There has been much speculation on what the Flyers and in particularly Paul Holmgren himself, have up their sleeves this summer. Most Flyers fans don't have a running count down to the draft of June 22nd, but ask them when free agency starts... and they'll tell you... 36 days, 7 hours and 11 minutes. With the Flyers connecting their names and interests to players like Timmonen, Briere, Gomez, and Souray, may fans are expecting a signing at 12:01 am on July 1st. But before we get to that, there is still some business at had.
The RFA's: As expected the flyers have already nailed down, Lasse Kukkonen, Scottie Upshall, and Ben Eager (a personal favorite).
