Nobody has said anything about a trade so far.  All indications (admittedly very vague) are that Holland is signing someone, which would imply that it's a free agent. </p></blockquote>

Glad to hear we cleared that up.

To be fair, I often use the "signage" lingo when talkng about trades. Is there anything to say it's definitely NOT a trade?

Watch it be someone totally off the radar, like Brian Rafalski who somehow managed to get back into playing shape...

Nothing that I've seen that definitely rules out a trade.  But also not a single source that has used to word "trade" rather than "sign". 

 

But Holland is playing it close to the chest, so the reporters probably don't know anything more than anyone else.

Also, this is pretty cool because we're guaranteed to know who it is by gametime - at the very, very latest.

Well here are the options I see from the UFA list... although I'm not sure how it works with players that are playing in Europe...

 

Shaone Morrisonn - currently playing for HC Spartak Moscow

Jaroslav Spacek - retired (38 yrs old)

Chris Campoli - UFA

Pavel Kubina - currently playing for HC Vitkovice

Alexandre Picard - currently playing for HC Lev Praha

Brett Clark - currently playing in in AHL

Jeff Finger - UFA

Randy Jones - UFA

Sami Lepisto - currently playing for HC Lev Praha

Brad Lukowich - UFA

Colin White - UFA

 

I'd personally like to see us go to our youth again, as Lashoff impressed in his first game on both sides of the rink.  Why not bring up Max Nicastro?



Lilja was waived a couple days ago, why would Holland trade for him?

 

Lilja cleared waivers and can be re-called without risk of being nabbed by another team (new rule in CBA)

 

"Thanks to the new CBA, there are no longer re-entry waivers, so either can be recalled by the Flyers without risk."

Isn't Vandermeer on waivers? Sign him.

Because it's Ken Holland.

also because our defense has been sub par (to be generous) thus far, and with even more injuries now he can't risk it getting worse. That and we can't deplete the GR defense completely they are down to 6 d-men without smith and lashoff as is

I tried to be cool and charm a little info from Ansar Khan on the mlive story.  I called my buddy who works for mlive and (half) jokingly asked him to call Khan and squeeze him for info.  I might resort to flat out begging him for info if he doesn't break the story soon. 

 

Clearly, patience is not a virtue I exhibit with any sort of class.

Wouldn't it be completely opposite? Ken Holland strictly believes in developing through the draft and in-house. "Because it's Ken Holland" would normally result in him calling up Max Nicastro, instead of searching for an UFA. Nah i'm just busting your chops.

Well with Colo out, they need someone, that's for sure.  Wish Hannan didn't sign with Nashville for a bag of peanuts.

Hmm, I was just about to go barge in to the mlive building here in Ann Arbor throwing my hands in the air requesting information about this. SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME DAMN INFORMATION. I can't even be productive on game-days, and then they throw me this information this morning? God. I can't even move from my laptop right now.
