I wouldn't necessarily consider his presence in the lineup to be indicative of the Flyers being in dire straits. Maybe he would be there because he shows he's worthy and makes the team out of camp or after showing his stuff with the Phantoms (not sure of his contract type).
Akeson will have a hard enough time avoiding getting sent down to the ECHL, he will be happy to stay in the A if he can....
