The Philadelphia Flyers Need To Rid Themselves Of Jori Lehtera

from John Boruk of NBC Sports Philadelphia,

The Flyers have enough groin strains and knee pains to worry about, that they certainly don’t need a Jori Lehtera headache.

Lehtera was held out of Wednesday’s practice, and consequently not available to the media, after the website MTV.fi reported that the Flyers forward had been questioned by Finnish authorities as a suspect in a large cocaine ring back in his home country (see story). Police had raided Lehtera’s cottage earlier this summer and he, in turn, has denied any wrongdoing. 

The Flyers elected to send out a statement just before 1 p.m. Wednesday, saying, “We have spoken with Jori Lehtera and the league office regarding the reports out of Finland and will reserve any further comment on the matter at this time.”...

So how should the Flyers proceed moving forward?

It’s simple — place Lehtera on waivers, and if he clears, release him.
