Rather have Giroux and JVR.
The people that think the Flyers desperately need to upgrade their defense are fooling themselves. By the end of the season, Timonen, Coburn, and Parent will be the Flyers top 3, and someone else will have stepped up to be a good enough 4th.
Homer should be fired if he trades any of the big forward prospects for a #3 defenseman. Hell, I wouldn't trade Carter, who could easily develop into a 40 goal scorer, for J-Bo. The NHL is going to keep pushing to make defense less important and offense more important, so give me 3 lines that can put the biscuit in the basket, and worry about the defense later.
