That's ashame. I predict he gets picked up.

edit: oh wait, I still have the Jones half salary thing in my mind and am thinking of re-entry...I don't think Syvret will get picked up, although I wouldn't be shocked if he did.

Wow. This is kind of surprising really. Is he on waivers because he has to pass through it if Holmgren wants to return him to the Phantoms?

If it's not because of that, I'm growing a bit weary. I think we've been giving away too many serviceable players which could have been traded rather than waived. If not traded alone, maybe packaged in with other trades. Väänänen, Metropolit, Jones, Syvret...

I didn't really like him. Not an NHL player IMO

Whatever. I don't bother even thinking about what was going through Holmgren's head when he makes these decisions anymore.

This, by the way, is separate of my feelings towards Syvret.

What makes you think there was a viable deal to be had for any of these guys? None of those players are good. Vaananen I did like but he had no value as he never saw the ice, Metropolit was OK but he made more money than what he should have, we all know the story with Jones, and Syvret is not an NHL player IMO. No team is going to give up something for a player that is sure to hit the waiver wire if all trade options are exhausted.

I doubt Syvret gets claimed and then gets assigned to Adirondack

I won't cry if he's gone, but I would like to come up with another defenseman who we could trust if it comes to it. I guess this means Bartulis is on the team for good.

Well, he got outplayed. Syvret was dubbed the #6 by the esteemed management when he made the team. At least they finally found a replacement by giving someone else in the organization an opportunity and not hastily making trades. I don't like losing guys for nothing, and would like the depth, so I hope he clears and we keep him on the Phantoms.

Syvret was a stop-gap for the Flyers; if they lose him on waivers, it's not a big deal. For the minutes he played, there are guys on the Phantoms that could do the same job.

In my opinion, Syvret will never find a permanent home in the NHL; he's a great AHL defensemen but I think the game is a little too fast for him at the NHL level.

Koistinen would be a decent 6th guy.

He cleared, and is on the hook for next year. I don't think the Flyers are interested in that.

Huh? too physical is more likely. Syvret's speed is fine, but he's soft on the puck and on D. Bartulis is much better

The speed of the game affects decision making. Syvret doesn't look as comfortable in the NHL as he does in the AHL. It has nothing to do with how fast he can skate.

Syvret was exactly what he was reported to be -- a good AHL defenseman who could fill in as 6/7 NHL'er periodically and not hurt the team.

His skating skills are fine, but I think he means that the game moves too fast for Syvret to make decisions, identify plays, etc. That's how I saw his play.

Can't say I'm surprised after the way Bartulis has played.

I like Koistinen, but like GKJ hinted, not at $1.2M. Let our own kids play for half that instead.

He was a little too "turnovery" for my tastes. If he is grabbed up fine and if he isn't fine. I certainly don't hate him, but Bart clearly stole his spot. Good for Bart too. I like it when guys step it up and take a roster spot.

That poor boy (maybe 9-10 years old) they've shown a couple of times before games on CSN broadcasts holding the "Danny Syvret's biggest fan" sign is crying in his turkey.
As for Danny, he had a cool ritual of dousing his stick with water during the pre-game skate. I am unsure what it accomplished, as this thread isn't talking about his scoring prowess or his great stick-checking ability.
Good luck to him.

According to Timmy P, Holmgren has said Syvret needs to be playing, and assuming no one picks him up, he'll be assigned to the Phantoms.

You should see this coming, one had to go. There's no point in having two healthy defensemen on the bench, it's also a financial matter.

Bartulis stays because he's the better player of the two, and OKT has a better contract. Syvret says he's very surprised, I don't understand why. He's 8th on the depth chart for sure, and he's been a healthy scratch for the last seven games.

Just hoping Homer wouldn't put Syvret to re-entries..



And NO Koistinen, NO! NOOO!!

Even if he'd come with 0,5 mil caphit, NO!
