Flyers trade Mike Ratchuk to Columbus for Stefan Legein

According to THIS article, the Flyers have traded defenseman Michael Ratchuk to the Columbus Blue Jackets for right wing Stefan Legein.

This serves a dual purpose, IMO. It helps to ease the logjam we have on D; even when we dressed 7 D, we still had two healthy defensemen among the scratches. It also brings us a forward who currently has 3 points in 6 games. As our offense has gotten off to a slow start, this move could help us boost goal production.

I hate to see Ratchuk go, though. He's good people, and he has a ton of potential. I hope he thrives in the Blue Jackets organ-eye-zation.
