I'm glad for Claude.
He has worked so hard for this and I am sure he will continue to put forth all efforts to help his team to be successful.
His parents Raymond and Nicole must be very proud, not to mention ecstatic.

Lāche pas la patate Claude !!!

Great. The Flyers have their own Favre!
Don't even joke about that.

I HATE Favre.




As to the last year of Roo's contract being at $5M; I posted earlier that exact concern... His next contract would have to spring off that amount and rise from there. Unless he fails to progress, I can't see him not getting more. Even if he goes to arbitration they would have to offer him a raise, and the NHL would most likely want to award him higher than the mandated raise, IMO... Best case he would be here one more year before cleaning up on another team unless the Flyers work out another contract.

The Flyers are not a team that allows their layers to reach arbitration and I would imagine that they will hammer out a deal with G, and I also imagine that it will tax their Cap situation... I also bet that they will work out a deal with Carter soon and he will spring off his present $5M. The longer the deal, the better the Cap would average out to be I'm sure... Do they go the Richards kind of deal? I think Homer has already stated that they want to go considerably shorter and allow the market to determine the next contract after that... That could mean a much larger Cap hit than they have with Richards dozen year one.

I hate the Cap... but not as much as I hate Favre.

I want to take this moment in time to personally thank the Rangers for finishing right behind the Flyers and snatching up Bob Sanguinetti with the #21 ahead of Clarke who was licking his chops in anticipation... Thus leaving the brain-trust to quickly change direction and settle for Giroux.

I cant believe we had Trevor Lewis ahead of anyone else in our draft spot. Thankfully the Rangers did us a favor(again) and took up Bob Sanguinetti. Not as bad as the Hugh Jessiman pick. but not good either.
good deal for Giroux. I admit I was a bit unsure of what he shoudl/would get but this seems like a fair deal for both sides.

He leads our team in +/-.

Honestly, if O'Donnell can give me 16+ minutes of solid hockey a night while leading the team in +/-, I'll call him Favre. Hell, I'll call him whatever the hell he wants.

That 38-year-old man, along with Andrej Meszaros, makes up our best offseason acquisition by a long-shot. I'm happy about Bobrovsky, Zherdev, Nodl playing up to par, and Wellwood's nice little surprise, but O'Donnell - Meszaros was well worth Gagne.

I grew watching Gagne. He was my favorite player for the longest time.

I can honestly tell you, while I personally like Gagne better, in terms of winning a championship, Meszaros - O'Donnell was a brilliant offseason pick-up.

I hope O'Donnell stays on another year, but I don't see him doing it.

This is great news ! Bet there are many teams that would love to have Girioux for that price.People pay money to see the type player he is play hockey, they also buy his jerseys and other gear.Excellent business deal all around in my opinion.

I hope O'Donnell stays on another year, but I don't see him doing it.

To be perfectly clear, my remark was in no way a slap at O'Donnell, rather a defense by not looking at his decision to stay as a Favre-esque one.

I agree with you about him and the importance so far of the solid third pairing... Even if his +/- doesn't end up in the top few of the Flyers, his solid play and large chunk of minutes per game has to pay dividends come the stretch and post season when the other two pairings are fresher and Pronger/Kimmo can kick in extra in key situations... plus there is no soft spot on defense any longer; make the opposition earn every goal in a hard manner.

... But I do think that the Flyers organization and the enjoyment that could be had there could very well allow him to change his mind on this being his last season... providing his health holds up and the team stays on the right track. There is nothing like playing on a solid contender with class teammates.

But who knows?... Right now I'm just enjoying his play and the play of the entire well coached team.

This is good, good length, good price.

Homer and G know that he's only going to continue to get better, so keep it short and give him another raise in 3 years.

I had all but decided to have my blank WC jersey customized to #28... but this pretty much assures me of three more seasons of use past this one. So, yeah, I'd agree with that statement -- although I really had little doubt that they wouldn't get a deal done... I had more faith in it than I do in getting Carter's done. But I do think that that will get done and unless Lieno wants too much I feel that Homer will strike a few year deal with him also.

Are these two sentences unrelated or is there something I don't know/forgot? In other words, is there something that relates Jessiman to the Flyers?

Yay! Great news. The price tag seems fair, not a steal but a solid deal. I was hoping for a little less though. Carter signed for a longer term at 5.75? It might be difficult to keep Leino, but we should be able to field a really strong team for the next couple of years nonetheless.

If for whatever reason we cant keep Leino, I hope we make the 3rd line a checking line and stack the top 2 lines. Handzus?

I agree. Great price for him, and it's not too long to give him the potential for a future raise if he keeps growing, which will hopefully keep him motivated (not like that's been an issue). I'm happy he's sticking around.

I almost got a Giroux jersey from one of the "fake" sites that a group of friends were ordering from....I held off. Kind of wish I did get it. I'll be getting one next order, though!

How much money Briere makes in his last year? Actual $ not cap hit.

In 2012-13 both Hartnell and Timonen will be in their last year. We may keep both for less.
Timo for less cuz of age, but Hartnell wont stay for less.
