What about taking a run at Gusev? Looks like he and Vegas are pretty far apart and Vegas would need to move salary to make things happen. 

 

He's looking for 2 years / $ 4M per. Not a huge commitment, and could be a pretty explosive RW.

 

He's an RFA, so it would cost us something to acquire his rights. 

 

You don't have the money once you allow for the possible bonus payments that around 2.9 mill after signing the remaining guys.

Besides why would they move him....they have the money once they move Clarkson to IR. He is all they have left to sign.

 

I don't think they went out and landed the free agent to only now let him walk the guy has a lot of skill that will more than likely translate to the NHL his speed will not sure if his scoring touch will...Vegas will get him signed.

 

Flyers don't have the money for him once they figure the bonus payments to paid out at the end of the season and can't afford to be fined next year for overages.

I'll leave that up to them to figure out :) I just think that Gusev would be an interesting option if he and Vegas can't work something out - and if the price to acquire him is good.

From what I've read, they are $6M apart ($2M for a one year deal vs $4M per on a 2 year deal that his agent is seeking). That's a pretty significant difference in intention and commitment.

I thought he was a LW anyways....so would you move Lindblom to the right side to accommodate for him??

 

I mean you could always trade them Laughton for him. It would account for the 2 mill Laughton might make.

 

Then you would have a hole on the 4th at center unless you plug it with say Vorobyev for example.

I like what i have seen from the guy he has some very nice speed and a solid shot.

 

I just don't think the Flyers can fit him in without moving some salary back the other way....so who would that be???

 

Unless they can get Provorov signed for around 6 mill and Konecny for about 4 mill they don't have the room.

 

Ivan 6 mill

TK 4 mill

Laughton 1.8 mill

 

All modest numbers above.

 

That is 11.8 mill right there.

 

So they have around 15.6mill once Lyon is sent down but will be equaled by NAK caphit.

 

They have around 3.3mill left which Chuckles will need to set aside for the bonus payout at the end so there is really no cap left to work with unless you trade someone away to make room. Unless my math is off.

I don't really care how they make it work - if they're interested in Gusev, they will make it work.

 

He's listed as shooting R and everything I've seen has mentioned him as a RW, so that would give us depth there. That means none of the prospects makes it on RW, but my guess is that Gusev would quite handily outperform any of them over the next 2 seasons.

 

He's a small player, though... 5'9", 154#.

 

You'd have Voracek, Gusev, TK and Pitlick on RW. 

 

G, JVR, Lindblom, and Raffl along the LW.

 

Coots, Hayes, Patrick, Laughton down the middle.

I have seen him listed as bigger...elite is pretty close with their stats.

 

5-11 181 is what they list. And a LW to but hey maybe he can play either side.

I am going to be one of the guys who will step up and say Hayes is going to pay huge dividends for the Flyers in 2019-20.

 

He will help take some of the burden off Couturier and the top line.

 

He will help with the special teams improvement on both the power play and the PK. :PopcornSmiley2:

 

He is going to help with the 5 on 5 goals as well. Not depending on just the top line will help a lot.

 

So i guess i will put it out there so i too can say see i told ya so come next April. Guess we'll see who is right all the sky is falling folks or us kool aid drinkers.....right??? Bottoms up!!!!!

Isn't there something in between?

 

Like... drinking a little Kool Aid is okay, it'll definitely be fun now, but in 4 years you're likely going to regret it?

 

Hayes is going to be very good for them.  I want to see Patrick and Lindblom excel and as I think I may have states elsewhere, I'm seriously eager to know how Budas got Johnson and Kapanen to sign for 2/3 of their actual street value because Patrick and Lindblom could easily have the kind of year those two had last year and be looking for a big raise.  

 

With them as an example, Fletcher can push back and potentially resign them without having to make any huge moves before he's ready.

You almost have to hope that those guys all have disappointing seasons in order to get them all under contract, because if just one of them breaks out, you're going to have a decision to make.

 

Isn't that a sad state of affairs eh?

 

The scenario you paint is exactly the situation the Jets are in. Look at who they have lost: Trouba, Myers, Tanev. Three key pieces to a team that was this close to winning it all.

If I were them, I'd have tried to move Little and Buffy.  It would be worth taking on salary not to have to lose him.  

 

I can't imagine trading Trouba and keeping a 34 year old Byfuglien.  

 

It's beyond me.  

 

I'm SURE that's a deal they can make happen.  I'd buy Buffy OUT before I'd give up Trouba for a draft pick.

Well, it's not always that easy.

 

Trouba was never going to be a Jet long term cause he didn't want to live here.

 

Whereas, Buff doesn't mind Wpg. The guy is from Minnesota, loves to fish, it's kinda perfect. Plus, he's the spiritual leader of the team. Fans love him.

 

Anyway, this is a Flyers thread. I digress.

We already know, per Charlie O'Connor, that the Flyers and Sanheim were talking long term, then the Flyers moved to a bridge deal in order to keep the cost down because they found themselves low on cap space. While bridging guys is somewhat effective short term, a lot of quality RFAs are pushing for long-term deals coming out of their ELCs, and the guys you think will be part of your core long term are the guys you SHOULD lock up long term. Where would the Flyers be if Hextall had bridged Ghost or Couturier again on a deal that ended this off-season? Eventually, bridging good players bites you.

