Hotter than last summer’s debates between Priceians and Halakites.
Hotter than HIO readers when they see posts about the Bruins.
But not hotter than negotiations will be when a couple of big contracts expire.
We’re talking about the cornerstones of the franchise, Carey Price and P.K. Subban.
Each is signed through the impending 2011-’12 season.
And then …
If they play to their potential this season (and the team is toast if they don’t), Pierre Gauthier and the players’ agents will be negotiating mega numbers.
How much and for how long?
That’s today’s topic of debate.
And if you’re in our fair city, don’t do anything too strenuous (as if …) and drink plenty of liquids.
To get discussions started, here’s a good piece 24 Cups found about the Flyers and their contract mess.

• Frankie the Bull is not ready to hang ‘em up
• Goaltending is set around the league
