Flyers announce 2 signings today.
Ruslan Fedotenko – returns back to the team but this time almost 10 years later hes coming back. He will not be a player that will light the lamp often for us but he will bring solid depth and SIZE. Something that we needed after losing Jagr and JVR. Regardless I think that this move that is a small step in a bigger things to come.
Now lets remember he has been in the division his whole Career, between us Tampa, Pitt, and NYR. He also scored 16 goals in his career against Philly so you have to add while you subtract here too.
Oh and lets not forget, he won a cup with Tampa Bay and also Pittsburgh.
As it is now assume that the lines will look like this. Im also assuming here that Voracek gets resigned
Line 1: Hartnell-Giroux-Voracek
Line 2: Schenn-Briere-Simmonds
Line 3: Fedotenko-Couturier-Read
Line 4: Rinaldo-Talbot-Wellwood
We also have a lot of swing players that can fit or fill in too. Players such as Shelley and some that are AHL or not resigned yet such as Betts, Ford, Holmstrom, McGinn, Sestito, Zolnierczyk.
But again I feel that we wil be in on BOTH a Bobby Ryan trade as well as trying hard to bring in Shane Doan. I really feel those two will bring some pieces that we feel would push us over the top.
Bruno Gervais – As far as the Defensive player he actualy isn’t horrible, but again nothing spectacular either. First off the bat hes another RIGHT HANDED shot as a defensiveman. Which is big. Other then hat in all honesty this kid is a 7th D-Man at best, nothing to get to excited about here.
