Thing is with Bartulis and OKT, Bartulis may be ahead on the depth chart, but Bartulis will be the one to go back to the Phantoms. I'd rather they do that than waive OKT unless they were to have another replacement for him.

Syvret? He has shown during his second run, that he can be a pretty good 5/6 guy.

Not a bad move.... how much did he cost us?

That 3rd paring is just really bad.

Just to be clear, he's officially one of the "50 contracts" now right?

Yea he counts as one of the 50. I actually like this signing. Not sure why, but I always liked Krajicek when he was with Vancouver.

The other guy the Flyers were looking at was Fedor Tyutin that year.

I'd seen Krajicek play for Peterborough, he was always a good player. He could help us if he's in shape. A better 6/7 option than Tollefsen or Syvret, pending Parent's return. Bartulis is staying the lineup, imho, as long as he wants to.

This seems like a good signing for a bottom pairing guy. At this point I have little faith in Parent to get and stay healthy. Plus I think he's a better option than OKT, so this should work. Thought I'm not a huge fan of being at the 50 contract limit.

Yeah, I'm kind of eager to see how this turns out because it's essentially a deadline move, but they give up nothing. Players struggle, nothing a bit a good coaching can't fix if he's good enough. I always felt he was solid but unspectacular for Vancouver.

I don't know much about him so I'm going to reserve my judgment on this deal. However, I wonder if that means that OKT is injured again. I didn't see it but people in the GDT remarked something about it. OKT returned to the ice though, so I did not give much heed.

Could just be a depth signing though, taking an additional defenceman on the road trip out to Alberta and Minnesota is probably a good idea. However, I'd really like to know the terms of the deal, especially whether it's a one-way or two-way deal, to know what we're going to do with Syvret and Parent when they get Healthy again.

Honestly, I don't think we see Parent again until towards the end of the season. They said six weeks recovery time for his back surgery, but I've got a funny feeling Holmgren is going to give Parent the "Briere" treatment from last year.

If playing Krajicek means OKT does not see the ice, we're better off for it. Fact is, Krajicek is an extremely effective defenseman who over the past four seasons, has averaged just over 18 minutes of ice time per game. That's exceptionally solid ice time for a true number 4. This should mean that Krajicek is going to be the number 5 guy and will probably be there for the rest of the year.

Honestly, this is a good guy who got the Matt Carle treatment in Tampa Bay. I compared Krajicek to Bret Hedican and that's a pretty fair assessment of what Lukas brings to the table. He'll be a real good fit here.

If you claim someone on waivers, isn't he half price? I can't remember. But I can say though, he's less prone to being so fragile haha.

That is only true for re-entry waivers. However, it doesn't apply anyway. Krajicek was released by Tampa and Holmgren signed him as a free agent.

Kraijcek is an NHL defender, like Jones is ... and both had to expensive contracts. He should be #5 on the current depth chart, behind Pronger, Timonen, Carle and Coburn. As long as Parent and Syvret are injured Bartulis stays in the lineup. Once they come back Bartulis goes to the Phantoms, Kraijcek and Syvret fight for the 6th spot and OKT becomes the #8.

Looking for another defenseman has been on the agenda for a long time, even I can see the need, blueline getting very thin. Not exactly news.

Not sure if OKT will play against the Flames, he blocked a shot and was in pain, if there's swelling he'll be out. But he stays in the lineup if he's healthy, otherwise the Flyers will lose him to the Norwegian olympic team. The coach there has already tried to pull him out, before Syvret was injured. He has the right to do so if OKT isn't playing, but OKT refused. If the Flyers bench him again he'll probably leave for a few weeks and play for the olympic team. I'm pretty sure the same thing goes for Bartulis as well, if he's benched.

As long as homer doesn't do something stupid when syvret and parent get back, like trading one of our bottom 6 so he can keep his glut of average Dmen.

Lightning and Canucks fans ripped him apart on the main board. We'll see what he can do, but I am not that much excited.

Nevertheless, he can't be worse than OKT.

O know it's OT but I have a question.

I placed 1 bet on the Flyers-Islanders game and went all-in Philly.

I've had 1139 vCash points and now I have 50?

When I was in school I learned 50<1139, so what happened?

The league was sure that disallowing a goal and giving the opposing team a powerplay right afterward would result in a come from behind victory over the Flyers.

Trust me, they're just as shocked as you are.

Can we just waive OKT already so he can go back to Norway to play pee wee hockey. We would have never signed Krajieck if OKT was reliable.
