I do think Witt would fit like a glove on Philly's backline, but I do not see a trade. You're not going to move JVR, Giroux or Parent and, frankly, NYI needs to upgrade it's overall quality, not simply add more interchangeable parts..
Absolutely agree.

As for NYI, I'd like to see Witt, Weight and Guerin (should he waive his NTC) moved at the deadline, along with Comrie (and Sutton). Reality is, however, outside of the first two names, I don't think they will garner much in return.

Weight, Comrie, and Guerin are givens.

But, why do you want to see Witt moved? I shudder to think what our blueline would be like next season without him.
