Cory Stillman

Has he signed with anyone this past offseason? I know Tampa Bay didn't offer arbitration or sign him to a qualifying offer, so he's an unrestricted free agent. I think he'd be a very good fit for the Orange and Black. His defensive game is underrated and he plays a great offensive game. He'd pick up some of the slack that was left by not signing Recchi and if Zhamnov goes elsewhere.

I don't know that we would have room for him, unless he can play defense

Totally agree here. With a low cap number and the season being cancelled, the Flyers currently have the luxury of bringing in Richards and Carter to the NHL at the same time, if they so choose. They also already have Roenick, Primeau, Sharp and Handzus who can already play center.

The Flyers are thin at RW, bringing in Stillman (or any other center) could bump Roenick over to RW. I'd like to see Zhamnov brought back, but that failing Stillman would be a nice addition.

Isn't Stillman a LW/RW?

Stillman can actually play all 3 foward positions. He was a center when he played in Calgary.

Hey, if we can make room for players like Somik, Brashear, Fedoruk and Stevenson, then we should have no problem making room for someone like Stillman. At least he can play the game, unlike those four I've mentioned.

All the more reason to sign him. Either put him or Roenick at RW. If Amonte is bought out, the Flyers RWs are: Radio, Knuble, Stevenson, and Kapenen/Somik. Color me unimpressed, although that's not as bad as I first thought it was. Still, I don't see a reason not to add Stillman (assuming Zhamnov isn't re-signed), other than potential salary demands.

I think Roenick and Sharp will both be RW's when the NHL starts playing again. Add to that Radio and Stevenson, and we are pretty well set at RW. This does not even included Kapanen, Knuble, or Somik. With Gagne, Knuble, Kapanen, and Brashear at RW, I think we are pretty well set. Somik and Fedoruk are then extras.

Yeah, I thought the Flyers were thin at RW as well. Because I thought that LeClair, Amonte, Gagne, Kapanen, Knuble and Brashear are all LW's. The only RWs I could think of are Radovoijevic and Stevenson. Maybe Roenick if Zhamnov is re-signed.

For what it's worth, here are the lines I use in my hockey game for the PS2, given that Zhamnov is not resigned, and Leclair and Amonte are bought out

Gagne-Carter-Roenick
Richards-Primeau-Radovoijevic
Knuble-Handzus-Kapanen
Brashear-Sharp-Stevenson

I don't see where he could fit in

I think you have the right 12 forwards, but the question will be how the lines really work out.

I wouldn't mind him on our team, but like the rest of you, not sure where he would fit.

no room for Stillman? C'mon, I could think of at least four players who could be bumped from the line up to accomodate a player of Stillman's worth.

I'm sorry, but I'd have Stillman start over Kapanen, Brashear, Radivojevic, Stevenson, and Knuble. Stillman would be a top six forward on this team. If we can't find room on the team for him, then there's something really wrong.

Agree that Stillman would be a good, and affordable fit on this team. He had his best year as a RW in Tampa and is somewhat of a less physical Recchi (i.e. very good playmaker from the RW position and will pop in some goals (25G 55A) I would set up my lines this way assuming LeClair and Amonte are gone and Richards and Carter make the team Not sure of Roenick's status

Gagne Carter Stillman
Knuble Handzus Roenick/Rado
Kapanen Primeau Rado/Sharp
Brash/Stevenson Richards Sharp/Somik

Umberger and Eager would be the first called up if an injury occurs and will move into the lineup the following year in place of Roenick/Kapanen/Brashear. Stillman would also be able to move around if some of the younger guys dont step up. I think placing Carter between Gagne and Stillman would ease his transition to the NHL, and Stillman's passing skills will help Gagne Also, Richards definitely has the potential to be much more than a 4th line center, but I think to ease him into the NHL, he seems to have the grit, faceoff and defensive skills to be the perfect 4th line center in his rookie year

Knuble has to be higher on the depth chart than Stillman would be.

Admittedly, I am not a huge Flyers fan, and I don't really know how your prospects will fit into the lineup when play resumes, but after being a Lightning season ticket holder last year, Stillman is definitely not a first line forward at any position. He can play all three postions and did last season, he will be a consistent 50 pt guy, and does play solid D, he has good leadership skills and would be a nice 2nd/3rd line forward to help guide your young guys, but only if the price is right.

Wouldn't the natural thing to do to move Kapanen to his best position on RW?

He's already at RW. Roenick/Stillman, Kapanen, Knuble, and Radio. Somik is useless and I'm not keeping a seat warm for Stevenson. It's not what's going to happen, but it's what I'd do.

Stevenson can play centre too, Somik has great energy, maybe he would work better on the left side?
Knuble also looks alot better on the left.

I wouldn't want Stevenson at center every night. Personally I don't really want him on the team, but he's there. I don't care for Somik's energy, he's a useless player, he doesn't do anything worth keeping a spot on the roster IMO. Knuble is listed as a RW according to the Flyers site.
