The Philadelphia Flyers claimed Patrick Thoresen off waivers from Edmonton today. It’s a strange move in that Thoresen is clearly a better player than a few roster forwards currently, but these things happen.
A few things we must conclude from this move include:
- Geoff Sanderson has more trade value.
- They are devoted to the men who are on the current roster save the UFA’s.
- This isn’t about winning games this season.
- Patrick Thoresen is in a better place.
