Also I am not sure if it's just me but I got the impression most all HF thought Vinny was not that great of a 2nd line center when he was with us but now that he was a free agent and signed he is being seen as a dream player for a team. Even for Flyer fans this was the case. I just find it kinda odd how quick opinions can change..

I don't feel good about this, it just feels odd and wrong, Vinny should have retired as a Tampa player

Not when it's a goaltender. Haven't even begun to mention their defense...

It's Philly. What's not to loathe?

Rumor has it that Coburn could be on his way out. He'd be a good fit on our blue line imo, but their defense is already crap as it is so I don't see how such a move would help them...

Does Holmgren really not pay attention?

Why does he think TB bought him out? For ***** and giggles? Because Yzerman secretly hates the Lightning fan base?

A full NMC on a 5 year contract. Oh well, good for Vinny anyway. Even though I'm gonna cringe a little every time I see him in that hideous orange.

Holmgren says: "**** cap room and the owner's money, we'll sign just about anyone to a long-term contract"

Clearly, lessons were not learned after the Briere and Bryzgalov deals.

This is not a good move for Philly. The media there is gonna skewer him on a stake after (my guess) 3 less than stellar games.

I was hoping he'd go to Dallas or maybe the Panthers where he could make an impact and have a good quality of life. Philly is not a competitor (currently) and they're hated by pretty much everybody. Including me.

Very bad decision IMO. Someone from Dallas says that money wasn't an issue, so hockey jesus only knows what Vinny was thinking.

The price isn't terrible for him if he can stay healthy. He was playing well before the Salo ankle breaker.

I thought he wanted to go to a contender.

Obviously the issue with them was their names starting with B.

Vinny has no B in his name so that wont be an issue -Holgrem

Is 8 available? Grossman is wearing it. Don't know if Vinny could buy it.

Sickening that he's gonna retire a flyer. Nobody is gonna trade for a 4.5 mil a year player who's hurt all the time who's career is slowing down quickly. Bad move for them. 4.5 for two years would have been worth it but for five years. I guess that's a win for VL.

Going to be tough to trade for him since he has a NMC. Unless he absolutely hates it there and requests a trade, he won't be going anywhere.

I still think Vinny might waive it to return to Tampa in a year.

I can see him taking a Modano Contract deal so he could Retire a Bolt.

Even if he plays out his whole contract in Phili, he'll only be 38. I could see him signing a 1-2 year deal down here to finish it off.

It's like having a girlfriend that leaves you to date Russell Brand. You know they're in for an awful time, but you have to let them figure out this mistake on their own.
