dont think I posted my ideal roster yet, I'll go
[I'd try to accomplish any 2 of the following moves]
-First, find a way to put Bob in the AHL, if you cannot, then loan him to Europe to play (which also takes his salary off the books). He needs 60 games a season. He will be a terrific goaltender when he's 28, I just hope we have him then.
-Sign Al Montoya (UFA) to backup Bryz.
-Go for the NYI double and get P-A Parenteau (UFA) (or at least a player of his type/salary)
-Dump Hartnell or Briere salary, after asking them very politely to waive their NMC. Just like Gagne and Kubina did.
-Pursue Sutter. If unsuccessful, find someone else. Maybe Jack Johnson doesn't like the weather in Ohio, maybe a trade for him involving Hartnell or Briere. Two birds with one stone there.
-If there is somehow money left, look at Luke Schenn
- Stop interfering with their development. top 3 centers should be Giroux - Schenn - Couturier
JVR - G - Simmonds
Briere/Hartnell - Schenn - Voracek
Read - Couts - Parenteau
Wellwood - Talbot - Sestito/Rinaldo
Coburn - Grossmann
Timonen - Sutter/Johnson
Mez - Gus/Schenn

First thing we need to do is hid Giroux from Homer. ...just to be safe.
Is there any chance that if we do stuff bob in the AHL one way or another that we can sign back leighton for low money to back up bryz next season? It would be nice to have a backup with playoff experience
Bob would have to clear waivers which isn't likely
Let Jagr go.
TRADE JVR FOR ANYTHING TO FREE CAP SPACE
Do not sign Suter (not worth the 6 million he will need)
Trade Hartnell (anyone can score 30 goals with G passing the puck to them) while his value is very high
Zach Parise is my target
Any chance homer finds a way to bring in Parise?
more than anything, the Flyers need to find a way to get some RH defensemen. i'm not sure why they have fallen in love with lefties, but aside from Kubina and Manning, literally EVERY defensemen they have either on the roster or in the AHL is LH.
Tocchet brought up an interesting point on DNL today; he said the devils made it a point to dump to the left side of the ice, forcing the lefty defensemen to go into the corners on their back-hand. the Rangers had that same tactic. this is one reason why their forechecks were so effective against the Flyers.
they need to get some RH defensemen in here.
Cap hit is 4.2, you cannot move him, I would consider moving JVR and briere and that's it
