I just hope Schenn can produce on the wing and Hartnell gets back in the game or else the elft leaves a lot to be desired. Compared to the right.

Amazing offense, but I really like

Wonder if they let a rookie who is cheaper play instead of Gagne.

Is Gagne definitely expected to re-sign?

All we can do now is welcome LeCavalier and look at how it makes our team better right now. I think there are still moves to be made though

I don't know why you guys complain about these? Top free agents are always going to command them. If he didn't have one the price tag would have been a lot higher than it is now.

If there's one thing this will guarantee, it's that the five on five offense, G's line in particular, will be a lot better. A full year of Gus and Streit will also help, but this is big.

I like the signing. I didn't like the idea at first, but for that money, it's a hell of a deal. 4.5 is what complimentary players are going to be making in a couple of seasons.

I literally just tweeted the same thing. If you didn't think you would see that, you are fooling yourself. Every team probably had it in their offers.

Because we need to stop giving those damn things out. Not a huge fan of this move. We need to keep some cap flexibility to resign our young kids.

Congrats. I'll say I Highly doubt you get 5 years of solid production, but I expect him to still be a decent 2C for at least 2 more years. I've also read you guys may want him to go to wing. I see no way Vinny playing as a serviceable winger, not enough speed or finesse at all for that role. He's a great face off man and should and will stay at center.

Good addition for the Flyers. I wish he signed with my Leafs.

Vinny is still reasonably young (at 33) and could be a force for you guys. Specially now if he plays with a chip on his shoulder for being bought out. I met Vinny when he was in Toronto with team Canada a few years back. The guy is a beast.

Fine with the contract, but I don't really get it. Although that Top 9 looks nasty.

Lecavalier as a 2nd line center at 4.5 ...thats a freakin steal.

He is one of the best 2nd line 2 way centers in the league, class act, and a leader.

I wish it was 4 years but 5 years is what it is.

zetterberg is a year younger and signed to 3 more years for 6 mill.
