Flyers GM Ron Hextall sees value in keeping Jori Lehtera.
Lehtera will come with a $4.7 million cap hit next season, but only averaged 10:31 minutes per game in 2017-18. His minimal role has led some to feel that he should be bought out so that the Flyers can used the cap space saved to target free agents over the summer. Hextall argues that there's reasons to hold onto Lehtera though. "There’s a lot of reasons you don’t just buy a guy out because he makes a little bit more than that type of role should make," Hextall said. "Jori was a good role player for us. He’s a terrific human being. He works hard. He’s really good with our young kids. There’s a lot more to it than just saying ‘Okay, Jori Lehtera was playing center and playing 8-10 minutes.’" The NHL buyout period isn't until mid-June, so there is time for the Flyers to re-evaluate the situation.
