Flyers trade Preds pick back, acquiring Hartnell and Timonen

The Philadelphia Flyers have dipped into the free agent market a little early, thanks to the Nashville Predators.
Because of Nashville’s uncertain ownership future and an expected tight budget in the coming year, the Predators arranged with the Flyers to give them exclusive negotiating rights to two coveted free agents – defenceman Kimmo Timonen and forward Scott Hartnell.
Sources tell TSN the Flyers have now signed both Hartnell and Timonen to long-term contracts.
This means the Flyers have acquired Scott Upshall, Ryan Parent, Hartnell and Timonen for Peter Forsberg.

    That lineup would struggle to win a Calder Cup, or a Wiss cup.
    Carmen, Jones, Bake
    golin, Bernie, Andre
    Goat, Dean, Hoagie
    K Mac, M. Dennis, Cleary
    Carter, Amos
    Bernick, Colin
    Aldo, Art
    Jenkins, Val
    That would beat the Flyers.

    I would really dislike playing that lineup. Golin, Bernie and Andre whirling around would be a serious pain in the ass.
    And Jones and Carmen criscrossing then dropping a pass to Bake. At least I’d have Jones to hide behind.
    And I would love to listen to Jenkins talk to Val on the bench. That has real comedy potential.

    “kMac”. a little street-wise, but it has a ring to it.
