from the Courier-Post,
When the Flyers fortified their porous defense in the offseason by acquiring Kimmo Timonen from the Nashville Predators and Jason Smith from the Edmonton Oilers, Flyers’ defenseman Denis Gauthier wondered whether he’d be starting training camp wearing a different uniform.
“Yeah, I was concerned,” Gauthier said Tuesday after a scrimmage with several other Flyers’ veterans. “I wanted to be back. When I signed that two-year (contract) extension I planned on being here the whole two years. I feel like I was a part of getting (junior teammate) Danny Briere to come here. That would have really (ticked) me off, giving up on me after one year.”
That two-year extension, valued at $2.1 million in each of the next two seasons, could end up being an albatross for Gauthier, especially if Mike Rathje is successful in his attempted comeback.
