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,
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
My hope is ...he Hayes succeeds. Then, Seattle says we'd like that unprotected high value multi role guy on our roster so we are competitive out of the gate.
Fletcher hems and haws but ultimately waves goodbye to 7 x7 and the next year Morgan Frost moves to 3c and Nolan Patrick resumes his 2c career.
I hope Hayes does what he's signed to do here and then in seattle
