The Flyers simply do not need Bouwmeester. Take a look at the Flyers top 4 d-men and compare it to the rest of the East and we're just as good as everyone else, maybe even a little better. Look at the Rangers top 4 - Staal, Mara, Redden, Roszival. Look at the Penguins top 4 - Goligoski, Orpik, and who else? Look at the Devils top 4 - Martin, White, Oduya, and Mottau. Look at Boston's top 4 - Chara, Wideman, Ference, and Ward. Buffalo's top 4 is Lydman, Numminen, Spacek and Rivet. Montreal's top 4 is Hamrlik, Komisarek, Markov and O'Byrne. Washington's top 4 is Green, Morrison, Poti, and Pothier. Carolina's top 4 is Pitkanen, Gleason, Babchuk and Kaberle. Ottawa's top 4 is Philips, Volchenkov, Kuba and Picard. Seriously, I'm not worried about anyone else in the east and their top 4 d-group. Pittsburgh will improve when Whitney and Gonchar come back to the lineup, but it's going to take them time to catch up to game shape.
Seriously, our top four is perfectly fine. If anything, now is the time to leave this group alone and let them settle down and develop chemistry. Once Parent and Jones get healthy, then we can start giving guys breaks and that's only going to make our situation even better.
