Awesome signing. Raffl has a very high ceiling. This contract, 2 years from now, will look silly.

Nice to have it done, but I would've paid quite a bit more to lock him up to a longer term deal.

Code:
Bill Meltzer ‏@billmeltzer 39 Min.

B. Schenn's ELC (signed w/ LA) had an odd structure with cap hit WAY higher than actual $. Probably complicates pricing his 2nd contract.

I don't really see how LA giving him millions of dollars in unattainable (basically fake) bonuses complicates anything.

All you have to do is look at his stats compared to Kadri and Stepan's when they signed their RFA deals last summer.

Good.

Kid earned it. It's short/long enough to make me happy we gave him multiple years, but not too many as this is just his rookie year. Could fall off.

Yup, he'll be a UFA when the contract is up.

Good signing and a pretty good shot he outperforms it. He looks better each game. If he wasn't so snake bitten early in the year he could have had 20 goals this year. He can play any forward spot. Gets thrown in at center and wins almost 58% of his draws as a first year player. Can PK. Great on the forecheck. Good puck control. Underrated passer. Good defensively. Great wheels. Wouldn't mind seeing what he could do on the PP next year. I think the goals will come.

I'm sure he wasn't going to give up any UFA years for $1.1M a year. I would've tried to get him to sign a 4-5 year deal for around $2.5M a year.

If he keeps playing the way he's been playing this year and doesn't take a hometown discount, he's gone in two years because some team will give him $4M+.

Excellent signing. This guy is going to be real good. First Couts and now Raffl congrats Homer!

Glad to see Raffl signed for at least 2 more years!!! At a good cap hit as well, the kid just keeps getting better and better

I'm so happy Raffl is resigned. The guy really deserves it and during the game I even thought "I really hope he gets a new contract soon". Read-Couturier-Raffl is such an awesome line.

The Flyers will need the cap space this summer that the Raffl deal gives them. $1.4 million is a lot when you also have to have Pronger on your initial roster.
