Flyers Not as Different as I Thought


Last night at the bar I was trying to explain to Mrs. FGSB how different the Flyers lineup is going to be this year. I set her up for the big fall and then started going through the lines with her:   Zherdev - Richards - Carter Hartnell - Briere - Leino Reemer - Giroux - Powe Laperriere - Betts - Carcillo/Shelley   Pronger - Carle Timonen - Coburn Meszaros - O'Donnell/Walker   Leighton Boucher   It was then that she asked me what the hell I was talking about.   I was pretty shocked. In a summer where it feels like so much has happened there's really only been 1 significant subtraction and 2 significant additions to the Flyers roster. Zherdev replaces Gagne and instead of only having 2 pairs of defensemen we now have 3 (one would hope).   I would guess that this is the unit we'll be starting the season with in 2 months time. CapGeek has us at $300k under the salary cap - second closest to the cap without exceeding it behind the Bruins who still have a situation (not Jersey Shore related) to resolve involving Tim Thomas, Marc Savard, and Blake Wheeler.