 

 

Looks like Toronto has resurrected the bridge deal.  I don't know how they did it, but signing Johnson and Kapanen for what they did is a minor miracle and bodes well for Patty and Lindblom and Myers (unless they literally all have amazing break out seasons... which honestly, isn't impossible).  I highly doubt any of them will have Point/Marner/Matthews = "I demand $11 million coming out of my ELC!!" type seasons, but we could see significant production and increased responsibility from all of them as their matchups inevitably get better with the lines/pairing above them all getting better and drawing tougher matchups.

Sure and then he can slide to RW more than likely.

Frost might actually have a higher ceiling than Patrick. If just one of them hits, you now have to pay them what they're worth

 

Sure and that could be a good problem to have i mean you're talking about 2021-22.

 

Giroux and Couturier will also be in the last year of their deals.

 

So there are so many things by then that will be different more than likely but there is no sense in worrying so much about 2021-22 before you even know what 2019-20 or even 2020-21 holds.

 

So much could change before then it too me isn't worth worrying so much about now. I'm just wanting to enjoy the upcoming year and worry about all the other logistic then when you get closer but not now...but hey i know some are like that can't even enjoy today worrying about tomorrow.

 

You may be that type however i'm not.

I was doing some back of the napkin math yesterday, and the Flyers have roughly $6 million coming off the cap next season. Which means that they will have that $6 million, plus whatever space they have this year, plus whatever the cap goes up, which could very likely be another small number, to sign Myers, Patrick, Lindblom, and a backup goalie. They're looking like they're going to be pushing up against the cap this season, so that leftover cap seems likely to be fairly low, so maybe $11 million all told if they're lucky. You almost have to hope that those guys all have disappointing seasons in order to get them all under contract, because if just one of them breaks out, you're going to have a decision to make. Then the next year, you have Sanheim, Hart, and (maybe) Hagg, again with only about $6 million coming off your cap

 

Once again hopefully good problems to have and i guess there could be trades and things done to help find ways around this.

 

I just am not going to put all this worry on Hayes especially till i know what he impact will be....besides if it goes south than we have 6 more years to complain about it....but i could be driving to work tomorrow and get hit by a bus...and then really Hayes and his contract will be the last thing i worry about...or hey the Flyers win the Cup in 2020-21 and none us will even give a fuk about his deal....i will hold out hope for the latter part....crazier things have happened like the Blues winning it all with a rookie goalie...

 

...but by all means don't let me stop anyone from harping on this deal by all means this place as i said before will be saving mutts everywhere from being booted...

It's not always that easy, but sometimes you do what you've gotta do.  

It's one advantage bigger markets still have.  Even if you don't like the weather in Philly, the Wawa deals can Go a long way.

Sure. And in a couple years they have to revisit them again. Bridge deals are fine for a bit, but they can kill you too.

They don't need to though. All they need is to have $3-5 million seasons, and you're in trouble.

      So, we're back to..."Oh look...shiny!"    F*** me, over 7 mil a year for a 20..make that 19 goal scorer....for 7 f****** years...he did rack up THREE playoff points... while getting benched....Fletcher saves that 5th rounder!    the return of the son of Homer.   Does this mean we pay Provorov $14 Million a year?   Whens the buyout?   This is Bryz all over again...without the insane comic relief.    Holmgren signed some really dumb contracts.

      He absolutely is. If he wasn't, he wouldn't have gotten it. That's how markets work.    And Philly is not the only team that would have ponied it up.    Jeff Skinner, career high 63 points (with Eichel feeding him the puck), $9M Evander Kane, career high 57 points (7 years ago), $7M Ryan O'Reilly, career high 64 points at the time of signing, $7.5M Brock Nelson, career high 53 points, $6M JVR, career high 62 points, $7M   We don't have to like it

      Just to prove that I'm not a complete grumpy F|_|ck...   -This was definitely NOT a team building contract, but it is sort of in line with some of the other gross contracts out there. I think it was too much both in dollars and term, but if a team thinks they're in the Cup window, those are the sorts of deals they're willing to sign. -The Flyers are, this week, suddenly a very good team on paper, and should have money left to spend on their RFA contracts. -This series of move

      The team has been transformed,  it has been pretty expensive.     Like last year this should be a good team on paper even if nothing else happens.   I think 7 x 7 is too beaucoup for soul brotha...that said; we go Couturier,  Hayes, Patrick and Laughton down the middle...**** you little men, try and get the puck from us. Also, the Flyers got 3 players capable of playing quality pk minutes in this flurry of activity.  This team should be better, new veteran coaches,

      @elmatus   Imagine not playing 8 goaltenders last year and the big free agent signing didn't miss the first 2.5 months of the season from a freak injury.   Or imagine one of those 8 goalies proved to "not suck" for I don't know 3 months, do we still think last year's team was a dumpster fire?   I don't i think last year's team was as bad as they showed.  I also know Gudas' ceiling was reached and it wasn't very high, I know Macdonald was a passenger and not worth hi
