if its at all possible to fit him under the cap he plays come march. he may not have had a season long grind in him but i think hes got enough left in the tank to give it one more run when it counts.

call me a conspiracy theorist but i think he and the team worked something out where hed go play some golf and rest those kneas up while they resolved the cap issue.

hes actually the exact type player the flyers need right now. big stay at home defensman, can lay the big hit, play solid minutes and kill penalties if needed. hes also a veteran presence on the blueline that will get on guys if they arent backchecking.

when your looking to add a character player for the playoffs big hatch is gonna be there giving every drop of blood sweat and cortizone hes got for one last chance at the cup.
