He had a disappointing 2012-13 season, but he was fantastic last season and should command somewhere between $4.5m and $5.5m for 4-5 years. Still, I think we are still struggling to fill the offensive whole that left when JVR and Jagr were let go.
I have thought the same thing. I like Filppula's game a lot. I just think another team will be able to pay him more. The Flyers should definitely take a look at him if possible, though.
