Blair Betts

I believe he missed all season with an injury, but he was always a great PKer. Just 32 years old, think he'll get a contract?

No.

He was waived, Habs acquired him. Huge orgasm. He didn't pass his physicals got sent back and he should retire. If he's that hurt and he was pretty slow before the injury and now not playing for a while he'll probably be Laraque slow. Maybe even time distorting Jason Allison slow.

Definitely have interest in him for Buffalo for a PTO if he's healthy enough to partake in one. We still are looking for a bottom-six center and specifically need fourth line help. IF Betts is healthy, and that's a big if (no pun intended), then I'd offer him a PTO to see if he has anything left.

His body was really starting to break down, unfortunately.

Great team player and an awesome 4th liner/pk'er.

Injuries, particularly to his shoulder, have done a lot of damage during his career.

If he can stay healthy he can be a solid defensive center.

Used to be really valuable but it looks like it is over.

He was helping out on the ice with the Flyers coaches last year. He is done for the most part. Wouldn't mind seeing him help out the younger kids for the Phantoms for the Flyers if he wants to go the coaching route.

I remember him neutralizing the then good Montreal PP. I was very happy when he grabbed him last year. The rest is history, but if he gets healthy, he will be a valuable addition to a team with a bad PK.
