    Default WTF is Homer Doing-Streit 4yrs/$5.25M Vinne 5yrs Bryzgalov/Briere Bought Out

    Flyers acquire D Streit from Islanders for Harper, pick

    35 year old defenseman expected to want in the neighborhood of $5M.

    You have to think that this means that Bryzgalov and Briere are getting bought out.

    It also means that Homer is even more of an idiot than I thought. Streit is NOT going to make them any better than they were before. He's not a defensive stallwart. He's better at it than Timmonen, but come on.

    He should be fired immediately, and in doing so I would bring Clarke back in to be the GM because he's played on and built a team that will be successful in this league right now.
    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.

    don't forget the injury concerns. I hope they keep Homer, though. I don't want them to steal Hextall

    If he is fired the first person they will call is Hextall.

    I don't have the link but earlier in the week (or last week) McKenzie said something along the lines of "expect philly to buy out Bryz"

    With them bringing in another D, I expect them to try to trade one that they have now. I could see Meszaros ( 1 yr 4 mil) or Grossman (3 yrs 3.5 mil) especially with Streit wanting 4-5 mil for 4 yrs

    Bob McKenzie ‏@TSNBobMcKenzie 1h
    Sorry, meant to say $4M to $5M range that Streit will be looking for. He was making $4.1M per year on his expiring contract.

    Seems that a 35 yr old defenseman, with declining numbers, who also doesn't play defense, should not be expecting a raise

    but he did captain a team that made the playoffs for like only the 6th time in 20-years, and haven't even made it out of the first round since then.

    he was also probably their best player in the post-season behind just behind Tavares.

    it isn't a bad idea, but i heard or read somewhere about a 4-year deal. i thought WHY would you give a 35+ plus player 4 years? then i remembered... Homer.

    I would gladly take Meszaros off their hands if they're willing to go halfers on his salary/cap hit. He'd make for an interesting partner with Greene.

    I mean, look at the mess that transpired in New York. They signed Drury, Gomez, and Redden, and that didn't work. They clean that up and sign Gaborik, and the best thing that came out of that deal were the pieces they got back from the Jackets. Now Brad Richards is being scratched 2 years into his monster contract.

    The Flyers have had their own messes, which they are about to clean up by buying some people out, but they need to get better by dealing for defense and goaltending instead of writing massive checks. You don't need 3 lines of offense to win, you need 2 and a pair of defensemen that can shut down the opposition.
