I'd love Shane Doan on the Flyers. I think he's a fantastic player and if he can hop in, play in the top-6 and at least replace Jaromir Jagr's scoring from a year ago, I'd be all for it. But for $7.5 million per year, a deal that would make him the highest paid player on the team until 2016? (Or until Claude Giroux takes that title in two years.) Not a chance in hell.
Paul Holmgren isn't this crazy, right? Please re-assure me of that before I have a panic attack.
We’re pretty close," Schenn said in a conference call with reporters. "It's surreal right now. It's hard to describe how cool this is."
The younger Schenn "couldn't believe it," Luke Schenn said. "He told me it was a dream come true. It's hard to comprehend right now."
The newest Flyer, Luke, is a 22-year old defenseman that will be an enforcer for Philadelphia. His brother, Brayden, is 20 years old and scored 12 goals in 54 games last season. He was acquired from the Los Angeles Kings a year ago. The two were born in Canada.
