Welcome to Philadelphia International Airport, Ray Emery

Jun 9, 2009, 11:48 PM EDT

While the Flyers haven't officially said what Wednesday's "major announcement" at 11:00 am will be about, general manager Paul Holmgren was spotted at Philadelphia International Airport this evening picking up net minder Ray Emery. The deal can't be inked until the July 1st free agent period begins, but most reports are pointing to a one-year, $1.5 million deal.

The looming announcement of Emery seems to be polarizing the loyal Flyers fan base. If he can play at Marty Biron levels at a steep discount, it could allow the team to add some punch elsewhere.
