Is Manning No. 49?

Numbering at 49 out of 50, Brandon Manning comes in tight to be signed as another defenseman for the Philadelphia Flyers. As the team is allowed 50 contracts in total on their salary cap, some have questioned the team’s choosing of Manning for a one year two way deal. At the age of 23 and under the Adirondack Phantoms, Manning scored 6 goals along with 15 assists within 65 games for the Phantoms.  While playing in the 2011-2012 AHL season, Manning was called up to the Flyer’s main roster to replace a then injured Pavel Kubina, a Czech player who …

The Devils find themselves heading into the 2013-14 season- I’m sorry, I can’t contain it anymore. I need to get this out. KOVALCHUK RETIRED! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA The Devils’ best player and only real scoring threat just went and retired on them. Just like that.

Flyers Add Cleary

The Flyers signed F Daniel Cleary to a three year deal on Monday. The deal cannot be made official until the end of the month, as the Flyers are over the salary cap until Chris Pronger is placed on the LTIR. The deal, as reported by USA Today, is worth $2.75 million over three years. Cleary became the odd man out in Detroit, where he’s played since 2005, after the Red Wings signed star winger Daniel Alfredsson and center Stephen Weiss. Cleary should fit nicely on the Flyers third line, as he produced nine goals and six assists during the …
