Wayne Simmonds signs 2-year deal; $1.75M AAV

"The Philadelphia Flyers and forward Wayne Simmonds have agreed on a multiyear deal, the team announced on Thursday.

Simmonds, 22, was a restricted free agent and part of Philadelphia's return in the deal that sent former captain Mike Richards to the Los Angeles Kings late last month.

One day previously, both sides said they were making progress.

Solid contract.
At least not another 1year short term contract like Voracek's - would have been difficult to resign them both next season without overpaying.

He will still be a RFA at the end of the contract so the years doesn't really bother me.

Great deal

One more year would have been nice, but then the cap hit would have gone up as well.

Solid signing and it should give us space to either add one more player before the season start or bank some cap space to improve later in the season (at least, I think we can do so...).

A steal at that number. Well done. And he is still a RFA after two years. Nice job.

WOW thats a discount i thought he'd get at least 2.5. Good Luck with him, he'll be a crowd favorite, and will be interesting to see when the Kings come to Philly in the middle of October
