Vancouver has arguably the best top to bottom defense in the Western Conference. Vaananen is there in case someone is injured because, after the top 6, Vancouver's pool of defensemen really thins out.

Same goes for Boston in the Eastern Conference, except their defense doesn't thin out after their top 6. Alberts was too expensive to be spending time in the press box.

I'm not pleased that Holmgren had to be the one to come out and say this. It becomes more apparent each day that the Flyers are clearly missing the veteran leadership of Smith, Hatcher and Kapanen. On the flip side, at least someone did say it and maybe these guys will pull their collective heads out of their *****.
