Ok so i don't write very much and this is not really my thing but with that being said i thought that i might weigh in on my beloved Flyers.
With Shea Weber staying in nashville what are the flyers going to do now??? seems to be the big question everyone in flyer nation has been pondering, and yes i know that Homer will most likely come up with something i heard Jay bo could be a possibility i sure hope not but that's not my call. with all that being said i was taking a look at the flyers roster and what would be coming up for next year, i know it's early but i don't care.
i found that there were a few things that maybe should be mentioned. Homer took a big risk by tendering a sheet to Weber, the only reason that i say that is because of the personal that is going to become a UFA after next season with guys like Hartnell, Simmonds, Meszaros being the big 3 that are due for new contracts 2 of which i think that Philly has to sign and 1 could go either way.
all i am saying here is that the flyers are going to be in a tight spot when it comes to the next off season harts will be looking for a raise along with simmonds if either of them have a year that they had this past one and simmonds is only going to get better, then what kind of price tag will they bring, also i know that meszaros did not have a good year but he did will the Barry Ashby trouphy the previous year if that guy shows up again he will also be looking for a new contract that holds a raise, this is not even counting whether or not timmonen will be back after this season or if philly will resign him, if he does chose to play at all remains up to him and what this season will bring, but if he does how much do you pay the aging workhorse?.
Now with all that being said, those are the four biggest things that will have to be dealt with at the season's end, you have to either sign or trade or do whatever Homer is thinking with these 4 guys going on the fact that you will have your biggest superstar and 2 of your biggest potential stars coming up for contract renew the next year, Giroux, Braydon Schenn, Sean coturier. Giroux will be taking a huge pay increase over the 3.75 mill that he was previously paid along with the other 2 guys shaping up to be stars in the nhl they could also bring in a potentially large price tag.
I know that it's a long time away and i am positive that the Flyers are way ahead of all of us on this stuff but i could see a potential for big changes coming inside the philly nation, i am excited and curious to see whats going to happen over the next couple years.
