Three years ago, the Flyers tweeted this:
It’s always fun, especially on trade anniversaries, to look back and see where the main parties wound up. Let’s check in with Jori Lehtera, shall we?
Per GM Chuck Fletcher, the #Flyers have placed forward Jori Lehtera on waivers.— x-Philadelphia Flyers (@NHLFlyers) February 6, 2019
Oh. Well, surely things improved for him, right?

That counts as an improvement, I’m sure. I feel like I’m leaving something out, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. Anyway, good for him.

How’s Brayden Schenn doing?
EXTEN-SCHENN!!!— St. Louis Blues (@StLouisBlues) October 4, 2019
Brayden Schenn has signed an eight-year contract extension to remain with the St. Louis Blues through the 2027-28 season. #stlblues

That’s a contract with really solid terms. Schenn must enjoy playing in St. Louis for some reason.
I wonder what that could be.
