If Holmgren gives Lecavalier 5x5 after buying out Bryz and Briere for bad contracts.... man.

I know im going to get laughed out of the forums but do you guys like Briere enough to be on our team if we couldn't snag Vinny?

Absolutely not. If some say Vinny is a shell of his former self, Briere's shell isn't even intact anymore...pass (unless he takes some crazy huge discount to play here)

Well, live on TSN Dreger just said he's working on getting details, but indeed the bumbling idiot of a GM Paul Holmgren has landed Vincent Lecavalier. I'm sure we'll hear the contracts details soon.

Well then... Just like Parise and suter, at least we don't have to worry about him going somewhere and actually winning something haha

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

:lol: That's a way to put it. The Flyers are just embarrassments to the league, use one of the biggest buyouts of the amnesty period, and then SIGN the other biggest buyout.. like come on Holmgren.

In this case, I'm glad we didn't bite on Vinny ... Philly's mismanagement of things is too scary ... BRING ON THE YOUTH!!!

So typical of the Flyers. Overpay/overterm now and worry about it later

Don't worry. It's being reported as 5 years and only $23.5 million.... So much better than 5 X $5mm wouldn't you say?

PHILLY?! Unbelievable.

Every time I see they sign someone, I'm reminded of this article on Puck Daddy...

Why Would Anyone Sign With The Flyers?
http://sports.yahoo....55834--nhl.html

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!
