Wouldn't trade for him
He's a terriffic player, but there are some things that worry me about him.
1) He's been treated by the Philly med. staff and they don't have the best track record regarding concussions. How many concussions has he had over his career? Can you really trust the Flyers doctors if they say it's 3 or 4. Could be actually 1 or 2 more than that.
2) He played only 25 games this year because of concussions. Missed 2 months from beginning Nov to beginning Jan. Shut it down for the year after Feb 10/08.
3) His salary of 5.5 or whatever is fine, but can you really risk that room against the cap on a player who could get hit and be out for 3 or 4 months? He'd be on LTI, but how many trades were made during the season this past year? If he goes down, you're going to only depend on call ups to replace him.
