Dale Tallon likes those old Chicago Blackhawks. Another one is joining him. 

Kris Versteeg has been traded from the Flyers to the Panthers for a second round pick in either 2012 or 2013 and San Jose's third round pick in 2012. For the record, the Flyers traded a first rounder and a third rounder for him at the deadline. Just saying.

We were wondering where the Flyers would get the room to sign Wayne Simmonds, who we haven't heard a peep about on this July 1. This is where the money will come from, as we expect Simmonds to get about $1.8 million per year on his contract with the Flyers. 

Trading Versteeg sheds a hair over $3 million off of the cap. Nice knowing you, guy.
