Landing Shane Doan Would Be Outstanding, But Not At That Price

So once again, this is a matter of the almighty dollar. Would I love to see Shane Doan in the Orange & Black? Without question. His tenacious carnality is what feeds Flyers fans. But from a practical standpoint, that asking price pushes me completely out of contention.

The Bossest Boss Behind the Bench; O&BP's Top 5 Coaches in Flyers History

With Laviolette's upcoming extension, I thought I'd give everyone my list of Top 5 Coaches in Flyers history. I guess I was given the assignment because I'm the most wisest of the group, or most knowledgeable? No, it's because I'm the oldest.

Am I the Only Flyers Fan Who Isn't Pissy Over Crosby's Hacks on Giroux's Wrists?

Giroux made it that much sweeter when he bulldozed the little Queen on the opening faceoff of Game 6. Claude took this League's golden boy and put him through the ice. If a dog's gonna bite, you bite back.

Czech That Bank Account, Voracek! Jake Gets Paid, 4yrs/$17M

With this sort of pay raise, there's no question the Flyers have the intention on sticking Voracek with Giroux in that vanguard combination. And to tell ya the truth, the thought of a Hartnell/Giroux/Voracek line gives me goosebumps.

So, What Now? | Flyers Eyes SHOULD Turn Internally

All I'm asking is for Flyers fans to step away from the ledge. Don't jump! We're not in any sort of defensive trouble. We missed out on the League's top blue liner, but I firmly believe our panicking has led some of us to undervaluing what we already have.

Rick Nash to NYR Subtracts Some Leverage from Philadelphia in the Weber Offer

Just as Holmgren screwed the Penguins and Rangers out of a possible deal for Weber, Blueshirts GM Glen Sather just dropped a rattle snake in our negotiations with Nashville.

"CarBomb" Carcillo Needs Our Attention; Tells Us He Has "ZERO" Respect for Lavy

And once Carcillo's barely skating off the frozen pond under his own will, nursing a damaged kidney that'll contribute to his pissing blood for the next week, I hope it's Laviolette who takes a second from chewing his bubble gum, leans over the bench and says, "You're f--king irrelevant."

David Poile Hesitates & Shea's Agent Tells Us Weber WANTS To Play in Philadelphia

Because Shea would be earning so much money in salary bonuses earlier on in his front-loaded contract, it's believed to be almost impossible (or should I say financially irresponsible) for the Nashville Predators to match Flyers GM Paul Holmgren's offer.

Shea friggin' Weber Signs Offer Sheet with Philadelphia worth 14yrs/$100M+

This could actually turnout to be quite the deal for Nashville. I'm sure they'll hesitate and think when they're staring at that FOURTEEN year agreement. They may think letting Weber walk for four of our 1st Round Draft picks is more than worth one existing player, age 26 (turns 27 in August).
