    Carney plus Kim Johnsson, Mark Parrish, and Pavol Demitra…Minnesota has really made some noise. Carney should fit in like a glove in Minnesota’s system.

    As much as I really loved having Johnsson on the flyers, he is one hit away from being finished. He has a great upside if he stays healthy, but close to 5mil a season is a big gamble on a guy who took way too long to recover/may not be recovered from a concussion

    Veggetto, I think you’re a Flyers fan (ignore this if I’m wrong), so let me ask you a question…why was Clarke so disinterested in bringing Kim Johnsson back? From what I know of him, he’s a pretty solid blueliner…as somebody who watches Philly more often than I do, maybe you can point out the flaws in his game.

  14. Flyers4Ever says:

    The asking price was too steep on a player that was not fully recovered from a concussion and still may not be. He is a great Dman both defensivley and offensivly, but his health problems right now are very up in the air.

  15. Kamakaze says:

    So the Wild add a very good 1st line center, a good 2nd/1st line RW, a defensive defenseman, and an offensive defenseman.

    Add that to Gaborik, Bouchard, Rolston and White and you have a pretty good top 6 with lots of speed and skill, ans some defensive responsability.

    For a defensive team they are kind of weak on defense, but Carney adds a lot of grit and experience to their young group, and with steady goaltending from Fernandez and very good team defense, I don’t think they are playoff bound just yet, but I htink they just made themselves a lot harder to play against…

    First off, I love Kim Johnsson as a player and am very sad to see that he won’t be a member of the Flyers.

    That being said, I don’t like the fact that the market for UFA defenders is now orbiting Jupiter. Much as I like Johnsson, he’s not worth $4.85 million per season, especially coming off a year in which he missed the second half and all of the playoffs with a concussion.

    People like John Ferguson, Mike Barnett, and Peter Chiarelli are responsible for this crap. Johnsson asked for $4 million from Bob Clarke and was denied, due to his injury and sub-par season (Clarke probably would have taken him back at $3.25 million, a nice bump from his previous $2.8). JFJ shells out $17 million for four blueliners, Barnett and Chiarelli shock everyone by snatching up Jovo and Chara respectively at astronomical wages, and all of a sudden Johnsson gets almost a million bucks more from a non-playoff team?

    This will get out of control.

  17. Flyers4Ever says:

    I would have to agree with you. Chara was gonna get the boat anyway from whomever signed him. But Jovo getting old and not quite as good as he used to be. Johnsson got overpaid as well. The Flyers would have def signed him for under 4mil if he wanted to take a “hometown discount” much like redden somewhat did.
