No, the money is absolutely terrible. As a Penguins fan, I loved Max, but I would hate Shero if he gave Talbot anything near that much.

Habs fan and I'll say, for one, dont really hate what the Flyers and Holmgren are doing... I'm sorry, but I don't think Mike Richards had what it takes to lead the Flyers to a Cup... you guys got exceptionnal talent in Jagr, great prospects and massive troll to Pittsburgh which is never a bad thing.

Hate the Flyers, and I will continue to hate them next season even with all the new players because I know they will still be a very strong team.

I'm amazed at how many of you clearly don't like this guy at all. I don't like the term but he's a gritty dude. Holmstrom won't be happy though. I'd rather have talbot than carbomb

I fully expect the next two headlines to be: "Flyers Convince Lemieux to sell team, and come out of retirement"

"Ed Snider purchases Penguins, delegates them to the AHL"

Would be fine with that at 3 years and a cap hit <1.5 mil.

What's going on here though?

it's 1.8.

That is the going rate for a good fringe third line/forth line grinder. It's a fair deal IMO

The term is the issue. Much rather a 3 year deal at the same 1.8 annual cap hit, but that's the way she goes.

Talbot is a great character guy, great teammate, and I really liked him from the HBO 24/7 series, but I just can't see 1.8M for him for the next five years. I thought we could go after madden or eaves for cheaper or around the same price.

This is the craziest off-season I've experienced as a Flyer fan.

So, is Homer really pissed that Asham signed with Pitt? Is today his revenge?

Of all the Flyers' moves today, the Talbot signing makes the most sense. He lacks size but is a pain to play against and kills penalties.
haters gonna hate.

And yes, Talbot deserves 700k more than Shelley.

Who in their right minds signs a bottom 6 forward to a 5-year deal?

Talbot is a dime a dozen player.

It's getting harder to like this team all the time.

It's like Holmgren said "alright we don't go after Brad Richard/Stamkos, let's sign everybody else!".

That's assuming Shelley deserves his contract, in which he doesn't.

Powe is getting a new contract himself, but centers have much more value, Powe wasn't a center he was a winger who took draws because Blair Betts could not.
