Just my opinion =P

    Anyway, those are all fair points. Someone will give Matt Carle 5+/yr, I just hope it isn't us, lol. I think we're better served trading JVR for Schenn (and a pick) and resigning Voracek/Jagr (assuming Prongs is coming back, which is far from certain at this point), or getting Suter and going from there. I'm pretty sure moving JVR's 4+ million and potentially placing Prongs on LTIR again next year should free up a little over $11 million in cap space.

    Is that how it works?
    Somewhat. You cannot place a player on LiTR until the first game of the season. But teams must be cap compliant prior to the first game of the season. This means you can't just sign Suter or someone, expecting to LiTR Pronger and be okay. Which means that money can be used for an in-season trade, but not for an offseason signing.

    What I think happens? We amnesty Pronger if under the new CBA the provision is in place.

    I understand this and respect this 100% but at the same time like I said it's more then just one game and there has to be a snowball in order for the snowball affect to take place....or a lead dominio. Just saying...

    And for sake a "discussion forum" your one game = an entire career. Tell the to Leighton.......

I'm hardly surprised to read this though, Carle is this year's Jeff Carter. It's like everyone is just looking for flaws in Carle's play rather than watching the actual games.



    I'm not saying he was good, but who played well last night? No one on Philadelphia's roster.
    Again im pretty sure I said that in my own original post. Though how many time and how many games can you say "wow really...wtf why would u do that"

    About as many as people fail to say "hey that was a really nice play Carle!"

    Eh, carle's not so bad. There are a lot of worse d-men then him. Sometimes we Flyers fans have unrealistic expectations.

    ...And did you see that Giroux goal?

    Ah, thank you for the clarification.

    I'm gonna miss Prongs when he goes, whenever that is.

    Flyers - Phillies - Eagles - 76ers

    ...did anyone bring pizza?

    I like Matt Carle. At $5m? Maybe not so much. But I'm with TR. He's not a scrub. And to blame him for last night is a joke. There's 22 guys on the bench who you can blame singling out any and you're just looking for a scapegoat.
    Not sure who this was directed at. If at me, I'm not sure why. I didn't make him a scapegoat for any game. Just wanted to clear that up.

    yeah sry to rant on about it. I really havent hated on any other Flyer besides Car Bombs and Carle. thats it and im sorry guys but I really will be glad when he signs elsewhere.

    Carbombs still goes down as one of the dumbest trades in the Homer era in my opinion.

    What do you mean?....Other than expecting them to go 82-0 I don't think Flyers fans are unrealistic

    not so fast. had Homer not traded away upshall for carcillo, he would not have had the cap space to bring up Claude Giroux from the phantoms. i think you've heard of him; he was 3rd in the NHL in scoring this year.


    the trade had deeper implications than the actual swap of players.

He makes bonehead mistakes like Shane Victorino for the Phils with half the talent. He's a solid passer, but I truly think this team needs that shutdown guy to put in front of Bryz. I think Suter can be that guy, but I suppose we'd have to see him on his own to know.

    If the choice is Jagr AND Voracek vs. Suter, personally I'm going with Suter. I think you can put Schenn on that first line in Jagr's place. He has shown his shot is good enough to finish plays when Giroux makes them, and though he's not as big as Jagr, he's shown how physical and strong he is. I love what Jagr has done this year, but I truly believe Schenn would be an absolute stud if Giroux was dishing to him for a full year.

    JVR coming back would be a lift for the team, and I personally still think he's more talented and has higher upside than Voracek (I know they play different positions).

    I see our top-3 lines like this next year:

    Schenn - Giroux - Hartnell
    Simmonds - Briere - Read
    Wellwood - Couturier - JVR (I know JVR is a center, but with his size, we could move him to the wing and he'd be a wonderful power forward)

    D:

    Pronger - Suter
    Timonen - Grossman
    Coburn - Gus / Lilja / Coburn

    (if Prongs retires, we can retain Voracek, so plan accordingly)

    Actually... On second thought, we're stacked at center again. Danny is unmovable, and Voracek has been so valuable. The chemistry on these lines has been wonderful... Maybe we SHOULD move JVR for Luke Schenn and keep the roster intact. Ah, decisions!
    JVR has NEVER ONCE took a shift at center bro. Don't know what the hell youve been watching. My best advice for you is either quit trying to play GM casual hockey fan, or plan 2, go ask the wizard for some brains.

    Trade was bad no way you slice it. He had to make the move because we had no wiggle room with the cap, but it was still a bad trade.
