The Flyers will pick up negotiations with restricted free agent Michael Del Zotto when the free agent frenzy dies down.
The Flyers will begin working on a new contract with D Michael Del Zotto next week, once the UFA market quiets down.

Ron Hextall: “There’s no hurry here. We’ve had good talks. We talked at the draft, we talked a little before that. There’s no hurry here. They’re not in a hurry, we’re not in a hurry. We’ll sit down there when things settle down in the next few days or the middle of this month and hopefully get something done or keep working on it.”
The Flyers tendered a $1.3 million qualifying offer to retain his rights before free agency opened.
Del Zotto revived his career in Philly with 32 points (10 G, 22 A) in 64 games last season and will command $3 million at the very least.
