Eklund may be off with the 29 other NHL teams most of the time, but when it comes to the Flyers, he has a pretty good track record.

Eklund called it first and Holmgren lied about it.

A little pricey with the cap going down, but the Flyers don't really have any other good options. Timonen is a very solid defenceman.

I guess Timmo is as underrated as they come, huh. I'd have wanted him on my team if he were available this off-season, and it sucks the Flyers have extended him.

This is a good signing. A bit pricey, no doubt, but it wasn't like his previous cap-hit was any lower. Without Pronger, the Flyers needed that veteran #1 guy and he is that guy. He clearly had the leverage in the negotiations.

Timonen's a tremendous player but he's not worth 6 million per. Over-payment here for the Flyers.

Deals like this make Edler's contract look so much better.

He is a big part of Philly though.

Our wouldnt be able to function without him, and it is only a 1 year deal. Plus I wouldnt be surprised if the actual $ number is lower, as this is still kind of unofficial

So what moves are the Flyers going to do to stay under cap next year?

I'll just do this as a thought via CapGeek:

CAPGEEK.COM USER GENERATED ROSTER
My Custom Lineup
FORWARDS
Scott Hartnell ($4.750m) / Claude Giroux ($3.750m) / Danny Briere ($6.500m)
Wayne Simmonds ($3.975m) / Sean Couturier ($1.375m) / Jakub Voracek ($4.250m)
Tye McGinn ($0.775m) / Brayden Schenn ($3.110m) / Matt Read ($0.900m)
Tom Sestito ($0.675m) / Maxime Talbot ($1.750m) / Eric Wellwood ($0.650m)
Zac Rinaldo ($0.600m) /
DEFENSEMEN
Kimmo Timonen ($6.000m) / Luke Schenn ($3.600m)
Braydon Coburn ($4.500m) / Nicklas Grossmann ($3.500m)
Andrej Meszaros ($4.000m) / Erik Gustafsson ($0.900m)
Bruno Gervais ($0.825m) /
GOALTENDERS
Ilya Bryzgalov ($5.667m)
Chris Mason ($1.500m)
OTHER
Buyout: Oskars Bartulis ($0.100m)
Buried: Chris Pronger ($4.011m)
------
CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled with the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $64,862,381; BONUSES: $2,800,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,237,619

And the only real signing outside the Flyers would be Mason (and this would be just a thought). Plus, CapGeek can only do burying in the minors, no LTIR, so it includes Pronger's cap buried in the minors (so the Flyers would actually have more room than shown).

We have 90% of the team signed for next year and are under the cap.

Only RFAs are Sestito and Rinaldo who are cheap

Only UFAs are Fedotenko, Leighton, and Foster/Lilja.

We don't really have enough cap room for any big UFAs, but we have enough to sign a backup goalie and re-sign Sestito/Rinaldo and a depth forward or D man

He'll retire a Flyer a little later than expected then. A little pricey, but you can't have any real complaints.

That's why I have to laugh when Flyers fans say "No way that happens, Holmgren said so." The guy seems like a decent GM, and is never boring, but you cannot trust a word that comes out of his mouth.

Would have taken him back on Nashville in a heartbeat. Even at that price. Sometimes, getting the veteranship, leadership, and all other intangibles is worth a little overpayment.

Some posters in this topic prove how underrated player Kimmo Timonen is. He is not just a good puck-moving-defenceman, but also one of the best defensive players, who can blank the opposing 1st line day in day out. He is not overly physical, but he is like a pitbull, who is surprisingly strong and never gives up, and has excellent stick work defensively. Offensively he is also still very good, 6 points in 11 games. And currently he is the 5th in points for active defensemen on the career list. Also he is a good leader with almost 1000 NHL games + 300 other professional games of valuable experience under his belt. Maybe he has slowed down a little, as he is turning 38 next month, but still there's no way you could find a better dman with under 5 million dollars, as some people here would value him. Plus, it's only a one-year-deal, so what's the matter.

IMHO Kimmo got what he deserved.

And I guess the lockout brought him one more extra year for his career.

Good for Kimmo, was sort of hoping he'd return to where it all began (Nashville, not Finland), but you can't have everything.
