The Flyers appear to have landed their No. 2 center, even if their general manager wouldn’t confirm it Tuesday night.

Several reports say Kevin Hayes, who could have been an unrestricted free agent July 1, has agreed to a seven-year deal with the Flyers.

 

“Nothing is signed. We are still working on things,” GM Chuck Fletcher said late Tuesday. “I’m hopeful we’ll get it done.”

Hayes will get a seven-year contract for $50 million, according to the Canadian website Sportsnet. That’s an annual salary-cap hit of $7.1 million.

 
 

The Flyers are expected to make an official announcement Wednesday.

Two weeks ago, the Flyers acquired the rights to Hayes from the Winnipeg Jets for a fifth-round pick in this weekend’s draft.

The 6-foot-5, 216-pound Hayes had a combined 19 goals and a career-high 55 points in 71 games with the New York Rangers and Winnipeg last season.

 

When it becomes official, he will be reunited with new Flyers coach Alain Vigneault. Hayes, a Massachusetts native, had a career-best 25 goals while playing for Vigneault when he coached the New York Rangers in 2017-18.

Hayes, 27, had a $5.175 cap hit last season.

Fletcher has tossed away a 2nd round and a 3rd round pick and is now way overpaying for a player.  Yikes folks, this is deja vu...

It is beyond comprehension. This is a guy who was benched in the playoffs and we pay him like he is a savior. What does this say about Patrick. If Patrick is really going to become the 2nd line center, then we will be paying our 3rd line center 7.14 million a year.

 

We trade for Braun whose numbers are beyond bad; we trade for Niskanen whose numbers are declining and we retain salary, for good measure What's next, trading for Chara?

 

It took years to free up cap space and "Fleece-Me" Fletcher undid that in less than a week. Comical.

It seems like we are paying "right now relief" from a chiro for $1,000.00 a session, with a next day follow up of $450.00.

As oppose to wait it out for a few weeks and pay a chiro $80.00 a session for three times a week, for two weeks.

Hayes is the only long term contract though, so the other two contracts can be dissolved in a year or two, with little ramifications, since no young talent was given up, only promising possible legumes.

Fletcher: "Hold my beer".

 

Haha, well payed. 

 

A couple things...

 

- I really like our depth down the middle. Coots, Hayes, Patrick, Laughton. That's solid.

- It's a year or two too long as a contract, but the upside is that Hayes can play wing and will kill penalties. So there are options with him and there is value.

- I agree with folks that Fletcher does not seem like an astute negotiator.. He's not terrible.., he's just too pragmatic and matter-of-fact. The corollary to that is that by not being a d***, maybe it builds some goodwill for when we need help down the road (i.e. Pronger, VLC, Schenn, and a few other 'future considerations' cap dumps when the Flyers were stuck). Holmgren burned those bridges, Hextall rebuilt them (and seemed to extract more value from trades and signings), and maybe Fletch gets to use them.

- Charlie O'Connor was referencing an article on the Gudas trade (from the Caps writers) where Radko was quoted as saying the environment was toxic in Philly. If that's the case, Fletch is trying to bring in dudes that will change that.

 

IN - Niskanen, Hayes, Braun

OUT - Gudas, MacDonald, 2nd rounder, 5th rounder, 3rd rounder (2020)

 

I can understand folks not liking the terms, or trades, but those three moves have definitely made the team better.

 

How much better? We'll see.

 

If we sign a 3RW and goalie (Talbot?) in free agency, we retain Ghost and will have one heckuva blueline.

Giving a guy that kind of money who's never even hit the 50-point mark is absolutely ridiculous. Another Flyers season I'm really disinterested about another season of mediocrity another season of no Stanley Cup. The Flyers are the only reason I have cable TV it looks like that may change in the near future.  Now we have two Paul Holmgren's's in the Flyers organization

He literally just came off a 54 point season.

Would be very interested in seeing the source materials that Charlie was referring to.  Did Charlie post a link?

 

I do wonder if Radko is referring to the Hextall/Hakstol era.  Hope it's not a shot at the players.

