    I'm ok with losing anyone on the exposed list, including Weal. That's the one I don't get...he's a nice player but folks are seeing a lot more in him than I think he's ever going to be capable of meeting.

    I've been hearing Raffl a lot more than Read.

    Can someone confirm that if Weal signs with LV during this LV-only UFA period, then that counts as their expansion draft pick and they can't pick someone else from us? I'm lazy and searching these things can be annoying.

      Confirmed. If they sign anyone's UFA during this period, that counts as their pick from that team.

        I just have to wonder what hexy is thinking at the G position. If neuvy gets picked then we have NO nhl goaltenders... scary position. I feel like he must have a handshake deal with mason.

        Weal had 8-4-12 in 23 games. Thats 28-14-42 over a full season. Small sample size but he's a proven AHL scorer, has nhl speed and can protect the puck. And seems to be playing defense now! That's reason for optimism.

        Bellemare doesn't bother me... he's Ian Laperriere. Having bellemare AND VV is too much tho, you only need one made-the-most-of-his-limited-talent guy.

          We can prorate guys with immense NHL abilities to ridiculous 100+ point totals after 25 games...but we know it's meaningless

          Weal's a nice player with some potential, but like PEB and VV in the limited talent role, the Flyers have a lot of Forwards in that middle-six potential range Weal is pencilled in at.

            I've seen some talk that Hexy is/will cut a deal for one of LVGKs many goaltender picks tomorrow.

            Speculation that Laughton was protected to flip for a goalie on the exposed list

              I prefer that than trading a pick for one of those goalies.
              "Oh, We got five. Ohhhhh."

                Reading TSN mocks earlier, Button had Neuvirth taken (as Vegas' fourth goalie after selecting three others), while Seravalli had them taking only three (same other three as Button) goalies and ending up with Weal (he didn't specify if signed by Vegas, or signed by Flyers in time & then selected by Vegas)
