    I thought the Lecavalier signing was a decent move by the Flyers. There is some age risk for the last year or two but 4.5 mil for a second line center is close to the going rate. Ribeiro was asking for a similar contract in DC. If the UFA centers available, Vinny was the best and signed for a reasonable cost and marginal term.

    Of all bonehead moves in Philly, I don't see this one being bad. The only downside is they wasted precious cap space on a guy who's a forward not a goalie or defenseman.

    $4.5M for a 50 point, 33 year old center who hasn't had a positive +/- in the last 6 seasons playing on a team with Stamkos, Purcell, and St. Louis.

    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.

    Homer's gonna give Giroux north of $8M per season for 8 years.

    Flyers and Giroux close to eight-year contract extension

    They are going to drop their cap space next season to $12M (Not including Pronger LTIR, call it $16M or so) with only 13 Only contract not including Pronger.

    I want to learn how he does accounting.

    No...they just applied what little cap space they had to the wrong position. I fully expect HoLOLgren to sign a 1st basemen any day now.

    Typical though. The first reasonable contract they sign is only for one year. At least next year they can sign him to a six year five per deal like normal.
