Pretty decent signing. Good 3rd/4th liner.

The best thing about this signing is, if things don't work out, we can always trade him for the 4th overall pick in next year's draft.

Looks that way. Talbot also is $1.75.

Good PKer and strong along the boards. Clutch in the playoffs too. Nice depth signing.

Not much to add, other than that I like the signing. He's a good player with experience, and for that amount of money I can't complain too much.

I like it.
A little pricey, but it's the one year the Flyers seem to have too much cap space, so whatever.

This is quite the offseason for you! Leighton extended, Carle gone.

could we really go into the season with 7 million in cap space?
I expected 7 dollars actually.

Solid signing, surprised Homer didn't just toss him an extra year.

I'd be fine with that. Briere would light it up again. Briere's first big chemistry partner was Prospal before that Leino kid showed up and stole the thunder.

I like it! A lot actually, been a fan of him since his first run with the team. Good signing for the bottom six. I hope this is pretty much the roster we go into the season with. No madness needed, Homer, please...

Just wondering if Fedotenko-Staal-Talbot was the shutdown line in the Pens cup run? Fedotenko-Couturier-Talbot could be the Flyers this year.

Rusty! A defensively responsible 3rd/4th line vet? I'm okay with this.

Same although for him I wouldn't have hated a 2yr deal. Maybe if all goes well he re ups. I love his game

Might be the best part of the deal. And I like it. Solid, defensively responsible bottom sixer who fits in nicely on the pk and brings a lot of playoff experience to a still fairly inexperienced team. He'll also chip in a few points here and there, even if it won't be as many as when he was in his prime. I don't mind it at all for a one-year contract. Also, all Flyers games will now be bobblehead nights.

It's just that crazy, really. Also, he might have gotten a few 100ks extra for taking a one-year deal.

Wasn't it Cooke-Staal-Kennedy? Wasn't that the year that Talbot somehow found his way onto Malkin's wing? Rusty on the other side, perhaps?

Fedotenko is something this team needs. A good responsible FORWARD that can play DEFENSE.

Blair Betts was a medical basket case......Fedotenko is old but hopefully not as fragile/broken down as Betts. He is just less fleet of foot these days...of course now that we got him he'll probably wind up on LTIR at some point ...

I really don't know how you are going to post anymore on here since all I remember you saying was how bad Carle was!
