Columbus leading the Sharks 6-1 in the 3rd, must be pumped with having almost the entire league's scouts in attendance including the Canucks. :o

Flyers just aren't the same with Harntell out, Leafs leading Flyers 5-1 in the 3rd.

TORONTO -- Philadelphia Flyers forward Sean Couturier was unexpectedly not in the lineup for Monday night's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs. After taking the morning skate early Monday, the 20-year-old forward was not on the ice for the pre-game skate.

The Flyers have yet to comment as to why Couturier was scratched. He was expected to play center between Matt Read and Mike Knuble.

Couturier has not missed any of the Flyers' 12 games this season. He has two goals and three assists over that span.


Add that to Bryz guy getting lit up and pilled. Hmmm
The only HW the Canucks need

Dream On, HW. If Bryz and THAT contract wasn't there, I'd say, ya good chance, but I don't see a deal happening with Philly.

Philly buys out Bryz. Only need to figure out how to fit Lou's contract under salary cap this year. Once Bryz is bought out his contract is a non-issue. Maybe they're waiting for a couple more games til they can squeeze both contracts in this year. I'm not familiar enough with their cap situation this year.

Do you realize how much it will cost to buy Bryz out? And, I may be wrong, but they can't buy him out til seasons over, or next season.

I think it's like $23M, over the next 281 years. I wonder if there's a Death-Clause in his contract? Nope, not only will the Flyers have to stomach paying Bryz to play for someone else, but they'll have to pony up assets to pay Luongo to play goal for them. Won't work.

We'd have a better chance of convincing Lou to waive to play in St. Louis than convincing owner Schneider to waste that kind of money in a Bryz buyout. Philly ain't happening. Too bad that the Blues are in our conference and in St. Louis, they are a perfect fit for Lou. Shite goaltending, well under the cap, both goalies are free agents in a year. Hitch loves good goaltending and defense, the Blues have the 2nd worst goals against in the Western Conference.

Snider <-- has never had a problem spending money to give his team an edge.

See front-loaded $10mil-in-first-year contracts handed to UFAs Bryz & Briere, as well as impending UFA Pronger.

All these older players signed to cap-circumventing mega-deals.

Also see the $127mil-total mega-deals to Richards and Carter.

Snider wouldn't think twice about buying Bryz out if he thought he is washed up and no other team would take him.

Having said that, they're a lot happier with the play of Bryzgalov this year.

I could see them giving him this season and next to re-prove himself.

In the summer of 2014 the compliance buyout would be $17mil.

I severely doubt Lou will ever end up in the City of Brotherly Love, but stranger things have happened.

Hey, this is the team that traded Jeff Carter 7 months after committing to him for 11 years!

If something happened like say Reimer done for the season... :thumbs:

.... I could see your buddy Paul The Schizo Holmgren lining up a Lou-deal plus a Bryz-to-Leaves deal.

Just saying I could see it, not saying it's very likely.


* this post assumes Snider has the final say in major deals

Bryz with the TO media.

Endless humour.

Don Cherry's head would explode. Bob Cole would roll over in his grave.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.
