Kent Huskins traded to Flyers, is not even close to the answer

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

Kent Huskins is a Flyer.

The Flyers have acquired 33-year-old defenseman Kent Huskins from the Detroit Red Wings in exchange for a conditional draft pick in the 2014 draft. We'll assume that since Huskins is an unrestricted free agent this summer, the condition is whether or not Huskins re-signs with the Flyers.

Huskins earns $750,000 against the cap this season and according to Winging It In Motown, was likely headed to the waiver wire with the Wings' signing of college UFA Dan DeKeyser yesterday.

Unless a trade gets made in the next few hours, it appears as though we'll be updating this post to tell you that Kent Huskins has been placed on waivers to make room. Huskins hasn't played a game since February 24th and is easily the odd-man out because of an apparent lack of trade value. I'm guessing he would clear waivers and would be allowed to join the Griffins if this happens, but we'll know more when we know more, I guess.

That was published literally forty minutes ago. "Apparent lack of trade value." Okay then.

Huskins has played just 11 games this season for the Wings. He is a bottom-pairing defenseman, because you know, the Flyers don't have enough of them.
