If Knuble will come back for $2-2.2M, that would be awesome.

I hope Knuble sticks around otherwise the term Knubling may go useless.

All joking aside, I hope he sticks around, he puts up a lot and I agree with the posts that a lot goes unnoticed, he's a solid veteran and as much as everyone busts on him he should continue wearing orange and black.

Obviously that hack Hartnell can't.......

Everyone's favvorite Pinnaccio on Knuble:

I really hope that the Flyers don't just jettison Mike Knuble outahere come December or January when they try to figure out their salary cap puzzle when first, Randy Jones, then Ryan Parent, return. Knuble's salary would almost clear space for both those players, who total $3.6+ million.

Knuble does so much for this hockey club. I love how he stands in the way and digs for pucks in the crease. I love his instincts. I love his candor. And much like Derian Hatcher and Kimmo Timonen, he is one of the brightest minds around. You can talk to Knuble pretty much about any subject.

I asked Knuble late last night after he had scored 2 goals in the Flyers' 4-3 win over Dallas how all these rumbling are affecting him and he said, they weren't, because he was focused on making himself a valuable asset to the Flyers. His attitude is, if he can be worth something more, then losing him because a liability to the club.

Guys like Knuble, who is 36 and been around a few years, are needed on growing clubs like the Flyers, who have had 6 rookies make their NHL debut this season. Guys like Knuble are needed to help steer the young, "Downtown Philly Clan" of Scottie Upshall, Joffrey Lupul, Mike Richards and Scott Hartnell.

“You can’t have a bunch of 22 and 25-year-olds running around here," he told me. "You need a bunch of older guys and you need to be a good influence, on and off the ice. I hope I am showing everybody the way to do things.”

I hope Paul Holmgren is reading the daily clips about what people are saying about Knuble and what he brings to a team. Guys like Knuble mean a whole lot more to teams in the dressing room than people often given them credit for.

Ask Ken Hitchcock why he kept Brian Skrudland, Craig Ludwig and Mike Keane around when the Dallas Stars won the Cup in '99. Knuble is of their ilk - and he won a Cup with Detroit, too.

i agree in this case. knuble is a great influence on the young guys on the team and despite looking lost at times, he still somehow manages to score almost 30 goals. if the cap hit is 2 mil or lower and for a short term, i'm all for it. unfortunately, that means lupul is likely gone at the end of the season.

If knubs is back, then lupul should be moved so we have room for giroux and JvR

just remember that Smith was also in contract negotiations with Homer for the better part of last year, and where is he now?

Don't you want to see JVR and Giroux at some point, next season?

I do not see Jones, Knuble and maybe Lupul on this team next year.

I am fine with one more trade this season in the end of the season. For Peca.

Off season move: If Flyers can sign two players like Boucher and Grier. I am fine with it.

Man-crush aside, I think Tim's right.

JVR/Giroux are more like Lupul than Knuble. He's valuable in his role - and more importantly - knows what his role is.
