Description: Right wing Mike Knuble has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.
Insight: Knuble played for the Flyers from 2005 to 2009 before spending the last three seasons in Washington. Knuble witnessed a steep decline in production last season (18 points in 2011-12 compared to 40 in 2010-11) and probably won't be a player you can trust in fantasy this year.

Insight: Knuble's production fell by five goals and 13 points this season to 24 goals and 40 points. A $2 million price tag for one year seems fair for a proven goal scorer who is clearly on the downside of his career.

Insight: Knuble has posted back-to-back three-point games with a +5 over that two-game stretch. With five goals and nine points in his last six games, Knuble is worth a waiver-wire pickup this late in the season.

Description: Mike Knuble scored two goals and added an assist with a +3 in the Capitals' 3-0 win over New Jersey on Friday. Yahoo Sports

However, he has goals in three of his last four games and points in four of his last five, so he is picking up his game just as his team is.
