According to Flyers radio color man Chris Therien look for the Philadelphia Flyers to find a trading partner for D-Man Lasse Kukkonen. With the Flyers already 8-Man deep and negotiations underway with Bryan Berard it appears Kukkonen will be the odd man. Lasse a former captain in the Finnish Elite League never excelled at anything other than being an excellent shot blocker with the Flyers, given his lackluster play in his own end, and less than par offensively. Most likely Luca Sbisca who appears NHL ready both physically and mental and who's smart play surprised GM Paul Holmgran will likely serve better by going back for one year in the WHL, given the Flyers current log-jam at D. With the aforementioned trade and return of Sbisca to junior hockey the Flyers would be left with Timmonen, Coburn, Jones, Parent, Eminger, Berard, and recently signed Ossi Vannanen. Look for teams such as the Bruins or Blues who are in desperate need of D to make a bid for Kukkonen, or perhaps a undercapped team such as the Kings.
