Filppula Appreciation Thread

Maybe not a regular season maverick, and his cap hit was obviously too high, but he really gave it all here. Came to play in the playoffs.

Good luck to Flip!

Meh. He was never an anchor, but never one of my favorites either.

Going to miss Filppula, think he was solid here, had a good run, and was def a big part of those deep playoff runs. Flyers def got themselves an upgrade. Good luck!

Thanks to him for everything he did, and good luck to him. However, was never a fan and am glad to see him go.

He kinda falled off. I wish he can find his game again in Philly.

He was exactly what we needed when he first came. And he was good enough this year that this deal was possible.

All the best to him.

I saw him as Prospal 2.0
Good season followed by mediocre.

Did his job most of the time.

He wasn't the best in the world but he had a great season once he got here and I can respect the fact that he always did what was asked of him. I'd like to say I wish I had more appreciation outside the loss of his cap hit. Best of luck in Philadelphia

Lets see if there's a sudden drop in the audience. Particularly among the women.

Was never sure why the sex appeal of Flip. Always looked like... well, a Finnish boy to me. Hair was weird. But, I am a male, so I guess I can't speak to that.

Anyway. Like DFC said, he was exactly what we needed when he first got here. Defensive responsibility. I think his hands have gotten worse over the years though.

He was a solid player, but his skills are diminishing. Kinda strange that philly signed him.

Loved his first year here and his playoffs but still a frustrating enigma otherwise. So much skill that wasn't always tapped. Thanks though, Flip.

Not enough can be said about how important he was to helping this team get by its first year without Vinny. He took Vinny's old spot and ran with it that first year.

However, last year he was godaweful and he was on the decline even if he played well this year.

Thanks Flipper.
