Recchi....we need to resign the guy
I was reading an article on canoe.ca not too long ago in which Bobby was talking about making further trades and signing unrestricted free agents once the season was over. In that article, Bob stated his priority was to resign Primeau, but that players like Therien, Zhamnov, and Recchi could look for work elsewhere. After last night's game against Ottawa, I think Recchi made a case that he should be definitely resigned too. The man is a gamer. He comes to play every night and last night, he stepped up in a game in which big bad tough guy Chris Neil took on the super heavyweight Radovan Somik. Recchi went at it with Bryan Smolinski and to be perfectly honest, he handed Smolinski's a$$ to him on a platter. Why would Bob want to let Recchi go? Recchi has been the consumate team player. I'd say that after last night's game, Mark did nothing but cement himself as a Flyer for life. Bob, even though Primeau needs to be resigned this offseason, you NEED to sign Recchi. Make the man retire as a Flyer and as one of the Flyer greats.

Clarke's priority in Primeau. That does not mean he will let Recchi and the others walk.

I don't know if it's the same article I read, but he didn't say anything about them looking elsewhere. All he said was Primeau was a priority and the others needed to be worked out as well.

he'll be back.

he wants to retire here and the Flyers will want him back. Recchi will agree to take less money to come back and finish his career here.

I agree with the statement : Recchi must stay. He has been the soul of this team for years.
He deserves to retire as a Flyer.

I'd still like to see Rex as captain too... Prims has BECOME a good captain though, but maybe he'll get his chance. Like to see him retire as a Flyers, and PLEASE win a cup as a Flyer ;)
