Jesus christ, talk about overpaying every UFA! And where did all our RFAs go?

Here's the problem, the honest truth is the Flyers sucked last year, and now they don't have Wayne Simmonds anymore. The point of this is making them competitive immediately next year. You'll have to overpay a few free agents to make them want to come to Philly rather than someone else where they have a better chance of winning. This is a rebuild to make the Flyers good and put them in the playoffs. You keep the RFAs and they'll be even worse this year than they were last year. With this they have an awesome offense, a good defense, and a young eventually to be great goaltender.

So keeping Provorov, Sanheim, Konecny etc. makes them worse? What are you smoking because I want some! But please keep AHL players Vechionne and Corban Knight in the lineup!

So I brought back Provorov, and Konecny, but I had to send Vecchione, and Lindblom. I meant to resign Provorov and Konecny but missed it somehow. I think this could be a really good team though, and could be a threat in the playoffs

Well between Provy and Konecny, you are about $5 mil short on their total contracts. There is ZERO way you make this team work.

I mean I'm sorry, but no way this team could work??? This team would battle for top in the east. Do you even see the players I brought in??? This would be the best Flyers team since the Forsberg, Gagne era, by far! I'm telling you a Flyers team like this, would be at least in the Eastern Conference Finals!

After you fix the salaries, you can't afford those players. Plus teams don't carry the min # of allowable players. That is the point and the reason this won't work. But to your point, the D is still a huge mess! Hagg is not a top 4 and Schlemko isn't even an NHLer

The only reason I resigned Neuvirth was to give a backup goaltender, not really any other reason

True, I'll try to fix it up a bit, see what I can come up with
