Found June 17, 2013 on
Kinda crazy day for the Flyers.
For starters, as Eklund wrote earlier, Danny Briere is a definite buyout recipient next week while goalie Ilya Bryzgalov, as I have been saying, remains up in the air.
I reported tonight on CSNPhilly.com that 2 sources say the problem remains the Flyer getting another goalie they really want and feel confident with BEFORE making the Bryz decision.

Each team, under the new CBA that goes into effect next week, is allowed two amnesty buyouts of big salaries. Why not punish teams for past sins? Cap compliance, of course. The Flyers have two very large contracts that don't look very practical: those of goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov and forward Danny Briere. Briere has been informed that he will be the first of the two buyouts,...

With the increasing likelihood that the Flyers will buy out Ilya Bryzgalov this summer rather than giving the relationship a third season, there has been much recent speculation on candidates to either compete with Steve Mason for the starting job or serve a backup goalie capable of handling a significant chunk of playing time if Mason falters or gets hurt. There are no current international...

No NHL team quite does craziness like the Philadelphia Flyers.
After falling short of the postseason for the first time since 2006-07, most league observers expected Philadelphia to aggressively look to improve their roster in the offseason, both via free agency and the trade market.
But rarely do...
Hello Mark Streit. Au revoir Danny Briere.
One 35 year old player arrives in Philly while another 35 year old soon-to-be-will be departing soon.
Earlier Tuesday night, CSN Philly's Tim Panaccio confirmed ESPN's Pierre LeBrun's report that
the Philadelphia Flyers have indeed decided to buyout the centerman.
According to the report, Briere and Flyers GM Paul...
from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull,
When Streit is officially signed, he will have a $5.25 million cap hit per season. That means the Flyers’ top six defensemen next year - Kimmo Timonen, Luke Schenn, Nick Grossmann, Braydon Coburn, Andrej Meszaros and Streit - will have a combined $26.85 million cap hit for 2013-14. That’s 41.8 percent of the team’s $64.3 million...
