shortest offseason ever!!!!!! Nice to see Homer adding someone who already has experience losing to the blackhawks in the playoffs



Flyers trade for Dan Hamhuis to bolster defense
By Sam Carchidi
Inquirer Staff Writer

During their playoff run to the Stanley Cup Finals, the Flyers were reluctant to use their third defensive pairing.

So, in his first move of the off-season, general manager Paul Holmgren made a deal Saturday that significantly upgrades that unit, acquiring defenseman Dan Hamhuis and a conditional draft pick in 2011 from Nashville for Ryan Parent, a little-used and frequently injured defenseman.

Now the Flyers have 11 days to sign the 6-foot-1, 209-pound Hamhuis (pronounced HAM-HOOS), who can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

Hamhuis, whom the Flyers pursued at the trade deadline, earned $2 million last season.

Hamhuis, 27, was drafted in the first round (12th overall) by Nashville in 2001

Good move. After signing Coburn there wont be much room though.

It'd be nice to see the Flyers sign Georges Laracque so that Carcillo doesn't have to sit all by himself in the box.

I'd like to see the Flyers pick up a veteran 6th defenseman that they could alternate with Bartulis (what was the one defenseman's name who came here from the Flames and then went to the Kings?

Philly could try to snag Chris Mason. He's a UFA, would only need to pay him 2.5-3.5 mil per season.

Vandermeer came here from Chicago for Stanley Cup Champion Ben Eager.

You might mean Denis Gauthier. He played for Calgary, but came here from Phoenix, then went to Los Angeles.

I could imagine the Flyers trading Carter for Tim Thomas and the 15th pick
