I will add 2 more things.

1. If Ristolainen pans out and the change of scenery works, I think the Flyers will be in extremely good shape. Because if he's a rock solid top 4 guy, their defense is going to be very good. And if their defense is very good, I think Hart will be very good. It's a big if to me, but I love mall's confidence in him.

2. I have to give props to Fletcher. He did a hell of a lot to change the team and didn't give up guys like Konecny or Sanheim. I thought he'd have to for sure to get a 1RD and he didn't. So, props to Fletcher.
If Ristolinen works out and has a very good year he will be gone in free agency and we traded away our first and second next year along with Hagg for a one year rental. So i hope he has a mediocre year this year and turns it up to another level if we resign him after next season.

That's called the old catch 22 lol.

I want to win this year, so I hope he kills it this year. If he walks after a huge year that helps the Flyers win, who cares :)

The old guard is getting too old to root for next year's best case. Gotta root for this year's best case and see where it gets them.

If it takes Risto having a great season for us to win a cup then so be it i hope he has the best season ever recorded. But only if we win the cup.

A very good year for Risto and the Flyers will be a solid 2 pairing dman. I think he had to play above his head in Buffalo. He may not break the bank and hopefully the cap goes up. If he can be signed, we have a top 4 for several years.

I see a lot of Risto talk here. From getting to see this big Finish dman a few times over the years this is what I saw as an outsider from this Sabre team. The fan base became frustrated with him imo because of where he was drafted and they had unrealistic expectations of the guy. You will see now that Dahlin will get torn apart from the Sabre fan base now that Risto is gone. I sincerely believe Risto is made to be a Flyer. His game resembles the old style Flyers hockey. He's an aggressive player and loves to hit, and he will finish his checks. And he's a clean hitter. I will be shocked if CF doesn't sign him to an extension during the season. My prediction you guys are going to love him.
