NOT BOUWMEESTER... BUT MCLAREN

The Flyers got a defenseman after all, but something tells me it wasn't a guy at the top of their list.

The Flyers traded a sixth rounder for 31-year-old defenseman Kyle McLaren of San Jose.

McLaren has not played a game in the NHL this season after being waived to the AHL.

He has played just 17 games for the Worcester Sharks with zero goals and six assists. He had 17 penalty minutes.

McLaren, 6-4, 230, makes $2.5 million, but will likely be sent to the Phantoms and only be used as a call up if necessary.

Trades are still trickling in, but it's not looking like the Flyers did anything of substance besides get rid of a guy who was well-liked in the locker room in Upshall.

An absolutely horrible week, going all the way back to waiving Metropolit and Vaananen. Peter Luuko must be calling the shots, because these recent moves are just as stupid and short-sighted as selling the Phantoms and moving them to the Lehigh Valley.
