  • R.J. Umberger: Bought out by Philadelphia

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/16/16) Umberger, as expected, was bought out by the Flyers and is now on the free agent market.

    Philadelphia will save $3 million in cap space by stretching out Umberger's contract through the buyout. The winger has been abysmal since being acquired via trade by the Flyers as he registered a paltry 26 points in his two seasons in the orange and black. The market is certainly dwindling for the 34-year-old, but he may still find a landing spot on a young team looking for an established veteran.

    Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Facing contract buyout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/16/16) Umberger will be the subject of a contract buyout by the Flyers, Dave Isaac of the Courier-Post reports.

    As indicated in the report, Umberger has a no-move clause which gives a player the right to decide whether he'll be placed on waivers as part of the buyout process. Umberger has been swimming in the dough thanks to his signing a five-year, $23 million extension with the Blue Jackets in 2011. He fell out of favor in Columbus and was traded to Philly almost two years ago -- along with a 2015 fourth-round pick -- in exchange for Scott Hartnell. But the 34-year-old was a colossal disappointment in the City of Brotherly Love, recording just 26 points in 106 games and struggling to rebound from a hip injury that required surgery, an issue with his foot, and a few more ailments. The Flyers' decision to buy out Umberger was a no-brainer since he only had one year remaining on that contract and the buyout includes $3 million in savings in 2016-17.

    Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Posts rare multi-point game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/16) Umberger tallied two assists Tuesday in a 6-3 win over New Jersey.

    Hey, look at that -- Umberger's put up two noteworthy efforts in the last four games, with the other one being the match against Buffalo in which he picked up his first goal of the year. It's nice to see, but we can't count on Umberger to keep finding the scoresheet; he's been absolutely atrocious from a fantasy perspective since arriving in Philadelphia last year, totaling 24 points in 103 games.

    Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Finally removes monkey from back

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/11/16) Umberger finally notched his first goal of the season Thursday, opening the scoring in a 5-1 victory over the Sabres.

    Hey, welcome to the season, R.J. A healthy scratch for the last five games, Umberger's played career-low minutes even when he's been in the lineup this year, and the result has been a continuation of his precipitous decline. He certainly looked the part of a goal-scorer, getting into a prime scoring area and blasting a pass from Sam Gagner by a stunned Robin Lehner. It was his first point since Jan. 5, highlighting the rarity of Umberger's latter-day contributions.

    Flyers' R.J. Umberger: Warming bench Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/16) Umberger will be a healthy scratch Tuesday night against the Canadiens, Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    As noted by Carchidi, Umberger hasn't scored in 50 consecutive games, plus he carried a nine-game pointless streak into the All-Star break. Perhaps his time on the pine will allow him to see the game from a different perspective and come back rejuvenated, but we're not holding our collective breath. Umberger has just nine goals in 99 games since his tenure with the Flyers started in 2014-15.
