Flyers retain Adam Hall for one year, $600K

The Philadelphia Flyers decided to bring back forward Adam Hall on Thursday, agreeing to a one-year deal that will net him $600K, according to team Web site reporter Anthony SanFilippo.

More than anything else, the 33-year-old brings versatility to the table. Hall is listed as a wing, yet he can play defense and win faceoffs effectively enough to be a solid fourth-line center.

(Points aren’t a big part of the equation with just four in 37 games between the Tampa Bay Lightning, Carolina Hurricanes and Flyers last season, but that’s reflected in his paycheck.)

Flyers blog Broad Street Hockey speculates that Hall’s re-signing might imply another move is in the works – the team is nearing its expected limit for forwards, with some prospects seemingly on the verge of a jump to the NHL – but we’ll have to wait and see what the rest of the summer holds.

    I was hoping they would bring him back. He fit in very well. They could have a very solid (and irritating) 4th line. And 600k is certainly the right price. Nice move Homer.

    Flyers: Second best winning percentage since 1967…yet only two cups to show for it.

      Pens wish they had a 4th liner like Hall, instead they have Tanner Glass.

        we had hall but he couldn’t make the team.

    No one is wishing for anything the Flyers have. They blow.

      ya cause you wouldn’t want a guy like giroux or voracek on your team, they make absolute beautiful music together, and could easily be just as good as malkin/crosby……perry/getzlaf……ovechkin/backstrom………or even datsyuk/zetterberg

    • phillyphanatic77 - Jul 4, 2013 at 8:40 PM

      Gimme a freakin break… yeah, no one wants Giroux, Voracek, Simmonds, Read, both Schenns, Lecavalier, Timonen, Coburn (probably the best defender on the trade block), etc etc. Flyers haters can’t stand that they’re improving their roster.

      • phillyphanatic77 - Jul 4, 2013 at 8:42 PM

        Forgot Couturier, who comes up in EVERY trade rumor. No one wants a 6’4″ 20yr old two-way C with a high ceiling.

      • blackheart78 - Jul 4, 2013 at 8:51 PM

        PP77 you think a Coburn move is coming soon? Or does Mez go?

      • phillyphanatic77 - Jul 4, 2013 at 9:01 PM

        Obviously I’d rather see Mezsaros go but he has little value right now. He still has to cleared by a doctor. So I think it’s very likely Coburn gets moved. Despite his horrendous season he still seems to have high trade value. 6’5″ defenders with his speed are rare, which is why I’d like to keep him. But his contract matches Lecavaliers perfectly.

        I wouldn’t be surprised at all to see Coburn end up in Edmonton in the next 48hrs. They seem willing to give up a lot and the Flyers need the cap space. It’s been an interesting offseason for this team, but I don’t think they’re close to being done.

      • blackheart78 - Jul 4, 2013 at 9:10 PM

        PP77 If Coburn goes, I just hope the Flyers get value for him. Understood they are against the cap right now, and someone has to go but I hope something significant comes back to the Flyers. I was hoping the Flyers could’ve gotten a late 1st round pick or something for Coburn on Sunday. Who knows? Should be a very interesting weekend.

    • 19to77 - Jul 4, 2013 at 9:01 PM

      Right. Not their point-per-game centre, not their point-per-game winger, not their big 30-goal power forward, and hey, f*ck Brayden Schenn and Sean Couturier too while we’re at it. Who wants young guys with upside? Not the Penguins, I’m sure, since they seem to prefer paying $7.25 million dollars a season to watch a guy they call their top defenseman give the puck away to the opposing team and fail at backchecking.

    • laxman1944 - Jul 4, 2013 at 9:15 PM

      Wonderful…..Passionate…….supportive (as long as you work your ass off) fan base ……check

      Ownership that is willing do whatever it takes to win……..check

      Wish you had all of the above……..check

    The only improving the Flyers do is adding on another year to there championship drought

    • maalea - Jul 5, 2013 at 1:04 AM

      Just the type of response, I would expect for a 20 year old know it all.
