Nice!
That puts an end to the nonsense rumors about those 2.

What numbers do you think they'll be wearing?

GKJ 07-27-2005 04:07 PM

17 and 18...just like they did in the 2003 preseason

Flyman 07-27-2005 04:57 PM

Maybe or Carter could end up wearing 9 like he did in World Juniors recently.

Diesel 07-27-2005 05:23 PM

Ruzicka isn't signed yet, is he? That kinda worries me.

he did that in 2003, and I don't think they got to choose, and I think someone else was wearing 7. He wore 7 in 2004. In 2003 Crosby wore 28 and 2004 he wore 9, so the first time around they might not get to choose

Flyman 07-27-2005 06:09 PM

Sharpie wears the #9...

Would you like to explain that?

Grant was an overage draft pick last year. He's and enforcer who is a big hitter and got more icetime this year because of his age. He played on a scoring line all year. How his skills translate to the AHL will remain to be seen, but he's a very good fighter. Better than Gratton IMO, but one would have to see him against equal competition to make that a decision. Definetly a top 3 fighter in the dub last year.

beerandcats 07-27-2005 06:52 PM

Great news....too bad I'll only get to see them once every three years here in Vancouver.

looks like Clarke is already playing mind games with carter adn richards, they arent entitled to any "A-player" rookie bonuses that go against the cap, he offered then a take it or leave it offer, luckily they both accepted it.

It wasn't lucky, if they went back into the draft the two would have received lower base salaries.

It was smart, and puts the Flyers in very good position.
