It's slow and steady, but Flyers making progress

The Flyers got marginally better after signing lower-level free agents Dale Weise and Boyd Gordon on Friday, but don't plan on attending a Stanley Cup parade down Broad Street next June.

Flyers sign Boyd Gordon and we’re certainly hoping it’s an AHL move

Gordon shouldn’t be an NHL player, but he also hasn’t played in the AHL in 10 years. In addition to signing Dale Weise earlier today, the Flyers have signed forward Boyd Gordon to a contract. No word on terms. Gordon, 32, is hopefully just going to be AHL depth if all goes according to plan. The former 17th overall pick by the Capitals in 2002 has played in the NHL for the majority of his career, with 693 games under his belt. In fact, he’s been an NHL regular in each of the last 10 seasons and has played just two AHL games since 2006. But ... well, not a very good one. In 65 games...

NHL free agency: Flyers appear to sign Dale Weise to 4 year deal

It could be a deal worth more than $2 million per year. The rumors were apparently true: forward Dale Weise has reportedly signed with the Philadelphia Flyers. TSN’s Bob McKenzie said on television that the deal is a four-year deal worth more than $2 million per season. Yeah, you read that right. This hasn’t been confirmed other than those couple of words out of McKenzie’s mouth, but we do have this: @daleweise22 welcome to the fly guys. @NHLFlyers. #reunited— Michael Del Zotto (@MichaelDelZotto) July 1, 2016 Weise likely replaces Ryan White on the fourth line, which is...

Flyers rumors: Is Dale Weise going to be the new Ryan White?

The Flyers are talking to Dale Weise as free agency is about ready to begin. It seemed like a foregone conclusion that Ryan White would return to the Philadelphia Flyers this summer, but ... well, it’s July 1, just a few hours before the free agency period begins and White does not have a new contract here. So maybe negotiations aren’t going so well. And maybe that has the Flyers looking elsewhere for help on their fourth line. Like Dale Weise, perhaps.

2016 Free Agency Stream

Comprehensive coverage of all the news, rumours from solid sources, trades, and everything else. The Canadiens got a good return when they moved Dale Weise at the deadline, receiving a roster player, Phillip Danault, from the Chicago Blackhawks in return for 40 regular season games and a playoff run from the pending UFA forward. Weise did not achieve as much success as he, and the 'Hawks, had hoped in his time with the then defending Stanley Cup champions. Now, looking for a new team, it seems that Weise may be coming back to the only team on which he's ever really thrived. The return of...

Dreger: Habs a "strong contender" to land Dale Weise

It was always a possibility that Weise would return to the team that gave him a top-six — and often top-three — role when others saw him as a mere depth forward. Today, it seems as though that scenario is likely. The Canadiens got a good return when they moved Dale Weise at the deadline, receiving a roster player, Phillip Danault, from the Chicago Blackhawks in return for 40 regular season games and a playoff run from the pending UFA forward.

The Canadiens have reportedly reached out to Matt Martin, but is he worth it?

Reports say that the Canadiens are one of the teams in contact with Matt Martin. Is signing him a good idea? Yesterday, it was reported that the Montreal Canadiens were one of several teams to make contact with pending UFA Matt Martin. If you believe the reports, it seems that he is yet another player, along with Dale Weise, that the Canadiens are kicking tires on as July 1 quickly approaches. Hearing DET, TOR, MTL, BOS, LAK, CGY among the teams that have reached out to Matt Martin. #Isles— Arthur Staple (@StapeNewsday) June 28, 2016 The former fifth-round draft pick had a career best...

Blackhawks free agency 2016: Chicago interested in re-signing Dale Weise, per report

The Hawks could bring back Weise if the money works. The Chicago Blackhawks have expressed interest in re-signing free agent forward Dale Weise, reports The Athletic's Scott Powers. Weise's agent, Allain Roy, told Powers that "there is interest, but not sure what they will have cap-room wise." Weise and fellow veteran forward Tomas Fleischmann were acquired from the Montreal Canadiens last season in exchange for Phillip Danault and a second-round pick. The high cost makes that deal look questionable in hindsight considering the relative impact of the two rentals before Chicago got...
