CSNPHILLY.COM/COURIERPOSTONLINE.COM: report the Philadelphia Flyers recent signing of Ole-Kristian Tollefsen means it’s possible Randy Jones’ tenure with the club could be coming to an end. It’s possible Jones, who signed a two-year contract last season with the Flyers paying him $2.75 million per season, could be placed on waivers this fall where he could be either claimed by a rival team or demoted to the minors.
Tollefson had a little help in making his decision on whether or not to join the Flyers from a former Flyer, Patrick Thoreson. Tollefson is quoted as saying Thoreson had nothing but good things to say about the club.
“Patrick is a really good buddy of mine,” added Tollefsen. “I just talked with him last night, so he was pretty excited for me when I told him I would be playing for the Flyers. He had nothing to say but great things about the organization.”
Along with the Jones news it is also noted in the article that Alberts has already signed with Carolina. With the departure of Derian Hatcher, Jr and Jones the Flyers defense corps has no where to go but up right now. Ideally, it would be nice to see if the Flyers could trade away Jones to another club, but who is going to want a defenseman who gets paid more than his talent warrants?
