The Flyers hired Connor McDavid's junior coach as an assistant and have $24 million in projected cap space in 2018-19. #OhSheet

Who gives a ****? He's not Connor McDavid. Do they think some of his talent maybe rubbed off on the coach?? I'd think the coach did most of the rubbing off just from having McDavid on his team...

You didn't understand. The point is that the Flyers will have $24M in space when McDavid becomes an RFA (offer sheet).

I think the idea there is that they have cap room to sign him and have his junior coach. Someone is speculating Philly as a possible landing spot for McJesus

Oh. Is the junior coach really that much of an incentive to make the difference in taking the money or not?

Junior coach + 15M + living in Philly instead of Edmonton altogether. But Wyshynski is making fun of it more than being serious.

Actually, some twitter is already speculating that Hakstol is in the hot seat.

Offer sheeting Connor McDavid is one of those you just have to imagine but it takes about one minute to realize that it has no basis in reality.

Yeah, but it''s fun to talk about. Like, 'How badly would Philly screw up McJesus' career? Would he still be a HOFer?'

Now that pending unrestricted free agent forward Alexander Radulov's divorce has been finalized contract talks are expected to heat up with the Montreal Canadiens.

Radulov was holding off negotiations so that his ex-wife would not be entitled to half of his next contract.
