Flyers make 2 key signings hours apart

The Flyers made some noise today just before the playoffs begin on Thursday in New York.

First, they extended pending free agent, Andrew MacDonald to hefty new deal. Reportedly worth 30 million over a 6 year span. The 27-year old was set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

The second move made came just moments ago.

After speculation about him returning for his Senior year, Union defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, signed his entry-level contract with the Philadelphia Flyers. Gostisbehere will report to the Phantoms this coming weekend.

The signing comes a few days after Gostisbehere’s monster performance in the NCAA National Championship against Minnesota. Posting a +7, a goal and two assists in the 7-4 victory.

What are your thoughts on the signings Flyers fans? Overall positive?

Problems Front and Center for Vinny LeCavalier

One of the many high profile moves of the Flyers offseason was the signing of Vinny LeCavalier after he was bought out by the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, the 33 year-old center has been pretty bad this year year for the Flyers. What’s gone wrong? How bad is Vinny? Should the front office have seen this coming?

Is Steve Mason’s Extension the Right Move?

mason

Steve Mason signed a new deal with the Flyers to the tune of a 3 year 12 million dollar extension. I know Mason is a bit polarizing so I’d like to point everyone to an article Broad Street Hockey that does a great job of examining Mason’s value and what could be another blunder from the front office.

Here’s what we’re talking about:

  • The Flyers are probably done making big moves this summer. How did they come out? (00:00)
