Blogs > In The Room with Anthony SanFilippo

Daily Times beat writer Anthony J. SanFilippo takes you inside the locker rooms of the Philadelphia Flyers and the rest of the NHL.

It's becoming more and more apparent that the Flyers really like their most recent first round draft pick Luca Sbisa.

Signing him to an entry level contract today is perhaps the biggest clue.

Sbisa, 18, signed an entry level contract with the Flyers, which locks him up for the next three years.

This doesn't mean he is staying with the team. He's still probably going to end up back with his junior team (Lethbridge) in the WHL. But, it actually gives the Flyers a little bit of a discount on a player they think could be a big part of the team before this contract expires.

Sbisa has been impressive in training camp, playing well beyond his age, and looks like he could play in the NHL right now.

With the core group the Flyers have locked up, and players like Sbisa and James vanRiesdyk coming in the next year or two, the FLyers appear to be stocked in the talent department for years to come.
