Streit traded to Philly..? Buyouts?

Rate this topic

13 posts in this topic

Bob McKenzie on Twitter is reporting Philly has traded for Mark Streit - NYI. Gave up a 4th round pick in 2014. Likely to sign 2 year deal for 5 mil/per. Over 35 so it all counts.

He suggests compliance buyouts in the works for Bryzgalov and Briere. I would post a link but I dont have the capability at this moment.

I know I might be in the minority, but I'd love to see our hometown team get in on some early UFA action. Before the prices go sky high.

The Wings could potentially trade for someone's rights, but short of that I wouldn't hold my breathe on a FA signing.

The team is trying to re-sign, Brunner, Cleary and Miller and then has a bunch of RFA's to deal with. Without shipping some salary out there isn't really any cap space for any Free Agents.

I too would take briere if he was a good price instead of inking Cleary or Miller. But again I would rather create a roster of scoring lines with a little sand paper on every line i.e Bertuzzi, Toot's, Abby and Helm. Put the Datsyuks, Zetterbergs, Nyquists. Franzens, Brunners, Tatar's & Briere's around those 4 "grittier" guys and f*ck yeah off to the races.

As much as I USED to like Danny Briere.

Going to have to say pass on him.

As for Streit's rights getting traded to Philly?

Not surprised one bit Holmgren made this move.

Pass on Briere. He'll be 36 in October. 16 points in 34 games this year. He's past his prime.

Wings need to get bigger meaner and stronger younger, so no to Danny boy

Does anyone else have the feeling that Philly is going to buyout two bad contracts in order to sign one more bad one?

What is the difference between Paul Holmgren and Glen Sather (Rangers, not Oilers)? Nothing.....

Erm... there is plenty of space.

Id take him if we were a bigger team, but with brunner staying(hopefully) we don't need another smaller player.

I should clarify.

I'd take Briere as, shall we say, a "playoffs specialist." I wouldn't expect him to be a core player or anything like that. It's just, if he could be had for dirt cheap, and there's a possibility that he might be able to find that postseason touch of his (has he ever played with a Datsyuk or a Zetterberg?), I think he might be worth it. One of those low-risk, high-reward dealies.

Believe me, I'm fully on-board the we-need-to-get-bigger-stronger-meaner bus.
