[b]Randy Jones will get re-signed for $1.3 mill multi-yr deal.[/b]
[b]I predict Hatcher, Smith and Modry all off the books come next season.[/b] With Hatcher retiring/buyout and Smith/Modry leaving as FA's. Big Hatch does have 1 more yr left on his 3.5m contract, but I will go on a limb and point at Rathje to compare. Youngsters Parent and Kuks both played solid in t...
[b]The gunslinger strikes again.[/b] In typical Paul Holmgren style, the Flyers acquired defender Danny Syvret from the Oilers for center Ryan Potulny. Hockey is business and this trade was about each team believing that they traded-up to what they think could potentially pay off most for them in the future.

There is a light at the end of the tunnel!
Everyone knows that Rounds 1 and 2 produce the most NHL caliber players.

#63 Kings -Robert Czarnik (c)
#66 Islanders - David Toews (c)
#67 Flyers - Marc-Andre Bourdon (d)
#72 Islanders - Jyri Niemi (d)
With the coming of Eminger, I do not expect the Flyers to land a Campbell, Liles or Roszival type UFA. As much as I'd like to think we could get an RFA like Boumeester, I dont see us signing anyone over 3mill.
UFA [b]Joe DiPenta[/b] - age 26, 6'4", 220lbs. Shoots Right.

Many Flyers fans who watched all of the free agent and trade craziness in the last few days are scratching their heads wondering why the Flyers have only made a handful of relatively minor moves.
The answer is...Addition thru Subtraction !

I'll be the first to admit that I've been slacking in the blog department.
My last [i]real[/i] blog was back in July, "Addition thru Subtraction"
Having an 8 month old baby might have something to do with it =)

[b]Timonen : A+[/b]
[i]6.3 mill/yr - signed thru 2012/13[/i]
Kimmo is this generations Mark Howe. If he stays healthy, he will outperform his stellar 07-08 season by 10 points. So far this season Timonen leads all Flyers defenders with 28 pts in 42 games (.67ppg). Those numbers rank him 13th overall in the league, keeping stride with elite players like Lidstrom, Campbe...
Bruins vs Panthers = Bruins in 6
Devils vs Rangers = Devils in 5
Caps vs Canes = Caps in 5
Flyers vs Penguins = Flyers in 7 (Yens vs Yoos = YOOS WIN!)
Bruins vs Flyers = Flyers in 6
Devils vs Caps = Caps in 7
OK, I know the playoffs are around the corner and everyone is all hyped up about that. However, I already gave my playoff picks a couple weeks ago, and,,,, I figure now is as good a time as any to look ahead and give my 2 cents for next seasons lineup, since my predictions came very close last time.
Heres whats gunna happen, and, yes, you can quote me this, cuz its mon...
