I've got to agree with ELab when he says there's no way we're moving JVR unless it's for someone like Burns, Bouwmeester, etc....With that being said, I think the best thing the Flyers can do is just leave things the way they are and see how things shake out.

As well, people need to realize that there aren't any number 3 defensemen out there that have a relative good and reasonable contract that can be acquired for cheap. Just not happening. Besides, we've got two guys on the roster that have played in over 300 NHL games (Timonen, Vannanen), 1 guy who is near 200 games (Eminger), 1 guy who played a full season and made a huge jump (Coburn), a reliable shot blocker in Kukkonen and a rookie who played his way into the top six. The good thing about all six guys listed as that they are mobile and we've got a very good hitter in Vannanen.

The D is not that bad. Actually, as odd as it sounds, I feel more comfortable behind this defense than I would if we still had Hatcher and Smith.
