Welcome to Around the Net, a weekly look through linkage at the Philadelphia Flyers and other news from around the NHL.
Hartnell gets extended
My take on Hartnell- I love this deal, with an average cap hit of $4.75 million a year, Hartnell gets a $550,000 raise and stays in orange and black for 6 years longer. Looks really good to me.
The Wayne Train also gets paid
My take on Simmonds-Homer does is again,signing a young, up and coming player at a reasonable cap hit for the next 6 years. Simmonds is already a fan favorite, if he continues to improve and becomes a playoff performer, this deal will look better and better.
On a serious note
