Flyers might get in on Brad Richards talks now.
...good let them give him a 7 year, $49 million contract to go along with Bryzgalov's albatross contract.
Updated, 4:52 p.m.:
Flyers sign Bryzgalov to 9 year, $51 million contract.
...nine years? That's DiPietro territory.
TSN reports that Jeff Carter has been traded from the Philadelphia Flyers to the Columbus Blue Jackets exchange for Jakub Voracek, plus first and third round draft picks.
Then just minutes later the Flyers also traded captain Mike Richards to the Kings for Brayden Schenn and Wayne Simmonds.
These moves are obviously done to open up cap room for G Ilya Bryzgalov whose rights the Flyers acquired last week. Bryzgalov is reportedly looking for a 7 year $50 million deal.
...i know that Tim Thomas proved how important goaltending is to the success of a team and the Flyers situation in between the pipes has been a mess since Ron Hextal but Bryzgalov is no Thomas. Did you see him in the first round this year?
...wonder if Dubinsky is sad that he'll only get to pound on Richards once a year now.
