I just read about these issues here:

That's a fair list of surgeries.

Hartnell is in for evaluation on his hip as well.

So possibly we will see a better/healthy Versteeg next season, who I wasn't entirely impressed with.

Take this with a grain of salt but Ektard is saying that Versteeg may go to Phoenix for the rights to negotiate with Bryzgalov.

That doesn't make much sense to me at all. Basically throw a way a first round pick and a solid proven player for the right to talk to a goalie? Like usual, I hope he is wrong.

It sound's like they were so set on winning this season they put future seasons at risk by playing injured players and not letting them heal properly.
I'm really not a fan of the whole trading to get the rights to someone. Didn't work with Hamhuis at the start of this season did it?

Depending on the player whose rights they get and what exactly is being offered (6th round pick I'm usually okay with), but not a player like Versteeg.

Flyers have signed Finnish goaltender Niko Hovinen.

Quote:
The Philadelphia Flyers announced today that they have signed 6’ 5”, 196-lb goaltender Niko Hovinen to an entry-level contract, according to general manager Paul Holmgren.

Hovinen, 23 (3/16/88), played for Lahti of the Finnish Elite League during the 2010-11 season. He posted a record of 17-25-5 in 49 appearances, along with a 2.59 goals-against average, a .921 save percentage and three shutouts.

A native of Helskini, Hoivinen was a member of Finland’s IIHF World Championship team that defeated Sweden 6-1 in the final on May 15. He was drafted by the Minnesota Wild in the fifth round (132nd overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, but never signed with the club.

Carcillo has been suspended for the first two games of next season due to game 4.

http://flyers.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=563038

Quote:
Philadelphia Flyers' forward Daniel Carcillo has been suspended for the period covering two regular season games, without pay, for his actions off the ice following the first period of Game #4 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Boston Bruins on May 6, the National Hockey League announced today.

National Hockey League Senior Vice President of Hockey Operations Mike Murphy reached the decision following a hearing into the matter on May 13. The hearing was conducted pursuant to article 18.1 (on-ice discipline) and 18.2 (off-ice discipline) of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, NHL By-Law 17 and Article 6 of the NHL Constitution as a result of an incident outside of the officials' locker room following the first period and a verbal confrontation with linesman Brian Murphy at the players' bench prior to the start of the second period.

"Between the first and second period, while off ice and outside the officials' locker room, Mr. Carcillo engaged in aggressive behavior and inappropriate conduct directed at the officials," said Murphy. "While Mr. Carcillo acknowledged in the hearing that he regrets his actions outside of
the officials' room, there can be no defense for his conduct.

"I also reviewed the verbal confrontation between Carcillo and linesman Brian Murphy at the players' bench prior to the start of the second period and have determined that, while the verbal abuse may have been worthy of a penalty, there is no evidence that Carcillo's action merit supplemental discipline," concluded Murphy.

Carcillo will miss his club's first two regular season games in 2011-12.

The forfeited money shall go to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund.

I don't want to lose Carter or any of those guys, but one of them will be going I think. We have lost some great players in the last few years, but I think this off-season will take the cake.(Lupul, Upshall, Knuble, Sbisa, etc.)
