Lehtonen on Philadelphia's radar?


Atlanta Thrashers GM Don Waddell will try to make a number of positive changes to his roster this summer, one of which could include trading away goalie Kari Lehtonen.

Lehtonen was shopped during the season, close to the trade deadline in March, and it's believed the Thrashers will entertain offers for him this off-season.

According to the Camden Courier-Post, the Philadelphia Flyers could turn their attention to Lehtonen, who made $3 million last season and is a restricted free agent.

The Flyers and Thrashers had discussed a trade involving Lehtonen earlier in the year, but nothing materialized.

From the Editor: The two teams tried to work out a deal around the trade deadline, but a trade fell through. I'm sure they'll revisit things this off-season. Lehtonen's a quality No.1 goalie, who just needs a change. -- David Pagnotta.
