In Topic: Flyers agree to terms with Del Zotto

I agree with the Smith comparisons. 

 

Del Zotto is better right now, but Smith has all the tools to become much better than him. Smith just needs to work on his mental game .

 

Its  true Smith would get snatched up quickly in free agency due to this potential. Most people feel Del Zotto reached his peak when he flew under the radar for his 40 point season.

3 and a half quinceys and a cleary.

 

He could go either way with the flyers, he skates really well and they need to potentially replace Timonen. 

 

Low risk signing id say, he still has that potential and he has stated that he wants to show the NHL that he can still play. I kind of see this becoming similar to the Raymond signing in Toronto last year.

 

I still have to wonder if he was offered a contract to play here... he brings some of what our defence desperately needs. ( Not exactly saying he'd be a good fit; but there is that chance )

Three pages for a race bomb to be dropped...not bad.

 

Its clear that his attitude isn't perfect but it's definitely blown out of proportion because he's in Montreal.

I agree with holmstrom. 

 

As soon as he left, our PP went from #1 to 20. Obviously this is in part to Lids + Raffi, but theres no doubt he played a huge part. We havn't been able to do anything net-front wise since he left.

 

Holmstrom created so many chances just by being there, frustrating goalies and tipping shots. So many ugly rebound goals or screened shots from the point went in because of him

 

You could also make the argument that our PP stinks because we can't take it into the zone, but thats another argument.

Or baseball.

 

Yeah , at least in baseball they play what, 500 games in a season?

 

Most of it is spent standing and chewing gum, but who am I to judge?
