. How do you feel?"
Him: "Pretty good. Hopefully they don't use that cap space to sign an aging defenseman to a 4 year contract or something crazy hahahahaha"
Him: "...................................."

Briere said this is his home now so I have no doubt in my mind he will have a job in the org after he retires

If only the NHL allowed to restructure deals, but then teams like Philadelphia would not get punished as badly for their dumb signings

Re: The NHL 2013-14 Thread
 
Sounding like Glendale isn't too happy with the proposed lease agreement. Kypreos saying the team will stay in Glendale for another year but other reports are saying they could still very well move. 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.

This is obviously very trivial when compared to 100's if not 1000's of people who have lots, or incurred significant damage to their homes, and businesses. BUT it is a hockey thread so...

My company's headquarters are based out of Calgary, and none of them even came in to work today. Guys were leaving in droves yesterday to sandbag their homes. The city is completely under water right now. You safe where you are, swordo?

Big time, I'm in Ontario....close to "Leafs Land" *shudders*

Thank you for your concern all the same. Sounds like things should improve in Calgary etc. over the weekend. Amazingly there have been no reported injuries or deaths because of the floods.

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.
