    I think Holmgren has been skipping his 12 step meetings. The Flyers continue to spend like drunken sailors and never seem to address their core issue(defense). They always go forward heavy...and goalie. It's like some cheesesteak cloud fogs the back end of the ice. The Pens too. All that money tied up in a few players. They trade away grit/grinders(Pigface Kennedy) and think they can use low rent talent to fill the holes. Doesn't Pittsburgh have goalie issues? Poor Scuderi is gonna be asked to do a lot by hisself. Shocking that the Rangers didn't do the usual shenanigans on fa day. Guess they have cap issues...go figger.

    The Rangers didn't go the bail-out route by keeping Brad Richards so that kept them safe another year. With the Failyers, when you all of a sudden get cap space back (Bryz, Briere) you tend to do the same stupid things over again. It's kinda like giving a teenager a credit card.

    Actually really well stated. Like the (apologies to Mitchy) 'give a monkey a gun' theory...silly Failyers.

    I just don't see a combo of Emery/Mason being anything other than decent with the likelihood of going full retard pretty high. Looks like Bryz broke their new-found spirit of paying top dollar for goalies.

    Its only going to get worse. Rumor is that they have a verbal agreement with Gagne on an extension, but they have to clear up the cap issue before they can sign it. I think its safe to say that he's going to trade somebody else, and I bet its a defenseman.

    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.

    Getting Emery is stupid if you base it on the fact that the Flyers are relying on him and Mason to save their D's bacon every night.

    Does it count if they traded him already? A quick look at their pick history (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_o...rs_draft_picks) shows:

    2008: Luca Sbisa
    2002: Joni Pitkanen
    2001: Dennis Deidenberg

    As the only recognizable NHL names at D or G since 2001.

    Ouch.
