ROSTER NEWS: #Flyers loan (D) Erik Gustafsson to the Phantoms and make a minor league trade. MORE + VIDEO HERE… http://flyers.nhl.com/club/page.htm?id=64095

The Flyers loaned defenseman Erik Gustafsson to their AHL affiliate, the Adirondack Phantoms today following practice, announced club GM Paul Holmgren.

Gustafsson was recalled to the Flyers on Feb. 16 and joined the team in Montreal, where he appeared in his first game of the season. He played in the next 10 games for the Flyers, posting two assists and averaging 18:01 of ice time, but was scratched in the Flyers last contest vs. Buffalo.

Sniffing out a trade, I think. Still, he should be ahead of Gervais and Foster.

I'd have to assume it's Briere for 2 guys + a pick.

A couple of comments from Frank @ Daily News:

Quote:
Appears nothing imminent in Gustafsson assignment to ADK. Flyers want to see where they are after Tampa game next Monday.
Quote:
Gustafsson: "I get it sometimes where I think too much. You get down into a bad spiral sometimes and I have 5 or 6 bad shifts in a row instead of just forgetting about (a mistake). There's a lot on the line and you want to play good. A little bit nervous is good, but I need to just go out there and play."

Pretty sure he would have to clear waivers. Gus doesnt have to because of total NHL games played. They shouldnt be sending him down. I would have him ahead of Gervais and Foster as well. But as typical in Flyer land no patience with the mistakes from the young defenseman and goaltenders.

Exactly. They need to be either keeping their high draft picks or getting some. Dealing 1st and 2nd rounders for a player like Bouwmeester would be pretty stupid.

I'd love to see him get called up. I have been waiting to see this kid since they drafted him.

Nah, he doesn't have to clear waivers until he's played 160 games between the AHL and NHL since he's 20. As of right now he's about 140 ish.

If they are prepared to call the season a loss, send him down and let him work on his offense

if it's a loss then let him work on it in the NHL. just give him a crap load of minutes and rest g, hartnell and such.

Agreed. Pair up Gustafsson and Grossmann (the Foreigner Double Consonants!) and give Gus the mandate to be the puck mover.

I'm not too concerned with Gus getting sent down. I'd rather see him get good minutes in the AHL to work on whatever it is he needs to work on than get third pair minutes and keep psyching himself out (which he appears to be doing, judging by his comments). Gus hasn't been bad but if he needs to work on something let him do so. The difference between Gus and his replacement is not going to make or break this season (which appears to already be broken anyway).

I'm starting to think the guy coaching the AHL players might be the problem here... all the guys who played 1/2 a year for Murray in ADK were very sluggish to start the year. Gus looks like he's regressed a bit from last year, Sean Couturier has certainly regressed, Brayden Schenn was downright awful to start the year out, Eric Wellwood looked like a shell of himself over his 4 games up here.

I never thought about it before, but when your AHL coach preaches defense above all else, which is exactly the opposite of the run and gun system your NHL coach preaches, there's probably going to be a bit of a disconnect there when players get called up and that can't be very helpful to them. It's gotta be tough to basically have a switch flipped as to how they're supposed to play the game. Going from ADK to Philly is like a complete 180 on the approach to the game.

Terry Murray is a solid coach. I don't know exactly what is going on up in ADK, but I don't think your assessment is accurate. Brayden Schenn was leading the team or close to the top in points in the early going of the season IIRC and I didn't notice any issues, at least nothing significant. Gus looks the same to me. I'm not too sure how you can say Wellwood looked like a shell of himself when he has only played 31 games in his entire career, none of which were all that impressive, especially when he only played limited minutes in four games this year. Wellwood is a fringe NHLer. I doubt he ever looks that much better than he has during his career thus far. His four games this season looked a lot like his 25 or so games he played the year before. Couturier doesn't look that good, but I don't credit that to Murray. Sophomore slump is a better bet.

I don't think that is the issue. I think the issue is just that Gus is not that good and neither is Wellwood. Bottom pairing defender and a bottom line winger.

Murray can only do so much with the talent that Holmgren has given him

Gus has been pretty good recently and is getting crazy ice time, obviously due to some major injuries. with the current state of the defense barring a major change this offseason i think it's pretty clear he's in the top 6 next season. being as though he's an RFA and his ELC was 900k per, what do you guys think he'll be re-signed for?

Oh man. I thought he got sent back down again.

But I also believe that he will be in the top 6 next season. I'd personally like to see him play next to Coburn or Grossmann, shutdown guys. Would help him out I think.

My guess he makes 1m give or take.

Yep. It's the knee-jerk syllable-by-syllable reading comprehension I've attained.

"Gustafsson" : Oh, crap, he's injured!

"sent to the Phantoms" : What? How the hell can they send him down when ...

"March 12" : Wait a minute, it's not March! Phew.
