So if 33 years of age is the new definition of old, someone better get Timonen and Briere a walking cane

I expected 7 dollars actually.
Holmgren with cap space scares me. Hell probably trade for nash and figure the space for everyone's raises will take care of itself in a couple years.

Not by hockey standards. Come onnnn, Jagr is 40 and you saw what he could do for most of the season.

Maybe he's anticipating the cap going down with the new CBA?

All Holmgren jokes aside, plan B probably is taking this point into account.

I like this move: low-budget, fills an important need, and an ex-Flyer to boot. What could go wrong????

I've always liked Feds. Even when he played for Tampa, Pens, Rangers..I've always like him. Just listened to his interview on NHL Power Play on Sirius, and now I like him even more! Super cool dude with a great head on his shoulders. His workhorse style of play and experience of winning 2 cups will be really big on the ice and in the locker room. I'm very happy we have him back!

I liked him when he was here the first time, I was 11 or 12 so forgive me for liking him because of this but I enjoyed his name haha. I believe he was on the team around the same time that the old Budweiser bubble hockey commercials were around and I got a kick out of them, so naturally "Rusty" was on of my favorite Flyers at the time.



Found Budweiser commercial!
