Any way you look at it, Pens are signing a good D-man.
What if they were going to sign Paul Martin who would have played tremendous, but with this trade they sign Hamhuis. What if Hamhuis doesn't live up to the ridiculous hype Flyers and Van fans have built onto this guy, and signs a huge contract, leaving Pens in a salary hole?
Now the Flyers have helped themselves, and hindered the Pens.
Hamhuis never played with us, so the rivalry business is moot.
You mean the hype built up by Nashville, Flyers fans who have seen him, and Van fans? Your not giving him enough credit. He is a very solid d-man. What if he signs for 4.5 mil a year? How about that? Anyway you look at it, we just helped the Pens out. They sign him for anything less then 5 mil a year, we lose the trade (if we dont draft a unknown superstar in the 3rd round).
