Hmm. What's the scoop on this guy? Is this the Flyers needing to get rid of a contract?

Yup...I remember posting on the main boards regarding his "retirement"

He didn't retire, he quit.

at a listed 5'8", he should fit right in with Kozun and Azevedo.

Legein sucks. As in, can't-even-score-in-the-ECHL sucks.

I have a soft spot for prospects that played for Team Canada once upon a time, but Legein was probably better off staying retired.

It's exactly that. With the return of Betts, we were back at the 50 contract limit without including Couturier. We needed to get rid of a contract in order to keep him after 9 games.

these favor doing things are getting out of control.
I'm still mad about the Sturm disaster.

Why are we actually doing favors ????
Have we ever gotten one ?????
Not enough of the Simmonds, Schenn stuff... no we keep on doing favors.

Thank god Lombardi has no background conenctions to the Bulls.........
they would reactivate Dennis Rodman as character coach

Get real. The team just got a pick for not doing much, that's a great favor to be doing.

I guess the 6th round pick was given to the Kings for doing a favor for Philly.

Even if this is a paper transaction, I have to say that when I saw Legein play about six years ago in Mississauga, I came away impressed by his game. Similar in style to Avery, he is an agitator who could play and has some skill, but I have no clue what happened to him after he graduated from juniors.

Seems to have developed some off-ice issues, but hopefully that is behind him. He was young, still is young, and maybe there is a future for him, even as an AHL regular.

yeah right............

what about we helping develope the youngsters in Philly to kick our future butts and are rewared with a 6th rounder and crap.

Hell i would give up our next 200 6th rounder and all the Zeilers and Clunes to give players like Toffoly and Co extra NHL experience............... but nobody is stupid enough to do us this favor.

Same with Bruins........ we helped them winning the Stanley Cup and payed a draftpick for that.
Serious............ i could puke right now

Flyers did the same favor for us a couple years ago.

We took Gauthier's contract off their hands and a 2nd...while they took Hersley and Lukacevic from us to clear roster spots.

I think it's cool we have a team that is willing to help us out and vice versa when these issues arise.

Philly has a lot of contracts/prospects obviously needed to dump one. This is an excellent pickup. Very fast right wing prospect, 2007 2nd round pick, and get paid to take him. Definition of low risk high reward. This is a gift from Philly. He has a bit of upside with a decent skillet but it looks like he likely won't be able to put it all together. Reign or Manchester fodder for free, and who knows, maybe he grows into a fourth liner...

The Kings then used that pick to package up to select Forbort, showing that taking on somebody's crap has benefits.

Legein could be good, he probably won't be, the pick could be good, but it probably won't be. No reason to rage over this.

I think this is a good trade for both sides. Flyers free up a contract spot to keep Couturier on the roster, and Kings get a young player who at one time was a very good prospect and a 6th round pick.

Let me just say as a fan of the Flyers AHL squad, Legein couldnt crack our last place club roster. There are some major issues with his attitude and such. And it wasnt just the coach. The Phantoms went through 3 coaches last season and he had problems with every one.

Lombardi gets a 6th round pick for paying off the last year of Legein's contract. He's a non-prospect.

Seems about right. Spend a little money and get a 6th rounder. Nothing wrong with that.

I guess this guy is part of a long list who just never really moved to the next level. Seems to be a consistent theme in Blue Jacket prospects... Man that franchise is the kiss of doom to young talent. I think we all underestimate just how important a teams development strategy is to the creation of NHL careers.

Legein seemed to have two major problems. That he may not have wanted to be a professional hockey player (but had talent) + blue jackets. So by the time he gets a second chance with the Flyers things are a bit past the point of return. Never know though.... If he plays for Manchester things could turn around. God knows we seem to love small fast players in the AHL!

I'm tired of hearing hey maybe in the future a NHL 4th line player. There is 10,000 hockey players who play all around the world with potential to be an NHL 4th line player.

Had a decent year before last. Won't hurt if he turns it around in Manchester.
