Discussion in 'Philadelphia Flyers' started by Hollywood Couturier, Apr 29, 2020.
It will be a 1-year ELC contract, as it is the only type of contract he can sign.
He will not be waiver eligible until he plays 60 games.
If he does not play 80+ games he will be a group 6 UFA next summer.
45 minutes on what Sandin is like as a player, what he will bring:

*and yep, I have pretty much had this ready to go for 7 days or so... haha.
This that good good
Depth should be good if everyone is healthy.
Praise be to Chuck for keeping us entertained
They basically have their whole NHL+AHL fwd rosters in place for next year now...
Flyers have 22 guys under contract at fwd for 2020-21.
And that does not include O'Reilly and Willman with the Phantoms.
Aube-Kubel, Patrick, Lindblom and Vorobyev ONLY 4 guys who are RFAs. And 3/4 are sure-fire to be re-upped.
Kool & the Gang
man i dont think we will keep pitlick now. I loved pitlick
I really liked him too. But he is exactly the type of player you can't make a decision about with your heart.
Has he got any biceps?
If lindblom and Patrick return healthy it will be very interesting to see who ends up on the outs
I like him a lot but Laughton is an easy trade candidate
id rather have just kept pitlick tbh. We have no idea how sandin will be. I think nak's ascension made them think we don't need to resign pitlick. Pitlick and raffl are basically the same players (pitlick might have more motor but same thing really). NAK should be cheaper and obviously cost controlled. Either way, with lindblom looking like he will probably play sometime next year there isn't much room anyway:
ya lindblom coming back changes everything. Its looking like he will play at some point next year which is amazing. Flyers have tough decisions now with expansion
Getting a top 6 winger back for nothing...that would be amazing. If ghost can regain form...that would mean another top 4 d for nothing. If patrick can come back...middle 6 center for nothing. Didn't think this team can be even better than their finish toward the season. Im excited. The later the season starts the better for patrick/lindblom.
Pitlick will be priced out. It's largely a cap decision
Pitlick could have been a cap casualty regardless but with the cap situation league wide being in even more doubt you can’t be paying relatively high prices for fourth liners.
Is this good? Do we want this?
I dont think it should be too tough tbh!

Ustimeko, Ersson etc.
Is Lindblom going to have enough games played to have to be protected?
If he's on LTIR long enough he could be exempt. Last time it was all veterans who would never play again, though.
Expansion Draft: Full Rules
* Players with potential career-ending injuries who have missed more than the previous 60 consecutive games (or who otherwise have been confirmed to have a career-threatening injury) may not be used to satisfy a club's player exposure requirements, unless approval is received from the NHL. Such players also may be deemed exempt from selection by the League.
He likely will need to be protected due to accruing 2 seasons. 2017-18 and 2018-19 already count.
BUT he might be declared exempt under the "career threatening injury" clause. And I guess the Flyers ask him to be depending on when he gets back, and how maybe of the 60 games before expansion he misses... as there is a proviso for that.
So whats the skinny on this kid?
