I don't think the defense has to provide the toughness. There are very few tough defensemen who are good enough skaters anymore. Guys like Phaneuf, Komisarek, Pronger - are untouchable. I can't think of any really tough defensemen who aren't liabilities out there anymore.

Seriously - name a tough defenseman who will lay big checks, fight now and again and can skate. So you have that guy in mind - can the Flyers trade for him?

I'd like one really tough winger to replace Asham who is just a waste so far... How about Laperriere?
