For those who asked…. Yann Danis' cap hit, if he makes it to the #NHL with the #Flyers would be $675,000.

Said in Emery's thread that we should be able to attract a good third goaltender. I've liked Yann Danis for a while. Great year with Oklahoma City

Another great sigining. He's an AHL superstar. Phantoms might finally get out of the basement.

Seriously, the Phantoms could be half decent this season.

There's the two-way goalie contract we've been looking for. Stays in the AHL but will be up if things really do go ******.

Pretty inspired signing really, small move, but a good one. Great AHL goalie who has shown he can play as an NHL backup if needed.

A couple days ago wasn't the word something like "Holmgren wanted to find a goalie by Friday and get the Giroux extension done as well."?

Well mission accomplished. Even got a 3rd stringer for goalie as well.

The Phantoms could actually make some noise. Keep McGinn and Akeson in ADK and possibly Raffl and then here you go:

Noebels - Flanagan - Akeson
McGinn - Cousins - Straka
Newbury - Holmstrom - Raffl
Bordson - Brown - Alderson
Johnston, Mangene, Mathers, etc.

Lauridsen - Alt
Manning - Eddy
Bourdon* - Konan
Lamarche, Hostetter, etc.

Danis
Heeter
Chubak

Nice!

Nice!
That D still looks pretty pedestrian. Hopefully Manning can bounce back, Lauridsen continues to improve and Lamarche makes a name for himself. The silver lining is that the team's best defensive prospects – Gostisbehere, Morin and Hägg – are improving their talents elsewhere at the moment.

Reverses that old adage: better never than Leighton.

For the first time in possibly 25 plus years I'm actually happy with our goaltending plan in the offseason. It is a weird feeling and I don't quite know how to react.

You called it. When I read I though, "I hope hes right" , and sure enough you were. Danis is a very good 3rd stringer IMHO.

Danis filled in pretty well IIRC when he had a shot with the Isles a few years ago. Glad to have him on the Phantoms.

That was 5 years ago. This year he didn't fare all that well in Edmonton in his 3 apperances.

I know most won't want to hear this, but quite honestly he's not much of an upgrade over Leighton (wouldn't shock me if he ended up on a one way deal in Hershey). Both are very good AHL goalies (both winning AHL goalie of the year), but neither have any business being in the NHL.

Homer has done a real good job this off season, props for filling a lot of our needs, and focusing on certain aspects we lacked.

Oh wow, time flies!

There is one major difference here though, I wouldn't have cared if Homer signed Leighton to be an AHL starter and emergency call-up. He signed Leighton to be a starter. If he signed MFL in the same fashion as he signed Danis, there would have been 0 backlash from any of us.

Agree with you 100%, but even if Leighton was brought back this season as the AHL starter I think most would be pretty darn upset that he was back in the organization.

Some players just camp make the jump but at least Danis has respectable NHL numbers (.910 SV% in 53GP).
