Blair Betts Heading to Philly

A couple of weeks ago we had the latest on Blair Betts and how he was basically sitting around waiting for teams to call him and offer him a contract.

According to both Jim Cerney and Ryan Bright, beat writers for the Rangers and the Flyers - Blair Betts has been invited by the Flyers to their training camp.

No doubt in my mind now that Betts will be a Flyer by the end of training camp. After watching him for the past few years as a Ranger, there is no way that he goes to a training camp and doesn't get offered a contract. He's one of the best penalty killers and shot-blocking forwards in the entire league. A solid addition for the Flyers for their fourth line.

Updated 2:45pm:
Looks like Mark Bell, who the Rangers claimed off waivers from Toronto last season will also be heading to the Flyers' training camp.
