Well the hour is finally almost here. At noon today, the NHL will open free agency, which is a welcome relief for fans who have sifted through countless speculative reports ranging from ‘obvious maybes’ to headline-heavy/reality-light big-name web traffic grabbers. When summer started early for the Flyers, we gave the reasons we wouldn’t be getting too deep into all the possibilities, which can be summarized as: Through our many hockey hot stove seasons here in Philly, we’ve learned that (A) the Flyers are annually among the teams linked to nearly every available player, and (B) few people correctly predict the major moves they do end up making before their announcement. To try to address every rumor… It just seems like a waste of our time and yours. And this is coming from someone who knows how to waste some time.
