Good deal. It was only his play on the ice that was valuable to the flyers last year. His entire work ethic was a fantastic boost for the team. Hartnell being a 30+ goal scorer again was also fantastic
According to Al Alven, who I'd never heard of until now. If it was someone more reputable, I'd put it as official, but I'll leave it as a rumor for now. It was on his Facebook.
Al Alven used to write for this website, actually.
Bill Meltzer commented the other day about how other Flyers told management that they felt it was important that Jagr came back. I felt it was 70/30 he'd be back. Others felt this would get done by the draft
I can't stand the guy but he's still a good depth player and 3 million is fair. He also seems to have a lot of chemistry with Giroux. I guess it's hard to not have chemistry with a player like Giroux though.
I say his production increases this year to around 60 pts . He will be more re-adjusted back to the NHL games as well as his supporting cast around him are all trending up in their careers production wise.
