    Default Flyers Upper Management Shakeup

    Luukko resigns from Flyers, Comcast-Spectacor | Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia

    I think its going to get worse there, and frankly I would not be totally shocked if they came into the deadline and totally blew it up. I mean REALLY blew it up. Traded away everything not bolted down, and totally started over.

    That's even if they COULD trade away some of their players.
    at the draft party a couple of years ago, and under a considerable haze, i heard Birdman yell out the following (about 4 or 5 times, i think) - "don't marry yourselves to players!" he went on to reiterate that idea more than once on the boards, and i believe it to be absolutely sage.

    The vets, yeah, maybe.

    Why would they trade any of their youngsters not making big bucks, though?

    I'm curious as to why you think they'll be a seller at this point - they are tied for 8th in the Conference. In the East, it's not going to take a lot to knock team or two off, and the Flyers are only where they are because of that amazingly atrocious start.

    I'm not sure they have to panic just quite yet, even with the cap issues. Judging by what this new Canada TV deal could bring the NHL, it's possible that the NHL salary cap could be over $20 million high in five years - ****, the floor will probably be close to $60 million. There's going to be a market for overpaid people just so the Predators can meet the floor.
