Every single NHL team wants Sustr. It doesn't make to much of a difference to sign guys like this as he either waits for Sustr or they figure their out of it

Maybe Reads replacement? There were rumours that teams are interested in him.

I'll be happy if he turns into solid 4th liner who can play the PK. Anything more than that is just icing on the cake.

I thought one-way deal just meant his salary is the same whether he's in the NHL or the AHL? Wasn't Read's deal a one way deal too?

I highly doubt this guy is a 4th liner.

I was expecting him to look a lot smaller on the ice. He's either playing with a bunch of other midgets or he's not that small. Anyway, just look at TB, they have St. Louis, Conacher, and Tyler Johnson all in their lineup and playing well. I wouldn't worry too much about his size.

I'm not worried about his size. This is a low risk signing. If he turns out to be a 4th liner that's fine. If he turns out to be another Read that's even better.

Anything above that would just be a positive surprise.

Signing players isn't as easy as hitting the "A" button and offering them a contract. GMs have to go through agents who are trying to get the best deal for their client. A player of Sustr's caliber (I'm assuming you're talking about him) is going to wait as long as he can until the best offer comes around.

I'm pretty sure McGinn would be the one to replace him if he were traded. I think Flanagan still has some time before he's a regular with the Flyers. I hope he proves me wrong though.

Anyway I like the signing. Seems like a smart hockey player. Good to see Homer adding to our prospect pool too.

Yes, because it's just that easy. Snap your fingers and a defenseman is signed and under contract

Yea I misunderstood what a 1way contract was. I thought he would have to go through waivers to get to the AHL. Making it likely that he would have stayed up.

Rats. That didn't work out well. Try it again.

little risk to this at all. gotta admit I never heard of him. Then again I dont see much ECAC hockey. like what I read in the write-up of him. ADK can use all the offense they can get. Still at 48 contracts for this season as well. Im keeping my fingers crossed on Sustr.

Sounds like another Jason Akeson. Great hands, playmaking skills but small and a subpar skater.

I'm thinking just a Phantoms guy. Only one year...I doubt they have big plans for this guy.

Really, did anyone read the Corey Perry interview in which he said he'd thought about playing close to home with Leafs, or close to London with Detroit, but opted to stay a Duck.
Homer might not have known it, but there was not point clearing room for Perry, he wasn't coming here anyway....

Do we have any reason to believe that the Flyers were targeting Perry? I mean, if he had reached UFA, I'm sure they would have made an offer--they make a play for most marquee free agents--but that's a bit different from actively clearing room.

I suspect they know that the big money investment has to be on the blue-line.

And we want Sustr who is at #8 on that list. Maybe we did pick a good one?

Maybe something like this for the lines next season as a possible base?

Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Read-Schenn-Simmonds
Gagne-Couturier-Flanagan
Rinaldo-Talbot-McGinn

Eh, should definitely wait till he plays in the AHL first. Testwuide was also highly ranked.

I don't even think I ever thought that Testwuide was going to be anything more than a 4th liner. From what this is saying, he may be small, but his skills are better than Testwuide's.

Nate Schmidt
Sustr
Hartzell

If we could grab any of those three I would be happy. Schmidt seems like he is a Flyers type player and Hartzell was invited to our camp.
