The Flyers' interest in controversial goalie Ray Emery does not bother the agent for Flyers goalie Marty Biron.
Gilles Lupien, Biron's agent, said on Tuesday that he knows how "the game is played" and how Emery's agent is "shopping" his client.
The bottom line, Lupien said, is that the Flyers say they want to sign Biron, "and Marty wants to stay with the Flyers."
Lupien said he was relatively confident Biron would sign with the Flyers, but that it "depends on the cap" and how much money the team is able to spend. He doesn't expect Biron to sign until around July 1, the day his client can become an unrestricted free agent.
"Marty's first option is Philly," said Lupien, who can't contact other teams about signing Biron until July 1.
Biron made $3.5 million this season; he had an up-and-down regular season but was solid in the playoffs.
From here, the view is still this: Re-sign Biron and upgrade the defense by adding Jay Bouwmeester and/or Mike Komisarek.
