He wants three years. 5.5 million was rumored. I wouldn't mind him at 3 years, but much prefer him at 2. If he starts a bidding war for his services and a team offers 4, I would back out. I still really don't mind three because he started the NHL a little older than the usual but did play in Swiss league for a while before coming over. He started the rigors of the NHL at 27, so he may have some quality years ahead even at the age of 36-37-38. If we do attempt to sign him, it would almost guarantee though one of Coburn or Mez is gone.

Also I want to say predicting the Flyers lineup 3-4 years down the road is absolutely pointless. There is no way they don't make big trades or sign UFA's to improve their team. We always have and always will.
