There is absolutely no reason to consider buying out Filppula this offseason. If you must exercise a buyout, you buyout MacDonald, because you will almost have to at some point before his contract expires anyway. Filppula is one more year. You can play him for that long. Tampa would have needed to buy him out not because of the NMC, but because they would have serious issues re-signing their young players this offseason. I'd say it's lazy reporting, but it's Seravelli,, which is synonymous.

I mentioned this to Rux in the shoutbox, but I think it has relevance here so I will repeat:   Valteri Filppula is still a pretty good player. He isn't a lock down 2C anymore like he was when TB first got him, but he can still play the position if needed, he will play 3C as well, and he has even adapted to playing wing on any line, including the 1st, too.   Now, his strengths may NOT necessarily match up with what the Flyers need, however. They are superb passing sk

better for this year ?  better for the long term ? Mark Streit's salary is off the books MDZ's salary is off the books, Mason, Neuvirth, Shultz and Gordon. If they do nothing and gain all that salary cap space...  i think they are/can be better. If a deal isn't awesome why make it ? I understand trying to an asset for those guys, but getting rid of those guys is also an asset of sorts too. Alas CBJ isn't going to trade us Brendan Saad for Andrew MacDonald...this is the s

Imagine how I felt seeing where I succumbed to the concept that he might be worth 4 years, $16M :)

 

If nothing else, that would have meant he was done after next season, instead of 2020.

 I would be outright shocked if there was even 5 guys faster than McDavid in the NHL, hell probably the whole world, His vision and ability to do certain things at a great speed make him special, but the foundation of his game is outright, pure blazing speed.

 

 The last time I remember seeing an OHL player as fast as McDavid was Paul Coffey with the Kitchener Rangers. When I saw Erie play London, Marner was out with an injury, and I was really hoping to see both of them live at a game, cause Marner is in and around McDavid's top speed.

Even faster than Chuck Norris? :nonono:

I have said many, many, many, many, many, many times I will never understand not simply "re-loading that gun."

 

Made no sense at all. Still doesn't.

 

The Weber offer sheet was an egregious failure on every level. The pursuit of Parise/Suter was another one. Then you have Bryzgalov. And MacDonald.

 

But, hey, the Flyers "won the trades" #amirite?

And then on top of ALL that, because they were busy with the above, no one bothered to call Jagr and he left for a deal elsewhere.

Well, let's not get carried away. Chuck would simply need to bend the time continuum to suit his needs. He would have the option of being faster, or just slowing everyone else down.
