    Wang's no saint either. There's the Yashin buy out, which they're still spewing cap space for, not to mention the yet to be resolved DiPietro saga.

    Of anyone that Bettman needs to get out as an owner of a once proud franchise, its that dude.

    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.

    This is a comically bad signing. Somehow the Flyers just got older and have even less cap space than they did before, which is to say none at all. They literally can't sign him until they clear additional cap space.

    I love it. Can't wait to see Holmgren scramble to sign more defensemen with no cap space this offseason.

    And that's by writing a check to Bryzgalov to the tune of $23M.

    If you cost your boss $23M because of a mistake like this, I would think that you'd be fired.

    OK, so here's the comedy in this. They're currently $7.8M OVER the cap with Streit's contract calculated in..

    They buyout Bryzgalov and Briere, they're now under by $4.3M.

    That's with 13 forwards, 9 defense, and 1 goaltender under contract. I don't get how the Pronger LTIR part of it works, but holy **** they are still an absolute mess.

    Looking at it more gets me to thinking that Bernier is going there for about half of that $4M.

    I agree. Just glad the Isles did something smart for a change. Let me enjoy the moment.

    And now he wants to trade his best stay at home defenseman for a forward?

    https://twitter.com/tpanotchCSN
    2 NHL sources tell CSN Flyers & ANA talking of Bobby Ryan. Among scenarios being discussed: Coburn, 11th pick for Ryan... more later

    He's also NOT going to buy out Bryzgalov??

    Rich Winter, Ilya Bryzgalov's agent has been informed by Paul Holmgren that Bryzgalov will NOT be bought out after Cup Final!
