On Monday, the Philadelphia Flyers announced they dealt Darroll Powe to Minnesota for a third-round pick in 2013.
Word is the team was trying to sign Powe, but coming up unsuccessful. Apparently when all hope was lost, the team turned and offered Powe to the highest bidder, which was a third-round pick two years from now.
With 196 hits, Powe led the team and will be somewhat difficult to replace in that aspect of the game.
The Flyers also announced the signing of restricted free agent winger Anreas Nodl to a two-year deal with a cap hit of $845,000 per season, and finally announced the signing of Tom Sestito, who played for the Phantoms last year and is expected to do so once again next season.
Nodl scored 11 goals last season and is expected to see an increased role next year.
In addition, the Flyers made qualifying offers to restricted free agents Wayne Simmonds and Jake Voracek, acquired in the recent trades of Mike Richards and Jeff Carter, and John Kalinski.
The team did not, however, extend an offer to Dan Carcillo, who is facing a suspension to begin next season.
