What about Casey Cizikas for a bottom 6 role?

 

Kick the tires.

 

I mean, I'm okay if it's not more than he's making now, but are you playing him at center?   If so, are you moving Laughton to wing and moving Frost up or are we just blocking Frost again?   I'm not happy with Frost on the fourth line--I think it's dumb--so not challenging here just wondering what the thought is.

Bernier was the guy I wanted them to sign a few years back. I've always liked him. 

Read the Wild board on here about Suter being bought it...it's pretty much "good riddance" all the way around. I never really liked him when he was good. And now he's not. 

Tampa won back to back with defence, toughness and special teams, not pretty. Did you see anyone ever take liberties with their goalie? Part of Carter Harts decline was playing deeper in his crease because of the softness of the 5 guys in front of him. Shift after shift.

I'd love that, I think, he can skate and hit and is good on draws. 

Do you think the Prince of Lies will let him walk?

 

I also think he'll  be too beaucoup for boom-boom.

 

Well they have RFAs Sorokin, Dal Colle, Beauvillier and Pelech to resign.

 

And UFAs Palmieri , Zajac and Cizikas and 17.6 mill to do all of that.

 

So I will go out on a limb and say no they won't resign him.

I prefer him at center on the 4th maybe and kick Laughton out to wing if possible I want to give Morgan every chance to win the 3rd line center spot because if he looks good there I want to bump him up and Hayes to the 3rd.

 

However the results and injuries during season can change all that.

Big Sam is in at 750k, just announced.

 

What better endorsement...

 

That is something I really like about big Sam. He's not just a guy who plays for the Flyers.
 
He IS a Flyer, damn proud of it.
 
Wears heart on his sleeve.
 
Wish there were more players nowadays like that. I think Atkinson will be another.

Cizikas will stay with the isles, they dont want to break up the 4th line,im guessing he will sign for 3.5 a year.

yeah, i don't think the Flyers have that kind of $ for what would be maybe a luxury ?

There are RFA's that will require decent deals that will take up a majority of the cap space that's left. 

The free agent money is going to be directed towards a quality back-up goalie and I think that price is going to plenty steep. 

So after that business is attended to, there's not much left for a 5th centerman, even though he's a good one.

So how do you sign the rest of your free agents?

 

That leaves you guys 14.1 mill to sign:

 

RFAs Sorokin, Dal Colle, Beauvillier and Pelech?

My gut just tells me the Flyers will eventually sign Jason Demers for a depth defenseman role.

 

I've seen Chuckles just mention his name too much as well as him being mentioned in trade rumors for the last year and a half.

 

So expect it to be announced before camp begins...they need another right hand shot for the blueline.

 

As of now they only have Risto and Braun.

 

So I am just preparing everyone...

Are we concluding York will have a spot? I see Braun and Morin battling for the 6th spot. So who is out if Demers comes in?

 

Demers would be more likely a depth signing no more.

 

Maybe a deal you can bury if York is ready.

 

Plus a guy you wouldn't be worried would get snagged on waivers.

 

And no York shouldn't be gifted a spot.

 

He'll have to earn it. Plus it could give you the option too if Braun sucks.

 

Demers is a better skater than him I know.

 

But it will get sorted out. And then you have injures in camp and preseason that always happens.

Reports are Fletcher being interested in Darcy Kuemper as BUG for Hart if Arizona is willing to retain some of his salary. Chuck drafted him back in Minnesota so you know he’s probably got a partial chubby from the possibility

Let me rephrase the question, 

 

 

In your opinion, do you think York will be a regular out of camp

If he plays like he did last year at the end of the season - yes.

 

Some may not like it but he impressed me more than Travis Sanheim ever has.

 

In fact he will be the guy pushing for top 4 minutes and forcing Sanheim out the door.

 

But to start the season  I can see York and Braun as the bottom pair.

 

If I am Sam Morin I am practicing as much as I can on the right side so he could push Braun out the lineup.

 

He is already faster than him all he has to learn to do is keep it simple and play sound defense and he has a shot. Because I am not a huge Braun fan.

WOOOO HOOOO!!!!

 

The Cup is ours!!!!!!

 

Flyers will sign veteran Taylor Fedun tomorrow to play for Lehigh Valley and serve as a depth option for NHL in-case of injuries. He spent most of last season on the Dallas Stars' taxi squad. He'd take over the Nate Prosser vet RH depth role.
