    Hoffman's 28, had 22G/34A...has scored 27, 29 and 26 goals the prior 3 years and is making $5.1875 for 2 more years.

    ROR is 27, had 24g/37A...has had 28, 17, 21 and 20 goals the prior 4 years and is making $7.5 mill for the next 5 years.

    Due to the contracts ROR will cost much less.

    I'd offer the 19th pick and maybe a mid tier prospect for ROR.
    If Hextall is actually willing to go out and find a legit goalie for next season, I'm on board with moving #19 for ROR. This team is young, adding a solid 27 yo would be a nice move for 3-4 years. Pick #19 likely won't see the ice for 2-3 years.

    Carlson, who has blossomed into one of the NHL’s premier defensemen, could have been a Flyer.

    In 2008, then-Flyers’ general manager Paul Holmgren desperately wanted a righthanded defensemen, so he sent Washington their first-round pick (27th overall) for Steve Eminger and a third-round selection that turned out to be goaltender Jacob DeSerres. (DeSerres, who never reached the NHL, was chosen nine picks before the Caps took Braden Holtby.)

    The Capitals drafted Carlson with the pick they received from the Flyers. Eminger, who was Mike Richards’ Kitchner teammate in juniors, played 12 games with the Flyers and was quickly dealt to Tampa Bay with Steve Downie for Matt Carle.

    The most fucked up part was the Caps were not even going to qualify him; they were letting him walk. A fn 7th rd pick would have sealed the deal

    Another incident where Holmgren lacked the patience Hextall has...and it cost the Flyers.

    He should have been fired on the spot. Beyond incompetent. I hope he goes for another drunk bike ride in traffic after seeing him raise the cup as a #1 D.
