Defenseman Ryan Parent will be sent down to the Phantoms Sunday when the NHL’s player movement freeze for the holidays ends.
Parent, who has missed the entire season while recovering from shoulder surgery, will not be with the Phantoms on a conditioning assignment the way Randy Jones was last week. He’ll probably be with the Phantoms for an extended period.
“He just needs to get playing,” Holmgren said.
The Flyers’ salary logjam has a little to do with Parent being unable to crack the Flyers’ lineup, and since he’s on a two-way contract he can stay with the Phantoms for an extended period.
Huge losses. I noticed a lot of defensemens slapshots hitting Flyers players in the feet last night. I cringed on a few, also noticed the condom on Kimmo's left skate. Did that go on after the bone chip or did he have it on the whole game?
coburn needs to step up his play, thats all there is to it
and i wouldnt move giroux to carters wing....i am just not impressed with him thus far, plus after that give away yesterday id be surprised if johnny promoted him to 2nd line....nodl is familiar with carter, i suspect he will be there
So I'm supposed to be thrilled we have Randy ****ing Jones to cover for an injured Timonen? It doesn't matter, he's the one injury on defense that depth cannot make up for.
Losing Kimmo def sucks I agree but I would much rather have Jones than some guy from the phantoms. To say it doesnt matter is a little much, parent clearly isnt ready yet if theyre saying hes playing for the phantoms, and not just to condition, so its good we have jones back.
You know he always throws a shot in for jones so theres no point in even reacting. Anyone that said to trade him for a 3rd in the first place is an idiot, hes clearly better than a 3rd round pick and even at his salary hes worth keeping for this year and trying to deal at the deadline or after the season.
