This may be a case of the Hurricanes just needing to clear roster spots more than anything.
That's about the only thing that makes sense.

Whatever Alt's limits or stagnation, he's still a much better prospect than Pither, and Boucher, when healthy, is a serviceable goalie. He was and remains immensely popular here.

Don't know if this signals some injury concern with Leighton, or whether it is just a precautionary move, but it is hard to find fault on the Flyers end here.
