Let's just look at a few Tweets from a few different people today, shall we? These are in chronological order.
No truth to this. RT @CanucksEdge Pierre McGuire says he's hearing Hamhuis is closing in on a deal with the Flyers in the $5 mil/yr range.
Considering the Flyers 1st offer was a little more than $3 mil, it doesn't just skyrocket to $5 mil in 5 days. I'm told around $4 is right.
I think it's likely to sign Hamhuis around $4 & still have enough ($3m) for Coburn and a goalie. I dont see any way Flyers dont sign Hammer.
Dan Hamhuis is not at all close on contract talks with PHI and at this point, all signs point to him going to UFA.
What the hell is going on here? This story isn't done, and now other people are saying the Flyers are looking to trade Hamhuis' rights to Vancouver. Meanwhile, Seravalli has a source saying the Flyers aren't looking to move Hamhuis' rights. This is a mess.
Honestly, if you want a baseless opinion from me on this, the Vancouver media and their fans have been all over Hamhuis because he's a local boy. That should be taken into consideration -- they want this guy, and they have reasons to start rumors because of that fact. Again, that's just an uninformed opinion from me, but it's something I've noticed ever since the Flyers traded for the guy last weekend.
