Don't worry about the salary cap. The Flyers don't, why should you. Just roll with it.

Sources at Tampere will say that Flyers have signed free agent defenceman Kurtis Foster who played for Tappara Tampere (my favourite Finnish team) during the lockout.

Should help your power-play, a needed right handness.

So dumb. I'm not even worried about the contract situation. I'm worried about the kid's development.

Having Laughton as the 4th line center could bring Talbot up to 3rd line wing and Rusty down to the 4th. Which is nice because we could use another top 9 forward like Talbot.

Probably means Mez isn't quite ready yet. Foster is an alright puck mover and PP d man, but he sucks defensively.

Over Gervais, yes.
I like Lilja quite a bit for what he brings at his price. I thought Mez and him worked fine last season.

Actually like that signing of Foster as long as it is a 1-year deal.
Could help the PP.

Pretty sure both have been back in the states for weeks now.

Read left the team a few weeks ago and Grossmann only played 8 games with his team

Lilja is not as bad as some people say here. He isn't flashing at all but for a 6th/7th d-man you can't ask for much more.

Was he in Edmonton last year ? A cannon from the point as a RHD could def give the PP a different look. Is he same guy that shattered his leg going into end boards few years ago ?

Good news. I would love to put Talbot on the third line to form a top notch shut down line with him Couts/Read and then put a natural center on the fourth line with Laughton (granted he performs well).

He was in Edmonton in 2010-11. Last yr he played for more then one team if I'm not mistaken. And yeah he broke his leg crashing into the boards but I don't remember when.

Was traded to Anaheim for Andy Sutton in the off-season.
During the season he was traded to the Devils and later to the Wild.

Also played with Mez in Tampa in 2009/10.

Well today at Vorhees Bryz, Leighton, Lilja, Coburn, Mez, Timonen, Hartnell, G, Read and Shelley were training...

So hopefully Mez is good to go, getting pretty excited now. Roll on the 19th!

You would think none but most likely around 5 or so for him to fill his 'role'

Why? He's a two way center with a defensive reputation. If you move him to the wing he loses a lot of his value.

so where do you play him? 4th line c spot?

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Briere - Simmonds
Fedetenko - Couturier - Read
Talbot - Laughton - Rinaldo/Sestito

??

That looks fine with the exception of Schenn at center instead of Briere.

Then next year either buy out Briere and have :

Hartnell - Giroux - Voracek
Schenn - Couturier - Simmonds
Talbot - Laughton- Read
Legitimate 4th pairing line

Why? If Wellwood plays like he did last year, that's going to be great, and Fedotenko is a legitimate NHL-er anyway. The only unknown is Laughton, but I'm sure he could play the role of a fourth line center. I don't know, I think that would make for an intriguing line.

Oh, and am I the only one really scared Simmonds is going to be a bust, and that last year was an exception?

By the time Laughton plays in the NHL Briere is long gone. At the very least long gone from a center position
