Left some money on the table.

He should have stuck around for a buyout...would have been 2/3rds of his 2020/2021 contract value.

Class act to just retire and free up that cap space. He had a surprisingly good year but did not play well in the bubble.

Hank to the Caps?

seems like the best fit for us, too. hank-samsonov is a great, great duo next year.

Isn’t he going to cost quite a bit more than comparable guys who will cost less?

Shouldn't...Rags are picking up 2/3rd's of his 2020/2021 contract with the buyout...

The Pinguins have dealt goalie Matt Murray to the Ottawa Senators.

Nate Schmidt is headed to the Vancouver Canucks to reunite with Beags and Holts...

Very strange...salary dump to make room for Pietrangelo, or do they figure Seattle might take him anyway if he wasn't protected, or his act got old, or...?

Defenseman has five seasons remaining on six-year contract; Vegas gets 2022 third-round choice

I'm guessing it was the 5 years remaining on his $5.95 million average annual value deal....

I believe they are way over the cap and have to unload contracts.

Yes...by signing Pietrangelo for 7 years at $8.8MM per...Schmidty had to go, even though they got virtually nothing in return.  I question the deal...

They are stuck with Fleury as an expensive back up at like $7 million per year. They will probably have to make further trades.  When teams know you are stuck I suppose that is what happens.

I read somewhere yesterday also that his play had slipped the last two years. Not an old guy certainly but that must have been a concern.

Doc retires. Probably a good thing as I think he has slipped in recent years. Good luck to him. Now if they could just get Pierre to leave.

Aw man. I've been listening to Doc call games since he was with Bill Clement, and John Davidson after that. His voice, to me, has always been synonymous with hockey.  He'll be missed.

(I agree about Pierre - Clement was my favorite color guy)

If you haven't watched his farewell video, check it out at https://twitter.com/NHLonNBCSports/status/1318176974251216899

Clement still does the Flyers local broadcasts. The millennials hate him because he is too old school. He was great with Gary Thorne on ESPN years ago. Would be great if ESPN could get Thorne to do hockey again. Not sure if he is doing baseball anymore.

I have an autographed picture of Clement from the Broad Street Bullies days.

Thorne & Clement were terrific...by far the best duo.  Folks point to Thorne's gaffes, but he was silky smooth...not irritating...like FP.

Maybe we'll get lucky and FP will take a cue from Doc and retire...

Found this from when Doc started out on the Flyers broadcasts with legend Gene Hart.
Now he is the legend.

I guess he's related to Harold Ramis in some way?
