[Philly.com] According to TSN’s Bob McKenzie, the Flyers and Simmonds agreed to a 6-year contract extension.
Simmonds, 23, will earn approximately $24 million over those 6 years with McKenzie’s estimated $4 million in average annual value. It is unclear how the deal will be structured as to whether it is back-loaded or front-loaded.
Nice. I’m a big Wayne guy. Excited to have him around for awhile. Good, young core. Let’s go win a Cup.
Ps. Every team needs an intimidator and/or instigator. Wayne is that guy for the Flyers.
Pps. I love having a black guy to root for too. I could be way off here, but I feel like black people tend to openly root for the Flyers more often, when the Flyers have a black guy, and I love that. As a Flyers fan, I love seeing black Flyers fans. Brings the city closer as far as I’m concerned.
