Flyers Make Big Move

Aug 4, 2005, 2:02 AM EDT

I’m a football fan first, baseball fan second, basketball third, but I’m still a sports fan from Philly.  That, by default, makes me a fan of the orange and black.  I’m by no means a hockey aficionado but I know a big signing when I see one and the Flyers going after and getting Peter Forsberg is a big move:

   "Peter Forsberg is one of the best players in the game,"
general manager Bob Clarke said in a statement. "We signed him
knowing that he puts us over the cap and we will have to trade some
guys now."

   The move comes a day after the Flyers bulked up their defense by
signing hulking blue liners Derian Hatcher, Mike Rathje and Chris Therien to free-agent contracts.

There is a lot to look forward to for you big time Flyers fans.  I’ll admit, I do miss a good Flyers game on the television.
