The Flyers made a nice depth signing yesterday by bringing Ruslan Fedotenko back to the city where his professional career began. The deal made sense both hockey-wise and financially, requiring only a one-season commitment to the 33-year-old at $1.75 million. First and foremost, Fedotenko is still a pretty good two-way grinder. He's good on the boards and responsible defensively, albeit rather...

Flyers Small Moves May Be An Indication of Trades to Come

The Philadelphia Flyers saved themselves a bunch of money by signing Ruslan Fedotenko and Bruno Gervais today. Obviously, losing out in the sweepstakes to land bigger names forced the Flyers to make some smaller moves. Between the two deals, it would appear the Flyers spend about $2.5 million. That still puts the team in foreign territory – well UNDER the salary cap. In the past...

Flyers Sign Fedotenko And Gervais

from PhiladelphiaFlyers.com, Flyers GM Paul Holmgren announced that the club has signed forward Ruslan Fedotenko and defenseman Bruno Gervais to contracts today. Fedotenko returns for his second stint with the Flyers after beginning his NHL career with Philadelphia in 2000-01 through the 2001-02 season. “Ruslan is a good two-way forward that can play either wing and will bring...

Tim Panaccio: What They Had to Say

The Flyers welcomed Ruslan Fedotenko and Bruno Gervais to Flyerdom on Thursday. Gervais and Max Talbot are the best of friends, going back to their youth, growing up in Quebec. "Fed" is no stranger to Flyers fan and gives an honest performance on the ice. He might not make up for the 50+ plus points of Jaromir Jagr, but he is capable of half that many. Gervais...

Flyers miss out on major free-agent action

The Philadelphia Flyers lost out on free-agent stars Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. They flat-out lost Jaromir Jagr and Matt Carle. They traded one of their former cornerstones in James van Riemsdyk and brought back a journeyman goalie in Michael Leighton. For a franchise that's never been afraid to make a major deal, this offseason has been a slow one for the Flyers. It doesn...

Flyers sign F Fedotenko, D Gervais

The Flyers on Thursday signed a pair of free agents, forward Ruslan Fedotenko and defenseman Bruno Gervais. Fedotenko, a veteran who will enter his 12th season in the NHL, won the Stanley Cup with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2004 and the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009. This is his second stint with Flyers, having played in Philadelphia from 2000-02. Last season, he helped the New York...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Carle, Next Steps, Gervais

The off-season is far from over. There is still time for general manager Paul Holmgren to make the Philadelphia Flyers a better hockey team heading into next season. But, so far at least, his offseason has gone very much like a bad Ryan Howard game: big swings, big misses, and misplays in the field. I do not blame the Flyers for going all out to sign Zach Parise and/or Ryan...

Flyers Facing Dilemma on Defense with Matt Carle Gone, Chris Pronger Out and Ryan Suter Off the Market

Zach Parise and Ryan Suter may have finally signed on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean free agency is over. On contrary, those signings should mean even more activity is on the way, as the teams that lost out on the top two players on the market will now be scrambling to salvage something from the next tier of free agents. That won't be easy though, as those pickings are...

The new bottom six forwards

Over the past few days, we have seen some fairly significant roster turnover for the Rangers. While the majority of the core remains intact, the Rangers saw Arron Asham and Taylor Pyatt come in to –for all intents and purposes– replace Brandon Prust, Ruslan Fedotenko, and John Mitchell. We’ve analyzed Asham versus Prust and Pyatt versus Fedotenko individually. But to be fair...
