From what I understand his biggest asset is a big shot, right?

I'm sorry Flyers. Good guy in locker room and a HARD shot, but that's it. I hope you don't need him for too long and waive or something.

I've always thought Foster was a good player till his unfortunate serious injury that happened in San Jose a couple years ago.

He's still a good guy. Not the same player anymore though.

It's mediocre D-man signing day.

It's also his worst asset if you're standing in front of the net. The guy has no accuracy

It doesn't happen often, but KF is a big guy, and he occasionally destroys people. Makes you wonder why he doesn't do it more often.

He's a great guy, and has a big shot. Not a great d'man, but serviceable.

Good signing for Philly.

Late depth defenseman is key in a compressed schedule. Trend should continue today.

No one is as bad as they are made out to be on HF. Foster were among the better defenseman still on the UFA list, and with the injuries the Flyers have on the backend they need the depth. Good guy, hope he can get his career back on track.

Foster is atrocious. He's a well liked guy in the lockerroom but he's walking minus.

I've said what I've thought of this one all week too, just like the Hecht re-signing, so I won't repeat it.

All's I'll say is, it's an alright signing as long as the Flyers don't give him too much ES time.

Kurtis Foster is not a defenseman...he LITERALLY can not play defense.

most teams arent going to expect much out of your 6/7 defenseman. They are 6/7 defensman for a reason. they are flawed. This was a depth move for the Flyers and its a 1 year deal. Not sure why people are overreacting the way they are on this.

Just give it time. Hopefully, for the Flyers sake, they will pull him off the ice when they realize he's incapable of playing defense a lot quicker than the Devils did.

I see Philadelphia is aiming for that #1 draft pick this season.

If the Flyers play him the way the rangers played Bickel in the playoffs they might be OK.

He will touch the ice for the first week or two then after that he should be a regular in the AHL. our 3rd pairing is just a bit injured coming into the season.

You made the same dumb joke in the Boucher thread. So a young team who won a round in the payoffs last year are in contention for the worst team in the league because they acquired a #3 goaltender and a guy who will compete for #6 defenseman? Great post
