Kukla's Korner Hockey

from John Boruk at CSN Philly on June 20th,
Here are eight reasons I believe the Flyers should submit an offer sheet for Predators defenseman Shea Weber:
Flyers General Manager Paul Holmgren has to proceed as if Chris Pronger won’t return. If he does, and it doesn’t appear anytime soon, you simply cross that bridge when you come to it and make the appropriate moves to clear the cap space to work him back onto the active roster. Secondly, Kimmo Timonen will be entering the final season of his 6-year contract and there will be a considerable amount of wear-and-tear on his 38-year-old treads. On-going back issues could force Timonen to retire after the 2012-13 season.
Are you willing to place your faith in Ilya Bryzgalov without one of the league’s elite defensemen in front of him?
