i agree , we ar ein much better hands with holmgren than clarke. lets hope he makes a big trade ! lets go flyers!!!! bbThey Waived Cote and Syvret, if they LTIR Emery that gives them 1.8mil to spend on a prorated salary if they want a rental. They do have some prospects Nodl, Maroon, Bodrov. Plus they could use a roster player in a deal, (IE Coburn, Parant)
There are moves to be made if your creative and Holmgren has shown to be creative. Not like Clarke left him much wiggle room to start with...
Parent and Coburn.Flyers are looking at Dan Hamhuis, a D-man from Nashville.
Maybe for Parent.:huh:
Guess we will have to agree to disagree on some of these...Gagne isnt worth keeping. He is injury prone. And if he is such a great two way player why is he a -4? He has 7 G and 19 A hardly worth 5 million a season! His contract is not cap friendly. Clarke had no clue how to structure a contract for a better cap hit.
Carter is way overrated! His shooting percentage is only 10%. Your sniper shouldnt have a shooting percentage of 10%. So your happy with Carter taking 1/3 of your teams 30 or so shots on goal in a game and maybe getting one goal? He also misses wide many times and it creates odd man rushes against us. I am not saying move him for someone washed up but if you can get good value for him its worth it. Oh and JVR is tied with Carter for the lead in GWG's. In the end Carter is good value for 5 million per year.
Giroux has tons of potential but he needs to get stronger as does JVR. I think JVR will end up being the better player in the end. People like players who can wow them but you need to make the simple passes to put the puck in the net. Giroux has great vision that is a god given talent but if he doesnt bulk up player will just knock him over or take the puck from him time and time again.
lol if thats what it takes, Giroux had a 3 point night as well, looks like some rest did these guys some good. I think Richards forgot the olympics is over and was playing lights out hockey...Mako Man maybe I should rip Gagne everyday and he will play like he is tonight?
