I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Wow. Not a complete shock but still pretty surprising. Good riddance though. Other than some flashes last year he never put it together.

Anybody got more info on Tollefson? Or where I can go to find it? Thanks!

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Tollefsen?

Disappointing. Leino has sucked this year but I still believe he can become a good player..

If Tollefsen is as good as he's in NHL 10, this is a good move. Leino and Philadelphia? Not a very good combination. biggrin.gif

edit: Tollefsen's cap hit is 600k and his contract ends after this year. Better than Lebda and Meech? At least he's bigger than them.

Is this the same Tolle that was in Columbus? Part of the Umberger trade I believe.

With our scouts, the 5th might be more than worth just Tolle.

I'd rather have Janik get called up come playoffs time...if we make it.

Tollefsen is a decent enough hitter, but he seems to have a lot of defensive lapses and he can't put numbers up. I'd assume that he'll be waived and sent to GR, as the whole point is to clear cap space for Franzen.

Does anybody think that this might be a prelude to getting rid of Meech or Lebda? I'm 100% serious. It's not like we needed another defenceman, especially with Lilja coming back.

Reading through comments of the Flyers fans, it seems like Tollefsen is like the Flyers' version of Lebda.

I took the liberty of updating his Wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia....stian_Tollefsen
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Probably. But that's still better than Leino. And he provides a dimension we didn't have much of.

Worst case scenario we save a few dollars for the cap and get a draft pick.

Edit: Just as a bit more information, apparently the pick is in 2011, not in 2010.

I was thinking the same thing.....

Also about him being the flyers Lebda... I live in the philly area and are surrounded by Philly fans... They do not like one single player on there team lol.... For the most a lot of philly fans will pick a part every single on of there players... so take it with a grain of salt...

Half of my buddies that are flyers fans say Hartnell is there favorite player... Thats over Carter and Richards lol...
