Flyers announce assistant GM Chris Pryor and assistant coach Gord Murphy have been fired. Pryor had a huge hand in running the draft. Murphy oversaw the defensemen under Craig Berube and Dave Hakstol


Lots of media guys on twitter saying that the Pryor firing was a surprising (and bad) move. I loathe the organization, but the Flyers have amassed a really strong collection of young talent recently. He'd be a hell of a hire here.

I'd give Nylander 8x8 without blinking. He's a star now and $8M will be a bargain for him in 3-4 years as the cap goes up and the inevitable guilt-free compliance buyout comes with Seattle's entry into the league. Pulock may develop into a star or he may not.

Just to be clear, this is more of a compliment to Nylander than it is a slight to Pulock. With Toews beating down the door as the next offensive defenseman I think it hedges against enough of the risk of moving Pulock to make me comfortable in trading him.

- eichiefs9


Funny thing is we talk about Toews being a kid and he's older than Pulock by a few months

Having watched him a few times, I'm not sure how much more there is to learn about him without calling him up and seeing whether or not he can hack it in the NHL. He looks good in the AHL -- doesn't panic or in any way seem overwhelmed, and he makes solid plays more often than not. I mean, I would have said the same about Matt Donovan a few years ago, too, but that's kind of my point...at some point, another AHL all star appearance wasn't going to teach him anything more or teach the organization anything more about him; they had to call him up and throw him in there to see he wasn't going to make it. Some guys adjust; some don't.

[quote=Cptmjl]His offensive game will come im pretty certain Trotz has him playing a more structured, defensive game he’ll probably let loose the reigns a little bit as the season progresses. I believe there’s still in a feeling out process as far as what their responsibilities are.

Absolutely. Trotz even states that they are "headed in the right direction", though obviously not there yet. And then adds, "we will get there". Its SO refreshing to have a head coach and staff (outside of Gomez;damn that power play sucks) that know what they are doing.

Yeah not really understanding Gomez surviving the initial purge especially now watching the car wreck that is our power play. Have to think it’s due to his past relationship with Lameriello unless there’s some obscure thing that he’s bringing to the table that we’re not seeing...

Two areas the Islanders are painfully thin at. Like I said, I know it ain't happening, but if Pulock and another (reasonable) asset were the price tag I'd probably have pulled the trigger if it were up to me.

I honestly think a bridge deal will get done with the Leafs around 6 - 6.5 Mil.

100%, he's not going to sit out an entire year. That's why in my initial post about him I made it clear that it was entirely theoretical. I would love for it to happen, but it's a total moot point because it's not going to.

Yup I knew what you we doing
Yes I agree, stupid move on his part. Would lose a lot of $$$$ this year and also would get a shatty reputation, which isn't good.

I think it will be closer to $7 million based on something I read about where the two sides are at.... (can't remember where)

Calvin Pickard (PHI) on waivers


Not important, but I'd love to scoop him for the Soundtigers and finally kick Chris Gibson to the curb. He stinks. 3.47GAA and 40 goals allowed in 13 starts.

- eichiefs9

How would that work? If the Isles scoop him off the waiver wire, aren't they required to keep him in the NHL or place him on waivers themselves?

Yeah, he'd have to clear waivers again to go to the AHL. Right now the Isles are in the middle 1/3 (the back end of it) of the entire league. Waiver priority runs in reverse order of the standings, so if the Isles are able to claim him then about 1/3 of the league already passed on him. Top 1/3 of the league all already have their goaltending situations more than covered. Chances are reasonably good that there wouldn't be a lot of competition for him and he'd likely pass through on his second go-around.

And we have now beat to death an off-hand comment I made about a hypothetically-OK move for our minor league affiliate.

Don't you know enough not to make off-hand comments on non-game days? Like we have anything more interesting to discuss.....
