NO LINEUP CHANGE/NEW GOALIE FOR NEXT YEAR?
Good job source!
Anyway, Timonen is going to play through whatever sickness he has, something he didn't do a few weeks ago when he missed a week with the flu.
Danny Syvret was called up as an emergency call up, something that teams are allowed to do without it counting against their four call-up limit after the trade deadline assuming they get permission from the league... which the Flyers did.
In other news...
The Flyers signed free agent Swedish golaie Johan Backlund on a one-year contract for the 2009-10 season.
Backlund, 27, has spent his entire career in Sweden and played for his country in the 2007 World Championships. His team finished fourth in the tournament.
This could spell the end of Antero Niittymaki's career with the Flyers. An unrestricted free agent, he probably won't be re-signed assuming the Flyers make an offer to fellow free agent Marty Biron.
Backlund would replace Niittymaki as the team's backup.
