Even before he was traded to Philadelphia, Radko Gudas often felt like the quintessential Flyers defenseman. It’s become clear that he’ll also be a long-time Flyers defenseman.

The team announced a multi-year contract for Gudas on Thursday night.

TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that it’s a four-year deal with a cap hit that ranges between $3 million and $3.5 million per season. That would make the overall impact somewhere between $12-$14 million.’s Tim Panaccio reports that it’s four years for $13.4 million, which would mean a $3.35 million cap hit.

Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston breaks it down in greater detail:

He’ll provide a nasty presence for the Flyers going forward, even if he’s learned from a series of questionable hits.

People aren’t too thrilled with the price Philly paid.
