HOURS AFTER trading Scott Hartnell to Columbus yesterday for R.J. Umberger, the Flyers announced they agreed to terms on a 2-year contract extension with Brayden Schenn. The team, per its policy, did not disclose financial terms of the deal, but according to Bob McKenzie of TSN, the extension is worth an average of $2.5 million per year. Earlier in the offseason, general manager Ron Hextall said he regarded re-signing Schenn as a top priority. The 22-year-old center was set to become a restricted free agent when free agency begins on July 1. "I'm happy with the deal I got," Schenn said yesterday evening on a conference call with reporters.

From the Flyers' perspective, there are two ways to look at the fact that the New York Rangers could be on their way to reaching the Stanley Cup Finals: Having extended the Rangers to the limit in the first round, the Flyers could just as easily still be playing. Therefore, they are thisclose to being a legitimate Stanley Cup contender and not many offseason moves are needed. Or . . . The Flyers are noticeably lacking in speed when compared with Eastern Conference finalists Montreal and the Rangers, and they cannot match either team's defense.

New Flyers general manager Ron Hextall says he likes the group of forwards he has inherited, but implied something is missing. "Whether it's a perfect fit, that's a thing I tend to look at - the lines and the fit," Hextall said after being named Paul Holmgren's successor Wednesday. "There's a couple things. We had a lot of guys move around the lineup this year. I'd like to find one or two guys that are a little better fit. I don't know if that will be out there or not. That would be one priority.

Ron Hextall, named the seventh general manager in Flyers history on Wednesday, called it "my dream job. " A former standout goalie with the Flyers who also was known for his brawling style, Hextall replaced Paul Holmgren, who stepped aside and was promoted to club president. "I've got a special feeling about this organization and I am absolutely honored and thrilled to be sitting here," Hextall said during a news conference Wednesday at the Wells Fargo Center. "I'll do the best job I can, and I'll work hard to reach the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia.

Of all the Flyers, no one has a more important offseason ahead than Vinny Lecavalier, the 34-year-old forward who is coming off an odd first year with his new team. Whether it was because of a bad back, a position change, or advanced age, one thing is certain: Lecavalier did not have the type of season the Flyers envisioned when they signed him to a five-year $22 million contract. "I don't want to say I'm disappointed in Vinny for the year, but I'm disappointed for him," general manager Paul Holmgren said at the team's season-ending news conference last week.

Flyers fans feel frustrated, feel empty, as they watch the New York Rangers - the beatable team that eliminated the Orange and Black - face the beatable Pittsburgh Penguins in the second round of the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Flyers, without a Stanley Cup since 1975, feel the same way after losing to the Rangers in seven opening-round games. "I still don't think they were the better team," winger Wayne Simmonds said. The Flyers, of course, have no one to blame but themselves.

NEW YORK - Steve Mason could barely stand up to skate off the ice to rest up for the final period of the Flyers' season. He had faced 28 shots, virtually nonstop, in the game's first 40 minutes. He had faced 18 shots in the past 20 minutes. He allowed two past him, two he had no chance of stopping. He stopped 26 of them, many of which he had no business stopping. He had given everything. So had his defense, and his forwards, and his coach. They played to the extent of their abilities, and it ended this way, in a haze of exhaustion and frustration.

TO TINKER or not to tinker? That is the question for Craig Berube. To begin the third period Sunday afternoon, the Flyers coach shifted Brayden Schenn to skate with Claude Giroux and Jake Voracek. It was the first time in months Scott Hartnell was not flanked to Giroux's left. Yet, when Giroux scored his first goal at Madison Square Garden in more than 450 days, Schenn was on the bench with Steve Mason. Hartnell was in the middle of the ice, pulling Rangers defenders away from the Flyers' captain.

The New York Rangers have the upper hand in their playoff series with the Flyers because they have dominated even-strength play. New York, which can wrap up the series in six games with a win at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday, has outscored the Flyers, 11-6, in even-strength situations, excluding empty-net goals. The Flyers are giving the Rangers too much space, forward Brayden Schenn said. "When we have that support, that's when you can make those little plays and have two guys in the battle instead of one guy battling," Schenn said.
