I don't want to lose Carter or any of those guys, but one of them will be going I think. We have lost some great players in the last few years, but I think this off-season will take the cake.(Lupul, Upshall, Knuble, Sbisa, etc.)
They have other players that would shed good money and not be nearly as big of a loss as Carter. Carle, Versteeg, and Hartnell to name a few.

Great Article on Jeff Carter

Jeff Carter, Two-way Forward

Earlier this year, Geoff wrote an excellent article about what a strong season Jeff Carter was having. Geoff's thesis revolved around the observation that Carter was not merely scoring, but doing it despite taking on tough defensive assignments, going out in the defensive zone against the opponent's best players.

It has become a common refrain on this site, that Carter has matured this year and taken on a much more difficult role, and that it's impressive that we didn't see any slip in his production. I've said as much myself on many occasions.

But I'm not so sure it's true. He definitely did take on challenging assignments, that much isn't in question. However, this may not have been anything new for Carter; I think this year was just the first time we recognized what tough minutes he was playing.

The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have acquired the rights to goaltender Ilya Bryzgalov (breez-GAH-lahf, IHL-yah) from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for LW Matt Clackson, the Flyers’ 3rd round draft choice in 2012 and a conditional draft choice, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Bryzgalov, 30, appeared in 68 games for the Coyotes last season, his fourth with the club. He posted a 36-20-10 record, a 2.48 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage while recording seven shutouts. He was also a runner-up for the Vezina Trophy following the 2009-10 season. Bryzgalov was acquired by Phoenix off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks on November 17, 2007.

Bryzgalov was a member of Anaheim’s 2007 Stanley Cup championship squad along with current Flyers defensemen Chris Pronger and Sean O’Donnell. He appeared in 27 games that season, posting a 10-8-6-1 record with a 2.47 GAA and .907 save percentage, and was 3-1 with a 2.24 GAA and .922 save percentage in five Stanley Cup Playoff appearances en route to the championship.

Bryzgalov is on twitter.

The online world was euphoric to see that the subject of secret negotiations is the only one talking — even if it is only in 140 character spurts. On Friday morning, Ilya Bryzgalov himself broke the silence on Twitter.

Bryzgalov’s Twitter handle, @bryzgoalie30, is confirmed according to multiple outlets. So what has the Russian goalie had to say? Some of his tweets are in English, including his first: “Hi guys!!! #Bryzgalov”

Others, however, have come through in Russian and are translated here courtesy of Google Translate…

I don't know how to feel about this deal.
He is a hard hitter that helps a lot on the PK. I think we will need to find another penalty killer to replace him.
The Flyers need to find a mature experienced forward. The team is getting younger each day.

Nice, I like the way Nodl is developing. He is doing well playing 2-way. Most of his points came in the first 1/3rd of the season. He is starting to mature. I would like to have seen maybe 3yr contract. Good $'s worth for $845000 i think.
