man i would have loved to have signed Bobby Butler. that would have been sweet. But I can live with him going to Ottawa. Had he signed with Pittsburgh I would have been very dissapointed and pissed off.

It seems like Eriksson himself really wants to come over and get his shot. I like that he's excited to get himself over here, but the last thing I want is to rush him.

Well hopefully someone can talk to Eriksson about what the plan is for him. There is no need to rush him. He will get his shot. Just need to remind him that its a process. No need to rush things. Send him to the SEL next season and see what he can do.

Well according to Euro Flyer, Eriksson turned down Brynas's offer to play for them next season... He doesnt know why though. He does think Eriksson REALLY wants to play in NA next season though.

Should be interesting.

Didn't he also say that another SEL team offered him more money than Brynas?

He only said this:

Quote:
I could see Färjestad giving him a better offer. I think he could stay in Leksand only if they go up. Doesn't look good for them
Quote:
It would just be weird if he suddenly changed his mind like that. Everything he's said so far has been in favor of Brynäs.

If he wants to come over that badly, then let him play. It's not like the SEL and AHL are worlds apart.

České Budějovice did not extend Jakub Kovář's contract thus making him a free agent.

Interesting.

I'd rather have whoever doesn't get one of the Phantom goalie spots than Kovar in the ECHL. Hutton(I think they'll sign him, I hope they do at least), DeSerres(if they sign him, I think they will b/c he has stepped it up since being traded to Brandon), Riopel, and possibly Backlund will be fighting for 2 spots.

I really wish he would go to the SEL for a year or 2
In the Season Ticket Holder meeting thread it was reported that they were going to leave Eriksson in Europe for a while longer, or at least not bring him to the Flyers.

Yea, we were just posting a comments that one of the Euro prospect watchers posted. Eriksson keeps saying he wants to play in NA, and even turned down a Bynas offer. There are some though saying he just wants to play for another team. No one knows really.

Euroflyers' put on Twitter that we've signed Erik Gustafsson and he'll be with the Phantoms for Fridays game. Didn't see anything official yet though.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...php?pid=107692

Found a bit more on it;

http://www.uppermichiganssource.com/...aspx?id=436989

Quote:
Junior Erik Gustafsson will forgo his senior season at Northern. He signed with the Philadelpiha Flyers March 29th and was assigned to the Adirondack Phantoms of the American Hockey League. Gustafsson played in 123 games for Northern from 2007-2010 scoring 7 goals, 86 assists for 93 points. The Kvissleby, Sweden native was whistled for 48 career penalty minutes as well. He earned All-CCHA Rookie team in 2007-2008. In his sophomore year, Gustafsson was named to the CCHA all-conference first team. Named the CCHA Best Offensive Defenseman and named to the Reebok/ACHA Division I Ice Hockey All-America West second team. This season Gustafsson was again named to the CCHA All-Conference team.

By the way. It looks like Eriksson is staying in SEL. Bertilsson is definitely staying.

Popov

euroflyers
This from a Russian source:"I was told Popov is 99% a flyer as his KHL contract is run out and the Flyers signed him, just waiting for May."

Gustafsson

euroflyers
"I can barely believe that little ******* has gone this far!" The joy of Marita Gustafsson, Erik's mother, on Erik's signing with the Flyers

euroflyers
Gustafsson was named the CCHA Best Offensive Defenseman last season, (34 pts in 40 games). 32 pts in 39 games this season.

Looks like Homer is expecting a lot of turnover next season.

If EuroFlyers is correct on Popov, he'll be one to keep an eye on.

seems like there is going to be a lot of turnover on the Phantoms, plus the lack of draft picks for the up coming draft.

You know how we've focused on older prospects in recent drafts?

I highly doubt we do that again for a couple years. We're going to go pretty young in the draft this year with what picks we do have.

Popov really interests me. His numbers are nasty last season, and we've been hearing for a long time how much skill the guy has. I'm really excited to finally see him play

Popov could be the guy to come in and win a spot on the Flyers. Esepcially if one of Hartnell/Briere are traded

Added a bio for Gustafsson.

Also, the Flyers signed RW Mario Valery-Trabucco and Chris Clackson(brother to Matt) to tryout contracts with the Phantoms a few days ago, didn't see this anywhere.

Quote:
– With all the injuries, the Phantoms signed Matt Clackson’s brother, Chris, and Union forward Mario Valery-Trabucco to amatuer tryout contracts. Chris Clackson, like Matt, played at Western Michigan University. He scored 19 goals in 129 games, or 15 more than his brother. Valery-Trabucco scored 23 goals and had 22 assists in 38 games with Union this season.
http://www.poststar.com/app/blogs/?cat=784

Here their stats, looks like Valery-Trabucco is a scorer and Clackson is a scrapper like his brother.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=97857

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p....php?pid=81069

These two signings apparently stemmed from the fact that Bourdon and Matt Clackson are both our for 2 weeks, and Beaulieu and Stephenson are both banged up. Added temporary bios for these two.
