Therien a Phantom

The Flyers sent down Chris Therien to the Philadelphia Phantoms today. Most paid player down there?

That's just not right, if that's true. He's owed more than that, for his years of service, than to be demoted to he AHL.

Might be to get him a few games, while we're home in Philly. He looked slow as hell and very rusty (and rightly so) against the Kings

my guess is that he'll be back with the team when we go on the road again

*lol* Dude, I just saw Chris Therien listed as a Phantom. This brings me much joy. Not as much joy if he was traded.

I agree with you F26, even though I haven't been the biggest Therien supporter, he does deserve a little respect for his time here. it would be alot better if a NHL team would take him on.

He hits like a truck? you're being sarcastic, correct? If not, that is quite the farse. Also, just so everyone is aware, there is a guy currently in the AHL who makes 3 time what Therien makes.

This is sad. Future vets looking at Philly may really see this in a negative light - lacks class. For God sakes just trade him already if this is what it has come to.

that's just it, nobody wants him. the Flyers would have to eat his salary in order for a team t take him right now and they can't afford to do that. hopefully, some NHL team will need a defensemen this year and come calling but I wouldn't expect to get much in return.

BTW, this has nothing to do with class, Clarke would be more than willing to give him to another team but there are no takers right now.

You are right there are no takers - Clarke tried on draft day. The best hope is that our defense is intact and someone else has taken on injuries around the deadline then he can be moved. I do not expect anything in return really for a trade this year, just wish he was in a better position given his 10 years of service to this team. Regarding class, I understand it is about game conditioning but that is very demoralizing to be sent to the AHL after simply being benched in the NHL after his years. Options are limited but that is not what I want for him, but it may be in his best interest eventually.

This is not a "classless move by Clarke", as has been suggested in this thread. It is not unusual at all to send a vet who has either not been playing or back from rehabbing an injury, to the minors for a few games to get them alot of playing time to get them back into game shape. Did anyone actually see Therien in the LA game? He is NOT in game shape at all. He'll play a couple/few games for the Phantoms, then be recalled.

As for the guy who asked for proof of this move:

I'm sure anyteam would like a steady 3-4th defenseman.
Get the 3rd round pick for him, Clarkie!

He was left exposed in the waiver draft. Anyone could have had him for free.

Why would anyone give up a third round pick for him when they could have had him for free off the waiver draft?

The CP reports Therien will be back in orange and black tonight, Johnsson could be out with a sore shoulder.
