Draft Day Transactions: Jonathan Matsumoto traded to Carolina for 206th pick

The Flyers have traded Jonathan Matsumoto to the Carolina Hurricanes for the 206th pick. We then used the pick to choose Ricard Blidstrand.

I hate the fact that the Flyers gave up on him. But I can't say this comes as a surprise. The lack of callups from the Flyers, plus the fact that I don't recall seeing his name on the "taxi squad" of potential injury fill-ins during the NHL Playoffs pretty much telegraphed this move well in advance.

Resuming blogging; Johan Backlund signs 2-year contract

Apologies for the lengthy time gap between posts. There've been some, shall we say, health issues that came crashing down in December. Three specialists later, we figured out what was causing the symptoms and the treatment process is under way. Thank God.

Anyway, things still aren't entirely resolved on that front. However, as I've been feeling more like a human being again, I've decided to pick up blogging again, starting with offseason transactions.

For example, the Flyers have just signed Johan Backlund to a two-year deal. See for details.
