Wayne Simmonds will be gone by the trade deadline if not before.
Voracek needs to be moved while there is some value.
Other UFA's like Lehtera and Folin will just fade away.
A defenseman will be moved maybe as part of a package.The can't really get anything for McDonald so it might be Guess but I think in the right deal they move Sanheim.
JVR was given too much term and of course too much money.
Need to look at it some more but I think that Giroux needs to be a full time center if he isn't doing that already.
Holmgren needs to hire GM though that he won't float a win now mentality on or else bad trades and bad signings will ensue.Guaran damn teed.

Simmons will be gone. He has a lot of wear and tear on his body, but he is a heart & soul type of player and will be missed.

Voracek is a lazy bum. Fun fact of the day, 18 pts in 24 games, but 10 pts came in 2 games.

JVR can't skate and is a PP player only. Wasted signing.

Giroux is better off at wing as it will be him fresher as he gets older. They need to put Couturier on the 2nd line and make a trade to get a true 1st line center. Ryan O' Reilly would work for me.

Need to get away from hiring ex-flyers for everything. The incest needs to stop. New GM needs to make some moves and he needs to bring in Quenneville.
Agree with everything except Quenneville.  I might also add that Holmgren should be fired.  He was a hideous GM who somehow received a promotion as a result of his shitty work.  

They should probably do worse than just fire Holmgren. Unless you mean fire him into space aimed at Mars.
Quenneville may not be the right choice, I didn't look around to see who else might be available but the Flyers need a hard ass coach who will stress fundamentals first and not some new wave guru who just recently saw his mother naked.
They need structure and a system and they could probably murder and hide the bodies of their entire scouting staff as well.
Pretty much agree with all of this except for maybe murdering Holmgren.  Perhaps Comcast could make him a customer service manager on the phone lines.  I want all ex-Flyers gone. Enough!  Been almost 44 years since the last cup.  Thanks for the memories. You guys are all old men now.  I am serious that they provided me with great memories.  I had just lost my Father when the Flyers won their first cup.  
Time to move on now. The org needs a complete re-do.  From top to bottom.

Rumor is that Chuck Fletcher with Queeneville is a package deal.

Loved the Flyers in the Cup years. Parent one of my all time faves.Habs fan since I came sliding out of the womb, it was a requirement in our household or I'd have been shoved back in but I've always been a fan of good hockey.
Long time drinks from the Cup but not as long as the Maple Laffs.

Being a Leafs fan has been Hell. I used to spend a lot of time up north and they had a talk radio guy on the afternoon drive who always said this about Leafs fans (because the building was always sold out and they had a huge waiting list):

Leafs fans are either incredibility loyal or incredibly stupid.
