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 experience and depth to our forward group,” said Holmgren. He is coming off the past two seasons with the New York Rangers, recording nine goals and 20 points in 73 regular season games this past season, while adding another seven points (2G-5A) and a plus-7 rating in 20 Stanley Cup Playoff games during the Rangers run to the Eastern Conference Final. continued

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...

Report – Flyers Sign Defenseman Bruno Gervais

According to Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Flyers are close to coming to terms with defenseman Bruno Gervais. Gervais spent six years with the New York Islanders and was traded last season to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Once the Flyers were scorned by Ryan Suter earlier today, the Flyers found themselves scrambling for defensive help and turned their sites on Gervais...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: The Return of Rusty, Doan's Decision, Lilja

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...

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 sign Fedotenko, Gervais

The Philadelphia Flyers signed two free-agent players on Thursday -- forward Ruslan Fedotenko and defenseman Bruno Gervais. According to ESPN, Gervais' contract is for two years at $825,000 per season, and Fedotenko signed a one-year contract worth $1.75 million. Fedotenko, 33, had nine goals and 11 assists in 73 regular-season games with the New York Rangerslast season...

Flyers Sign Fedotenko and Gervais

The Flyers have announced today that they have signed forward Ruslan Fedotenko and defenseman Bruno Gervais. Contract details to follow.

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...

Defenseman Bruno Gervais Worth the Investment for Philadelphia Flyers

Photo Courtesy of Bruce Bennett/Getty Images By Charlie O’Connor (@THG_Charlie) Hours after the front office received word that neither Zach Parise nor Ryan Suter would be joining the Philadelphia Flyers, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the team was close to signing Bruno Gervais, a 27-year old defenseman formerly of the Tampa Bay Lightning and New York...

Flyers sign Gervais, bring back Fedotenko

After missing out on Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, the Flyers have moved on to Plan B.  That Plan B apparently involves picking up much lesser talent as the team announced today that they have signed defenseman Bruno Gervais and forward Ruslan Fedotenko.Gervais signed a two year deal worth $825,000 per season to be the Flyers 6th defenseman.  While he certainly won't replace...

Getting to know Taylor Pyatt

When the Rangers inked Taylor Pyatt to a two-year deal last night, there were more quizzical expressions than when the Rangers signed Arron Asham. The signing of Pyatt likely means that Ruslan Fedotenko is done in New York, like the way Asham’s signing meant Brandon Prust was done in New York. The swapping of bottom-six players isn’t all that uncommon, as players bolt for paydays...
