Philadelphia Flyers

Metrpolit happy to be in Philadelphia

From Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

When the Flyers signed free-agent forward Glen Metropolit on Tuesday, general manager Paul Holmgren compared his versatility to R.J. Umberger’s.

He could have called him a poor man’s R.J. Umberger.

The Flyers signed Metropolit to a two-year, $2 million deal. Umberger, who was traded to Columbus June 20 because the Flyers didn’t have enough cap space, will eventually sign a much pricier contract with the Blue Jackets.

Aside from being versatile, Metrpolit isn’t really that similar to Umberger. The diminutive forward is a nice 3rd/4th line pick up for the Flyers and will be a good addition both on the ice and in the dressing room.
