Its Eklund, so not too sure.

Flyers have extended Kimo Timonen for a year (per a teammate)

February 6, evening:

Quote:
Per one of the Flyers players and now confirmed by a high-level team source, the team has given defenseman Kimmo Timonen a one-year contract extension. The four-time NHL All Star is still the Flyers' most important defenseman and would have been the top remaining name on the UFA defense market this summer.

Timonen is making a salary of $3 million this season but the cap hit is $6.33 million because it's the final year of the six-year contract he signed in 2007 after coming over from Nashville. The new deal is for $6 million.

The Flyers are close to re-signing veteran defenseman Kimmo Timonen to a one-year, $6 million contract extension, according to league sources.

An announcement is expected before the end of the week.

Timonen is in the final year of a six-year, $37.8 million contract which had a $6.33 million cap hit.

The new deal would obviously assure the soon-to-be 38-year-old remains the Flyers' highest-paid blueliner.

“We have had talks but nothing is in place,” general manager Paul Holmgren told CSNPhilly.com on Wednesday night.

Hockeybuzz.com reported that the deal is done and worth $6 million.

Confirmed:

Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers have agreed to terms with D Kimmo Timonen on a one-year contract extension, according to general manager Paul Holmgren. The extension keeps Timonen with the Flyers through the 2013-14 season.

“We are pleased to announce that we have signed Kimmo Timonen to a one-year contract extension,” Holmgren said. “Kimmo’s presence on the ice for us and in our locker room is invaluable. We look forward to him continuing his all-around play for us.”

Timonen, 37 (3/18/1975), is currently in his 14th NHL season and his sixth with the Flyers. He was acquired along with Scott Hartnell in a trade with Nashville on June 18, 2007 in exchange for a first-round pick in that year’s draft. Over the course of 407 games with the Flyers, Timonen has posted 211 points on 28 goals and 183 assists, and has gathered a plus-38 rating along with 244 penalty minutes.

@wilsonecho91 @Eklund @jsaquella Retains his NMC. Even if he didn't, he was going to finish his NHL career as a Flyer.

Eklund is usually good with Flyer rumors, with other teams though, not so much.

I thought he was going to retire - That'd be great if he signed another year.

This is necessary.

Last night showed how vital he is to the team. I hope he retires a Flyer

I have no doubt Kimmo gave us a discount, but even at "fair market value", you resign the guy. He's been this generation's Eric Desjardins and deserves to retire (whenever he so chooses) in orange and black.

And now we have this. Again conflicting reports.

If it's true, I'm not against it (if it's cap friendly) but I still think they should have waited

what was the rush?

So we have Eklund who makes things up and Holmgren who lies. Who do we believe?

I think he waits out the year. If we can finish with a championship I think he retires. If we fall short I think he gives it another shot and he's earned the right to retire on his own terms

In Kimmo the Flyers are getting a solidifying and calming force on the defensive end. It's a very solid signing for the team. Well done.
Well let's see how this plays out.

This should be interesting... Eklund versus Holmgren in a minor skirmish for credibility.

Prediction: Going to go out on a limb and say Eklund is right and Holmgren twists it to say that it hadn't been officially completed at the time of tweet.

I think you're right. Eklund sounds very confident.

Holmgren immediately rescinded the contract offer to spite Eklund.
