How they were built: Flyers

Since I haven't been able to find this information all in one place before, I whipped up this chart showing the Flyers current roster, their contracts and how they were acquired by the team. I will update it from time to time as the Flyers make moves and create a direct link to it on the right side of the ATPS homepage.

The chart contains every Flyer who is under an NHL contract for the upcoming season.

Players with a NMC listed after their contract end date have a no-movement clause, which means the player can't be traded, waived or sent to the minors without consent. Players with a NTC listed after their contract end date have a no-trade clause, which means the player can't be traded without consent. Mike Richards will have a NTC kick in after the 2011/12 season.

Flyers acquired via:
Draft: 7
Free Agency: 9
Trade: 9
Waivers: 1

Notes:
All salaries are dollars against the cap, and are found at CapGeek.

Analysis:
It is interesting that the Flyers have acquired their forwards mostly through the draft and free agency, their defense mostly through trades and their goalies mostly through free agency. It really shows you how they utilize all possible ways of building a team, and it also shows their failings in developing NHL-ready defensemen and goalies in their farm system. Seriously, how many ex-Lightning defenseman do the Flyers need?

Most kids will groan at the sight of a plate of vegetables or fruit for a snack,
but how different their reaction is when they.
In conclusion, hydroponic and organic hydroponic gardening allow it to
be feasible to obtain much more pure and healthy environmental conditions.

If you have a vegetable garden that includes growing cabbage
and tomatoes, you can shred the tough stems in the garden shredder so they decompose quicker than normal.
