(HAP) The Flyers successfully clamied defenseman Brian Leetch from waivers tonight. The club has aggressively pursued veteran leadership and the addition of Brian Leetch signifies the club will do about anything to win now. "We feel that man to man we're as good as any team in the league. The addition of Martin Brodeur earlier in the year prompted us to put all our efforts into winning this year and the acquisition of Brian Leetch further aids us in achieving our goals," said GM Mannarino. Although Leetch is well past his prime, he still brings great skating ability, passing and offensive insticts plus he provides veteran leadership and Stanley Cup experience. The Flyers don't anticipate Leetch playing in their next game as he tends to personal matters but he's expected to play this weekend.
