Leighton and Sestito (Leighton cleared waivers, sent to AHL; Sestito to Vancouver)

Sestito might get claimed.


Quote:
The Flyers placed two players on waivers Thursday – forward Tom Sestito and goalie Michael Leighton.

Leighton has been sidelined for three weeks with a badly bruised ring finger but appears to have been beaten out for his backup spot by his replacement Brian Boucher.

As for Sestito, he certainly has more value to a lineup because of his size, but he has had a hard time staying healthy since arriving in Philadelphia.

His most recent injury, a severe charley horse, was suffered during a conditioning assignment with the Phantoms last week. While he’s been skating since, he has said he doesn’t feel great on the ice just yet, which has made him unavailable to Laviolette for several games.

If they go unclaimed by the other 29 teams in the NHL by Noon tomorrow, the Flyers have the option to keep the players on their roster or send them to the Adirondack Phantoms of the AHL.

Wsh claims Volpatti off Waivers from Van. Flyers place Leighton and Sestito, and Dal place Wandell on Waivers.

Aw, I liked Tostitos, hopefully he doesn't get claimed. I know he's just a 13th forward fighter, but still <3.

Tommy Sestito... Thanks for the win against Tampa, but you were pretty useless apart from that. Also, does anyone know how well Chaput has been playing? From just the stats, it seems like he's put up a pretty respectable rookie year in the AHL. Good thing Homer traded him for waiver fodder.

If they get claimed, yes

Though I don't think Leighton gets claimed. Sestito? Maybe

Gotcha, thanks. Leighton has to feel like he's in the twilight zone. Isn't this the second time he's been signed only to be waived? On the flip side though, he keeps getting paid by an awful goalie.

He's been on waivers about 12 times in his career

Since the SCF, Leighton has been paid $4M and has played in four games. Giving up 13 goals on 91 shots for a .857%. Good riddance, and please never come back to the NHL.

dont worry Leighton fanboys he will be back. No one is going to claim him and he will be back when Boucher has a "lower body injury".
Sestito probably gets claimed by the Isles or someone.

Leighton won't get claimed. The guy was on his way out of the NHL for good in 2010 when a perfect storm in Philly bought him extra time. No team is in a similar situation now. We're stuck with the guy, as incapable as he is at performing on an NHL level. Thanks, Homer.

Sestito will probably be claimed, which may mean that a move is coming. Otherwise, I see no reason to "give" Sestito.

No big loss if Sestito gets claimed. It's not as if he did anything important in Philadelphia. Hard to believe Holmgren gave up a pretty decent prospect for a guy who was waived a few years later. Good asset management there.

I hate Leighton as a goalie in the NHL so much, I'd rather trade him for Dipietro just so he doesnt have a shot in a Flyers uniform again. Amnesty Dipietro at seasons end.

Hands are washed clean.

Wasn't Sestito a younger, better Shelley, though?

Thanks for Tampa Sestito.

He'll probably get claimed. Homer is the only person who wants Leighton.

I'm going to suggest to my rec ball-hockey league to put in a claim for Leighton. He can back me up.

EDIT: Is Leighton off IR? Can you waive an injured player?
