The Philadelphia Flyers continued to radically reshape their roster on Friday.

After enticing star forward Jaromir Jagr back from Russia, the club inked free-agent forward Max Talbot to a multi-year contract, then agreed to contracts with restricted free-agent forward Jakub Voracek and unrestricted free-agent defenseman Andreas Lilja.

Per club policy, no terms of these deals were disclosed. However, the Daily News reports that Talbot's pact is for $9 million over five years and Voracek's is worth $2.25 million for one season.

Talbot had a down statistical year in 2010-11, tallying just eight goals and 21 points in 82 games. In 388 NHL contests, all with Pittsburgh since 2005, the Quebec native has totaled 52 goals and 108 points.

However, Talbot cemented his place in Penguins lore by scoring the only two goals in Game 7 of the 2009 Stanley Cup Finals at Detroit, helping clinch the third title in franchise history.

Voracek was acquired by Philly last Thursday in the deal which shipped Jeff Carter to Columbus.

He posted 14 goals and 46 points in 80 games last season for the Jackets, his third NHL campaign. A native of the Czech Republic, the 21-year-old winger has notched 39 goals and 134 points in 241 contests since breaking in with Columbus in 2008.

Lilja worked 52 games for the Anaheim Ducks this past season, notching one goal and seven points, but was a minus-15. The native Swede, who will turn 36 on July 13, has racked up 16 goals and 81 points in 530 career games with the Kings, Panthers, Red Wings and Ducks since 2000.
