Is Kappy definitely coming back?

I know prior to last year he was contemplating retirement but ended up playing. Then he was injured most of the year and probably had the worst year he's had (the injuries obviously effected him). Is he definitely coming back next year? If he does I imagine this would definitely be his last year.

As I posted in another thread the Flyers have a lot of forwards that hustle but don't score much, Kappy being another one. Even though the new NHL should have suited his game tremendously, on most nights he was pretty invisible. It could have been the injuries and now that he's healed up (or on the mend) the outlook might be much better. He was always one of my favorite Flyers but he really seemed to fall off the cliff last year.

Any thoughts on Kappy and his role next year?

3rd line player. His finishing has dissappeared but he plays defense and controlls the power play.

How was it the worst year he has had? He had 34 points in 58 games which is easily his best offensive output since he came to Philly, with the injuries. He was a -9, but wasnt playing with Primeau and came back in the midst of the team's bad slump

He is obviously not what he used to be, but he is still a very useful 3rd liner or great 4th liner.

i like him a lot when he plays with primeau. if both can stay health that is a really good 3/4 line and i think that signifigantly improves our team next season.
