Opinions on Scott Mellanby

Maybe this is "Back to the Future-esque" but any thoughts on Scott Mellanby returning to the Flyers? Would you be in favor or against? I am not sure what he is asking for in terms of contract. Knuble's situation adds to the depth at RW. Amonte??

I will pass. We need to move towards a younger line up and he just does not add enough to justify the contract or roster spot. I would rather have Amonte by a big margin over Mellanby at this point.
The good news is, if signed and placed on a line with Zeus then Zeus would appear to be flying out there.

Mellanby would have been a decent thought, but with Knuble and Stevenson he's not needed.

I have always liked Mellanby's approach -- his spirit and intensity. I think he could play under Hitchcock's system and would become a fan favorite again. The signing of Stevenson and Knuble, however, limit the need of another RW.

If we bring back for Zhamnov (I predict we will)...JR will be on the right wing, we'll be fine. If not, there will be a gap that we could sign another wing to fill. While Scott Mellanby deserves to be admired for the type of hockey he's played over the last 20-ish years, i dont think i'd take him. Mellanby's health is too inconsistent, we've seen what old players who lack durability can do to a team.

We've got Stevenson and Knuble to play the grinding type of hockey; look at the names of the other people out there--Demitra, Murray, Palffy...even Kariya, Anson Carter, Peter Bondra...I think we're gonna need to pick up a solid goal scorer, and as the free agency period drags on these guys are gonna be cheaper to pick up.

time passes he is the reason dave hodge lost his job at cbc way back when.
mellanby scored a goal sent the game into OT Hodge griped on air about cbc going off to the news instead of showing the end of the game

Hodges demise was ron maclean and don cherry 's gain.
