I find it humorous that the only people saying its too much for him are people outside of Philly that don't see him play every game. The Flyers board usually crucifies every deal Homer gives out but this one seems unanimous for the most part. It's one year at less than he's currently making. He's still a first pairing dman that plays in all situations and is good at both ends of the rink.

The Flyers would have needed to fill the void if Kimmo left. With Giroux, Couturier, Schenn, and Read all due for a raise after next season they couldnt afford to give anyone a long term deal that would eat up that money.
