Patrick Thoresen comeback?

He wants to play in the NHL next season, and according to local media he's heading for Tampa Bay. But the Flyers don't want to let him go, there's still no answer about their plans.

Thoresen is worried he has to return to Russia. Sounds like the Flyers wanna put him back in the lineup, otherwise there's no reason to stop him from signing somewhere else. What do you think will happen?

Btw, OKT's doing great, he sends his regards

OKT has never done great. At anything.

We'll trade him, Shelley, and Walker to Tampa for Gagne.

Other than his long-term future with the Flyers and in our hearts, I suppose. Hope Europe treats him well.

I think we should put Leighton in there to help the numbers work out.

I'd like Thoresen back but we have no room for him so it isn't going to happen. How much longer do we have his rights for?

Another year. If there's no room for him, then let him go.

I'd like Thoresen back, but at the expense of having a certain unnamed poster reemerge, I'll pass, thank you very much.

By the way Wolfy, you'll have to thank OKT for fetching us Leino. It was very generous of him.

He was qualified and became a RFA after the 07/08 season. I think Euroflyers wrote that the Flyers allowed him to talk to other teams.

Until he reaches UFA age, 27. Or in other words, at the end of this season.

According to Thoresen's Russian agent, his client has decided to stay in Salavat Yulaev Ufa for another season.

Good for him. As much as a loved having pat on the team, for what he gave up for us against washington, he really can't help us at all. He doesn't have an offensive game in NA. Very good player everywhere else though, and he should make the most of being a star player elsewhere.

He's actually a pretty good player, and considering the lack of offensive talent in Adirondack, I'd argue he'd be one of the best forwards on the Phantoms. The only guys in the conversation would be Maroon, Nodl, Testwuide, and Legein.

Being the lead scorer in the Russian league I'd find it hard to trash Thoresen..

But he confirmed on tv today that he made a decision to stay in Russia, this couldn't remain a question any longer. He'll return to the NHL next year, as a UFA.

Seems he isn't happy with this decision...

From Euroflyers:

doesn't one have to be an established player to have a comeback?

I'm not sure why people are discrediting his great season in Russia. Noone is saying he is the next Forsberg. He is, however, a much improved hockey player that should some offensive positives that could possibly be a 2nd line player on a bad team / 3rd line energy player on a good team.
