So the NHL lockout is officially over! Last night the players voted to approve the new 10 year CBA and finally signed the memorandum of understanding. Which means that the NHL lockout is officially over and the new season is set to begin. Schedules went out almost immediately upon the signing of the MOU.
The Flyers training camp starts today at 11 am. They are also already making headlines in terms of trades. Yup, 24 hours or less into the season they are already making choices that have fans stumped.
Firstly there was rumors that they were going to sign free agent Kurtis Foster, which they did this morning. That signing was not that out of the blue, and most fans expected it. What was out of the blue was them re-acquiring goaltender Brian Boucher from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for prospect Luke Pither.
If you’re sitting there saying to yourself, “Why? Is this 2009?” don’t worry you’re not alone. Let’s go Flyers?
