Just a reminder for everyone that was pushing for MG to make a hasty trade and to accept the most ridiculous deals....

Lots of people wanted MG to make a deal before the lockout and accept the crumbles they were willing to offer.... MG stuck to his guns and took a chance to wait it out. Now that the Flyers could use their buyout clause on Bryz it expands the market on Lou which should equal a better return... Genius! And I can't imagine that he hadn't thought this through the whole time......

If this creates some sort of bidding war than I just hope the GMMG haters remember this!

I wonder if the Isles will be knocking on GMMG's door too? The more the merrier :)

Question: If the Isles and Flyers are both in the mix...which team would be able to offer the better deal and what do you think that would be?

How exactly are the Flyers going to carry the contracts of both Bryzgalov and Luongo for the rest of this season? Compliance buyouts do not start until after this season ends.

Plus, when was the last time Holmgren lost a trade either acquiring a top player or trading one away? If he gets Luongo I bet it will not be Couturier, Schenn, or the like coming back in the deal.

Luongo will probably not agree to go to the Islanders so they are probably a non starter in the negotiations.

Luongo to Flyers = cup

That team is a team built for the playoffs but goaltending has been their downside for a while
