'"We are extremely pleased to add Daniel to our roster and eager to get him into our lineup," said Flyers general manager Paul Holmgren. "We look for big things from him. Offensively, he is a player capable of doing a lot of good things. Judging by the 95 points that he scored in the league last year, we think that he is a very good offensive player and a great addition to our team."'
