We probably have a better chance of getting him than some of the other names people have been throwing around.
Namely because he's older, and doesn't fight that much anymore. Buffalo may think he's expendable, whereas guys like Clarkson or Nystrom are more likely to be re-signed, or to have multiple teams pursuing them.
Mair would not be the guy I'd be looking for to join us. There's better options out there, even though I think it'll be harder to land those other options.
The Flyers shouldn't have even been in this series! The way the Blackhawks are built this year, they should have totally dismantled this team in four. It's good to see a team like Philly, a true underdog hang in there like they are.
I have posted multiple times, prior to this series about my dislike for Philly. But in all honesty, I have found a great deal of respect for this team.
The Flyers actually have a good team on paper.
Two great scoring lines + Giroux, great checkers all around, and pretty solid top 4 defensemen.
They're weak in net, but Chicago hardly has a big name back there themselves.
I do think Chicago has a bit more scoring depth, but Philly has a pretty loaded team on paper, thus the series should be close, contrary to what you say.
