Not to sound like Eddie Vedder here, but I’m still alive and well. Haven’t updated in almost a month. The Gagne news crushed me, and there wasn’t anything I could say about it that wasn’t being said elsewhere. There hasn’t been much else to write about with our salary cap situation and such. I’ve been working a lot and trying to get some vacation time in before heading back to school. The Flyers have re-signed all their RFAs, including Coburn, Carcillo, and Powe. Powe is a great signing because Blair Betts is one of the many Flyers to go under surgery, and he probably won’t be ready to do full-contact until late September or early October. I’ve read that it could be November before he plays, so let’s hope Powe steps up to take Betts’ role.
I’ll have more to write when things start happening. I’ll be sure to do a “Meet the New Flyers” and Division Preview again, but that won’t be for a while. The good news is, hockey is about 2 months away. Gotta love it.
