Honestly I'm surprised Voce was the odd man out when Richards and Carter showed up. I thought he was a pretty decent AHL player during the regular season, much better player than some of the goons we have on the team right now (though they obviously have their own place). Not much shot at the NHL, not on the Flyers anyway.

I believe Umberger would be in the NHL next year if it werent for Richards and Carter. I doubt Hitch would play quite that many rookies at the same time, not unless their maturity proves so great that he feels he has room for another project. Maybe he will see time as an injury call up on the fourth line to give him just a bit of experience. Ultimately he should be given much more icetime than that to really develop, so I think it will be another year in the AHL before he gets his big break.
