    Raffl is the most underrated Flyer.

    Someone from the main boards who is from Sweden said he had offers from Tampa and Boston too. Chose us.

    While Pitlick stayed healthy this year after his TC mishap, he has had his injury woes.
    So the only way I could see him being resigned was a low cost one year deal - and he should get better offers.
    Better off spending the money on Braun if a mutually acceptable deal could be negotiated.

    That suggests he's not a scout's wet dream but generally considered a player.

    We have quite a few players who are criminally underrated, relative to their ability.

    Raffl, Couturier, Giroux, Voracek, Ghost... none of them get the respect they deserve. Gudas was another one.

    Jokerit just released Mikko Lehtonen from his contract. I wouldn't mind to see Fletcher to try sign him for next season, especially if Ghost gets traded. Would bring nice puck moving ability to third pairing.

    in a perfect world a signing like this makes a guy like pitlick not needed. Cheap options are always needed. I have no doubt this guy will make the team unless he jsut shows he cant cut it in camp

    Yeah, absolutely. I 100% for sure typed his name but must have accidentally deleted it without realizing....

    Id actually probably add TK to the list too.

    Someone here!

    One of the reasons for Linus to chose Philly over other teams is because of Robert Hägg. They are both from the same small village (population 2500), Alunda, and played hockey together growing up.

    An interview in Swedish about his signing can be found here.

    This will be Hagg's most positive contribution to the team, and thats assuming this guy makes the AHL roster.

    There’s two options

    1) he never gets to play with Hagg so he signed here for no reason

    2) Fletcher is a bad GM


    We’ll see.

    Lehtonen signed with Toronto.

    Toronto signs every free agent from the KHL.

    By most accounts a top KHL D, so maybe.

    He was the best European D UFA available. Maybe #4 upside.

    Lehtonen really didn't make sense for the Flyers unless they wanted to trade Ghost, another mobile LHD?
    He's not playing ahead of Provorov or Sanheim.

    Now if a young RHD springs loose, I expect Fletcher to jump on him.

    AV likes his balanced pairs.

    If I were looking for a team to emulate as far as defensemen, I don't think Toronto would be my first choice.
    RHDs:
    Boston: Carlo, MacAvoy
    TB: Cernak, Shattenkirk
    St Louis: Pietrangelo, Parayko, Faulk, Bortuzzo
    Caps: Carlson, Jensen, Gudas
    VGK: Engelland
    Col: Maker, E Johnson

    Hard to come up with more than 2 good RHDs unless you're St Louis.

    You just went off on a tangent.

    The ENTIRE point, was that the Leafs have lots of LHD as well before adding Lehtonen.

    My point was the Leafs are an aberration when it come to defense.
