[Rumour] Philadelphia Flyers after Suter and Parise $200M

62 posts in this topic

Reportedly the Philadelphia Flyers offered a combined amount of $200M or more for Suter and Parise.

Here is some from the article you can read the whole thing here ---> http://sports.yahoo.com/news/philadelphia-flyers-200-million-gamble-parise-suter-classic-231500466--nhl.html

The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly offered a combined amount that is within the range of, or over, $200 million for Nashville Predators free agent defenseman Ryan Suter and New Jersey Devils free agent forward Zach Parise.

Has general manager Paul Holmgren actually made a strategic ploy through his dual 12-year offers in classic 'Bullies' style?

Holmgren wants to improve his team, that much we know. Sharp observers also realize that there are a variety of ways to make that happen.

Assume for a moment that the Flyers front office boss feels Parise (who will be 28 at the end of the month), Suter (who turned 27 in January) or both men won't accept his offers and that they will opt for other suitors instead. Out-bidding every other poker player at the rink would then serve to increase whatever offers the free agents would finally accept.

If one of the players accepts his offer sheet, regardless of who it is, the Flyers have strengthened their team. Plus, there is currently room within their available 2012-13 cap space for him.

If both players accept their offers a few players on the existing roster would have to be moved to make way for them. Doing so would still likely leave very little cap space for future adjustments. In that instance, the Flyers would voluntarily put themselves into a tight financial spot.

That's a lot of money. But I'm not at all surprised that Philly is throwing the kitchen sink at them.

Philly till your 40. Kind of rhymes, but I highly doubt this will happen. Suter to NYR and Parise to NYD/PENS is my prediction atm

That's big money! It might hurt them in the future if they do sign. But i'm expecting Sutter to go to Detroit while Parise to the Pens

Now that's what you call a bold move.

There better be no movement clauses in those in case they end up like a couple of Ex-Flyers.

Parise is quickly becoming the most overrated player in the league.

Once he signs his deal, I'm sure people will flock to trade for Nash..thats how ridiculous Parise's contract is going to be.

Love the player, but get real people, is he really worth that much $$$?

Whatever the offer is, the Minnesota Wild should match. Craig Leipold and Chuck Fletcher could turn Minnesota into a really great team if they brought those two in. Certainly, they'd provide more challenge within our division.
