11:28 AM ET 02.03 | Several unrestricted free agents this summer will draw the Flyers' attention, but those same players may be available in trades before then. The Flyers might want to make a deal for one of them with the hope that the player would like Philadelphia and sign with the club after the season - and not just be a rental for a few months. The Flyers, who could become sellers themselves if they don't start improving, have a little more than $1.5 million in cap space. But that number can grow significantly if Chris Pronger ($4.9 million cap hit) and Matt Walker ($1.7 million) are placed on the long-term injured list.

whether buyer or seller, you can always be certain that there will be all sorts of random action with this franchise.

Why hasn't Pronger been placed in the long term IR at this point? Seems as though the Flyers could really use the cap space to upgrade the team.

I thought that players that signed contracts after they turn 35 can't be hidden

This team is going to do both ...buy and sell....I think they've gotta look to shake things up some

Yep. Forever chasing that elusive formula that can finally put them over the top. No matter what they do or how much money they throw at it, they're unable to find it.

That's because they have the wrong guys looking for it.

I won't argue that point.

After all he is the one that gave Pierre McGuire a head coaching job in Hartford where the players mutinied and Holmgren was forced to push Pierre off the gangplank
