Flyers Still “Juggling” Roster

Hal Gill signs one-year deal with Philadelphia Flyers

The Philadelphia Flyers signed veteran defenseman Hal Gill to a one-year deal the team announced Tuesday. Gill's contract is worth $700000 according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Waiving of Hall leaves questions unanswered among the forward group

The Philadelphia Flyers waived Adam Hall on Saturday and he cleared waivers on Sunday.

Tim Panaccio: Moving Bodies Around to Save $$
