I'm told the #Flyers have reacquired goalie Brian Boucher from Carolina for Luke Pither. More on this in a bit. #NHL #CrazyDayAlready

well Mike Leighton was a goofy signing earlier in the yr so this should not be a surprise. I assume Boucher is healthy now?

Canes are fine with either Peters or Ellis. I think Peters has a 1 way deal no? Leighton for that matter does too so Philly has to eat some of that in the minors now

A reunion of sorts in Philly with Bouch and Leighton.

Nice to see Bouch back in orange though.

Probably Ellis as the back-up in Carolina.

CAR trades goalie Brian Boucher and prospect Mark Alt to PHI for minor leaguer Luke Pither.

McKenzie says Mark Alt also going to Philly, which seems strange.

Alt is a great story if you're old enough to remember his dad, John Alt (one of the best left tackles in NFL history for the Kansas City Chiefs).

This seems like a good get for the Flyers to me.

Not sure why Alt had to be included. Alt is a defenseman that is still a bit rough around the edges, but has good size, is very strong, a decent skater and has a decent 2-way game. He was also a football standout in high school and is the son of former NFL'r John Alt (who played for the Chiefs).

Third time's the charm.

Before you know it Philly's goalie tandem will be Boucher/Leighton

Is Pither better than his numbers suggest? Not sure why Carolina does this. Pither for Boucher seems fair.

I like the deal for one reason, it means Leighton most likely won't be the back up. And Flyers fans rejoice.

Peters remained in Charlotte and never got the call to come to camp, so Ellis will be the backup. I'm still confused why Alt is in this deal. He's by no means a can't miss prospect, but why does he need to be included in a deal that has a back-up goalie going for a borderline AHLr? Or is there more to Pither than meets the eye?
