stevens isn't a fan of lasse, which is sad because he's a solid player. he just isn't any better than any of our other defensemen.

He comes cheap, he's not bad. Someone with injury problems or in a need for 3rd pair D should take a chance with him.

Exactly. Guy deserves to play somewhere, kinda player that'd block shots with his face if he had to. Decent cheap depth guy.

Isn't this the 3rd time he's been waived? Everyone speaks so highly of him, yet no team seems to want him. Why do you think that is?

It's because he ****ing sucks.


Which I've been saying all along. Flyer fans have a hard on for this guy but he stinks.

The fact that he only makes like 800k and isnít picked up speaks volumes about what other teams think. He isnít bad when he plays everyday however he doesnít and his play suffers. A typical bottom pairing guy. You need depth for the playoffs so if he odesnt get picked up no biggie. How is he being sent down for 14 days on a conditioning assignment though?

That was my first thought. It makes no sense for a team that has to figure out how to get Briere back on the roster if/when he gets healthy to stick a guy in the minors and then bring him up on re-entry waivers, and risk carrying dead cap space [which they could/would use for call-ups as needed] in the event the guy gets claimed.

That said, I can't find a record of him actually having been assigned to the Phantoms.

The way he's been treated on Philadelphia probably makes other teams think he's a cancer and a much worse player than he is.
