Flyers Qualify Gustafsson, Lauridsen, Wellwood, Manning

Meaning Blake Kessel and Mitch Wahl were not given qualifying offers. Fine with me, those are the four I would have qualified.

With his injury, doubt he competes for a roster spot again. Gotta think it affects his speed.

Kudos to the organization that has done well for Wellwood.

However, he has a long road to recovery, will his cap hit affect flyers ceiling? (at least for the Summer, while he is on LTIR)

Sure but I hate to see guys get cut loose after an injury. At least he gets a chance to prove himself.

Yeah. I don't see why some people are so emo about it.

Kid played very well for us, played in some NHL games, got hurt in a gruesome way, and we're footing his medical bills for all intents and purposes.

Remember how all those kids of the main boards called the Flyers a classless organization for everything they did to poor Carter and Ilya "the victim" Bryzgalov?

It's little things like giving this kid who played his hardest for us another chance that really demonstrate the loyalty of this organization. I have no freaking issue with Wellwood signing here whatsoever. If you have an issue with it, you're pretty petty.



EDIT: On a side note, I haven't heard that Gus has fired Winter yet. That's making me nervous.

Meltzer says:

Quote:
The Flyers extended qualifying offers to restricted free agents Erik Gustafsson, Oliver Lauridsen, Brendan Manning and Eric Wellwood. They declined to extend to qualifying offers to forward Mitch Wahl and defenseman Blake Kessel, making both minor league players unrestricted free agents and removing them from the organization's crowded reserve list.

All the qualifying offers were expected. However, Wellwood's gruesome self-inflicted skate cut that severed tendons in his leg and will require at least nine months of recovery time creates some complications once he re-signs. National Hockey League teams are not allowed to waive/demote injured players down to the American Hockey League which means Philly will have to carry Wellwood and his $594,000 salary (assuming he accepts the qualifying offer) on their NHL roster and salary cap number until he's medically cleared.

Good, at least we've started free agency off on the right foot. Now I'm just waiting for homer to trip and fall on his face, give himself a concussion and start handing out 8 year, 7 mil per deals to guys over 35.

Agreed. I wouldve done the same.

What are the odds that Lauridsen makes the Flyers out of camp? Looked like he played pretty good when he was called up from the games i saw.

the flyers by and large take care of the players. Keith Jones and JR books, basically confirm that. The lone exception being dave babych who sued the team for "forcing" him to play with broken bones in his foot in the playoffs. It's the playoffs, think of your skate as a walking boot you nancy.

I still remember being shocked by his weight-gain during an injury when he was a Canuck.

I can add, he had an awesome WC, and this time I promise, it's Oliver and not his younger brother

While he may be the better player than Gervais, that doesn't mean he should be the 7th defenseman on the team. He needs more playing time to improve and he won't get that as the 7.
