Brian Boucher signs 2 year, $1.8 million (appx. $900k per year)

Boucher, Laperriere join Flyers; Knuble signs with Caps

The Flyers made a quick strike in the free-agent market Wednesday, signing goalie Brian Boucher and feisty right winger Ian "Lappy" Laperriere.

Boucher's two-year deal is believed to be for $1.85 million, a cap hit of $925,000 per season.

The Boosh is back.

Brian Boucher, one of the most popular, affable goaltenders to wear orange and black, has come home.

The Flyers signed the former San Jose Shark on Wednesday as free agency began. Boucher will back-up newcomer Ray Emery and earn $1.8 million over two years.
“I’m thrilled,” Boucher said. “I had a nice year in San Jose, but I’m happy to be back in Philly.”

Boucher, a 32-year-old native of Woonsocket, R.I., was a first-round pick by the Flyers in 1995 (22nd overall).

“He’s capable, he’s played a lot of NHL games, he has playoff experience,” said general manager Paul Holmgren. “And Brian is a guy who really wanted to come back here in the worst way.

“Even going back two years ago I think Brian is a lot better goalie now than when he left here. He’s more under control than he was [before here]. I thought he lost focus in the net a lot of times. He’s always been a real athletic goalie; very competitive.”

It gives us about $1.3 if we include a 13th forward or 7th defenseman at $0.850.

(Assuming Cote makes the team)

EDIT: Also, I bet they grab a C.

Gagne-Richards-Briere
Hartnell-Carter-Giroux
Powe-FA-Asham
Carcillo-AHL-Nodl

Coburn-Timonen
Pronger-Carle
Jones-Parent

Emery
Boucher

AHL includes Kalinski, Matsumoto and other Training Camp surprises.

He is signed for 900,000 this year. So that leaves like 3 million under the cap, if they want to spend to the limit.

He did this nine years ago. Holds the NHL record for consecutive shutouts. I say he's a vet.

I really cant believe this. We are goin into the season with Emery and Boucher.

I may not be the smartest hockey mind in the world, but I dont think those two win you a Stanley Cup.

For the price, I dont mind it for a backup. Let's just hope Emery pulls through.

When he actually smartens up and dumps Carle or Jones, we'll really have some nice space.

Someone who we could count on to step in if Emery falters.
