    buying out amac makes no sense. Fletch should have the balls to tell AV and Amac that they are putting him in LHV for his last yr, and that he has 0.0% chance of making the team out of camp. dont even have him with the "NHL" group in training camp. You can give Amac agent permission to find a trade partner at 50%, if he wants.

    It does make some sense. You save real money, you free up almost $4m in space in 19-20 to potentially make some big moves, and the cap penalty in 20-21 will be under $2m.

    The Flyers have moved on from a bunch of guys this season. Hextall, Hak, Weal, Weise, Neuvirth, Lehtera, Stolarz, Simmonds and likely Ellliott. MacDonald should be added to that list. They already have an overpaid veteran for the AHL in Schlemko.

    Cap is projected to be 83 million. 47 million is allocated under contract. Philadelphia Flyers 2019 Salary Cap Between Hartman, Provorov and Konecky say another 15 million 21 million under. We need a backup goalie and I don't trust Talbot a bit. If I trusted Elliott to be healthy I'd pay 2m for the backup spot. Kinkaid doesn't wow me either. How about McElhinney for 1 year and hope youngsters ready in 20-21. Backup goalie are ugly and can't see a Varmalov type coming in to backup at reasonable rate. So I can see one major addition and one depth addition we can make. So I'll go Duchene for 2c and Tanev for 4th line. EK I ain't paying 6-7 years. You are eating 3 years if that is the case. Hayes can't play in playoffs. If Ghost plus say Ratcliffe gets you a legit 2ish defensemen I am all ears. Panarin I would be shocked if he isn't in Florida. Skinner as a fall back I wouldn't get mad at.

    Buyout Amac. Resign all RFAs.

    Resign Talbot.

    Sign Karlsson.

    Trade for an established but still youngish 2C with some favorable term. Someone like RNH. Use 11th overall as a base.

    Giroux-Couturier-Voracek
    JVR-RNH-TK
    Lindblom-Patrick-Frost/Farabee
    Raffl-Laughton-Hartman

    Provy-Karlsson
    Sanheim-Gudas
    Ghost-Myers

    Hart
    Talbot

    Go all out on Panarin. If that fails we see who makes the team out of Frost/Farabee/Ratcliff.

    trouba and karlsson because if we are looking at teams that have advanced, they are loaded with d, the flyers have to do the same, if they want to get a center, i would for a cheap 2nd line in fa or on a rookie deal like rnh.

    With all due respect, the NHL did not reach out and say, 'hey, we're planning to start you in Prague, can you confirm you're not trading Voracek.' It's laughable to even suggest it.

    If Chuckles turns down a deal for Voracek or Gudas because they are opening in Prague, he should be fired immediately, or just fold the whole friggin' franchise. No one cares about Prague, or whether we have any Czech players. The games will sell out because of the novelty, even it we had a team full of Finns.

    Why is that laughable to even suggest that when we have one of the most prominent players from their country? That’s what a smart business would do. Voracek playing in front of his home country brings more importance to the game.

    I don’t think that’s such a crazy idea.

    We're not talking a major world market that is key to the expansion of the NHL brand (and TV rights).

    We care about Prague, of course, just not this game. @kudymen you can breathe more easily - we care.

    I don't make a trade or sign a free agent defenseman. Everything in house is perfectly fine. Just a good coach that can maximize the group is all that's needed.

    If we go all in for guys like Girardi, Glass, and VandeVelde having them play for a scrub like Hakstol would be a total waste of their talents

    been easy to play against for way too many years now. Zack Kassian was available for next to nothing, not sure he is anymore. He would be a good fit. While unlikely to be available Evander Kane.

    Defenseman to take off pressure away from Provorov and let veteran play some tough minutes.
    a scoring forward would be nice, preferable a center.
    PKer because I cannot watch this anymore..

    this would be insane.

    What's wrong with Nelson and Connolly? The Flyers need a center that can eventually move to the wing and they need a third line right winger. Nelson is a center that can play wing and can fill the 2C role until Patrick is ready or Frost is ready to fill that spot. Connolly is a good third line right winger. It's clear that NAK is probably not going to get a chance in Philadelphia, so why not grab the 22 goal guy who scored 21 of those goals at even strength?

    The only one I had to think about was McElhinney, but the other goaltenders available through free agency leave a lot to be desired. I'd love to grab Lehner from Long Island, but he's probably going to get a new contract from the Islanders and it's going to be in the 4 to 5 million a year range - that's starter money and that means having Hart in a back up role. I just can't see Fletcher doing that.

    Because it makes no sense to spend 4-6 million on depth players AND give them term, when we do have the replacements in house within 1 year.

    I personally want a stopgap F who can play C. But we don't need to spend that money on guys with term, unless they are elite...like a Panarin. Afterall, we "could" have those holes filled already by Patrick, Frost and Farabee. Having a backup plan is smart. But that plan should not be signing 2 guys coming off career years to long term deals.

    Connolly had 3 straight years of 25-27 points....this year 46.
    Nelson 4 straight years of 35-45 points....this year 53.