Hate it, hate it, hate it.  Hayes is going to have to improve a lot for this to make sense, because if he doesn't, there won't be a spot for him on this roster.  You have to be top 6 (and producing like a top 6 forward) to earn that kind of coin and I don't ever see him getting 70 points.  I sincerely doubt Patrick's ceiling is on the 3rd line, so how many years X 7 million are the Flyers going to waste on Hayes?

I think Buffalo took care of that with the Skinner signing. That's a better comparable.

Actually, the real shame of it is that Patrick hasn't taken a step forward and claimed that 2C slot.

 

Yep and now he will have Frost breathing down his neck wanting that 3rd line center spot so he better get a move on or he could find himself getting a move out...no way i would deny Frost that spot since if he is ready....then the Flyers will have another issue on their hands...but it will be a good problem i guess.

Every team needs a 4C, @OccamsRazor.

Yes not to change subject but it didn't take Radko long to start throwing daggers...anyways makes me wonder who he was referring to when he said all they cared about was themselves...i would love to know who that was.

I agree i hope it works out....they MUST make the playoffs this year...i think they will Columbus will easily now fall by the wayside i think after what they all lose. It needs to work or else i will have to grab a pitchfork and join the mob...

So, one time 20 goal scorer, one time 50 point player (not even the same year), in a five year career.

 

$7+M deal for seven years...

 

Welcome to the poster child for the next lockout.

 

Happy as heck for this to work out. Skeptical.

On the face, I think it's too much money for too many years.  That being said, there are no other options out there and Fletch had no choice but to sign a 2C.   Could you imagine if he didn't get a 2c this summer?   Flyers brass must be breathing down his neck.   Flyers fans would have lost their collective minds.   

As Brelic said:

Don't forget that this helps 5 on 5 and the penalty kill.    They don't have to waste Couturier/Giroux on the PK as much.

 

I do think that this causes some issues in the future.   Where does Frost fit in?   Couturier just gained a huge bargaining chip.    

 

What does the middle look like in 4 years?   Couturier, Patrick, Frost, Hayes?     Does Couturier get traded and bump everyone up one line? 

 

Will be interesting to see how it shakes out in the future, but for now the Flyers are a better team than they were 2 month ago.

      So, we're back to..."Oh look...shiny!"    F*** me, over 7 mil a year for a 20..make that 19 goal scorer....for 7 f****** years...he did rack up THREE playoff points... while getting benched....Fletcher saves that 5th rounder!    the return of the son of Homer.   Does this mean we pay Provorov $14 Million a year?   Whens the buyout?   This is Bryz all over again...without the insane comic relief.    Holmgren signed some really dumb contracts.

      He absolutely is. If he wasn't, he wouldn't have gotten it. That's how markets work.    And Philly is not the only team that would have ponied it up.    Jeff Skinner, career high 63 points (with Eichel feeding him the puck), $9M Evander Kane, career high 57 points (7 years ago), $7M Ryan O'Reilly, career high 64 points at the time of signing, $7.5M Brock Nelson, career high 53 points, $6M JVR, career high 62 points, $7M   We don't have to like it

      Just to prove that I'm not a complete grumpy F|_|ck...   -This was definitely NOT a team building contract, but it is sort of in line with some of the other gross contracts out there. I think it was too much both in dollars and term, but if a team thinks they're in the Cup window, those are the sorts of deals they're willing to sign. -The Flyers are, this week, suddenly a very good team on paper, and should have money left to spend on their RFA contracts. -This series of move

      The team has been transformed,  it has been pretty expensive.     Like last year this should be a good team on paper even if nothing else happens.   I think 7 x 7 is too beaucoup for soul brotha...that said; we go Couturier,  Hayes, Patrick and Laughton down the middle...**** you little men, try and get the puck from us. Also, the Flyers got 3 players capable of playing quality pk minutes in this flurry of activity.  This team should be better, new veteran coaches,

      @elmatus   Imagine not playing 8 goaltenders last year and the big free agent signing didn't miss the first 2.5 months of the season from a freak injury.   Or imagine one of those 8 goalies proved to "not suck" for I don't know 3 months, do we still think last year's team was a dumpster fire?   I don't i think last year's team was as bad as they showed.  I also know Gudas' ceiling was reached and it wasn't very high, I know Macdonald was a passenger and not worth hi
