Found June 20, 2012 on HockeyBuzz:
With the future of Chris Pronger in jeopardy, the Philadelphia Flyers have been looking for a defenseman to replace him. Apparently their search has taken them to the Avalanche where, apparently, they have called about the services of restricted free agent Erik Johnson. Jimmy Stizzle (judge his validity on your own) reported that the Flyers are trying to send James van Riemsdyk to Colorado...

Jaromir Jagr an Intriguing Option in Free Agency, But Doesn't Appear to Be Right Fit for Bruins

Jaromir Jagr enjoyed his first season in Philadelphia, but not enough to prevent him from checking out what other opportunities may be available to him next year. Jagr appears set to test the free agent market on July 1, as was first reported by TSN's Darren Dreger on Monday. Despite his age, the 40-year-old veteran will attract plenty of interest with precious few proven scorers...

Follow him on Twitter: @Mitch_SBMedia   Name: Jay McClement Age: 29 Size: 6’1″, 205lbs Why the Canucks might want him: McClement may be one of the most underrated centres going into UFA on July 1st.

Tim Panaccio: Reading Orange Tea Leaves

There's so much double-speak with the FLyers anymore, it's hard to get a handle on what their game plan is for free agency and such. General manager Paul Holmgren repeated his usual mantra of "I like our team" on Monday several times. He liked it so much he traded away the 2 faces of the franchise last year and basically ripped apart the team and rebuilt it...

Why Signing Jaromir Jagr Is A Terrible Idea

So if you haven't read Matt Kalman's post over at CBSBoston.com yet, do so before venturing on. A lot of what I'm going to say is going to be a reflection of that piece. Now, don't get this misconstrued in any way. Days of Y'Orr loves Kalman. We love his snarky attitude on Twitter and we think he's a damn good writer, but we don't agree that Jagr would...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Bryz, Giroux, Draft, Lindros

The trashing and scapegoating of Ilya Bryzgalov over the past year has been carried to such ridiculous proportions that I think a little counterweight is in order to present a more realistic and balanced picture both of his 2011-12 season and prospects moving forward. No one would tell you that Bryzgalov had the type of season that the team hoped to see. He was extremely inconsistent...
