Bourdon Inks a Deal

The Flyers 3rd round pick from the 2008 draft, Marc-Andre Bourdon, is now signed to an entry level contract for an undisclosed amount. This 6’0, 215 pound defenseman caught eyes from many after having a good season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL). According to the Flyers official site, he was 2nd in the league in points for defensemen, with 147 points in 186 regular season games. Not bad for a D-man.

If he continues to grow, this could be a very worthwhile draft pick/signing. An average-sized guy like that who is able to move the puck and score/set-up goals makes it interesting to see what he could do if and when he gets to the NHL level; which I’m hoping he will. Hope to see him a couple seasons since the track for most blue liners is a few years to move up and make impact at the NHL level.

Biron to New York (Islanders)

In a strange turn of events watching a few of our Flyers go to different teams this off-season, Marty Biron was the next unrestricted free agent to go to another team. The Islanders have signed him to a small, $1.4 million one-year deal (see: rental). Ray Emery was signed with the Flyers for a one-year $1.5 million deal, which means Marty trying to hold out and bank on a team giving him financial and team security ultimately failed; getting signed for less than the Flyers newest goaltender. Speculation circles this move by the Islanders as they already have 2 goaltenders, one being the ailing injured DiPietro. This now raises the question whether or not he’ll be healthy enough to go between the pipes come October.

Looking Back on the Past Season; Looking Ahead

So we’ve been sitting around for the past month after watching our most recent rival, the Pittsburgh Penguins, win their first Stanley Cup since the Lemieux era.  A year and some months ago, we were watching the magical run of the Flyers with Biron stopping everything in his way and Umberger exploding over the Habs. We were watching our team go to the Eastern Conference Final after not making the playoffs and having a franchise-worst season.  But, where are we now?
