The OLD NHL is back and the usual culprits are the reason why.
Noon Sunday was the beginning of the free agent signing period and the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers shelled out big cash to sign the guys they felt they needed to win the Cup….or more appropriately, just signed all the guys they could by throwing money at them.
The Flyers signed Daniel Briere to an EIGHT YEAR, $52 million deal.
The Rangers signed Scott Gomez to a SEVEN YEAR, $51.5 million deal.
And then signed Chris Drury to a five year, $35.25 million deal.
HOW did this get so ridiculous and out of control so quickly all over again?!
