I'm not sure if I make the trade for a defenseman. If Marshall and Bourdon are playing lots with the Phantoms and if they're ready, to me anyways, it would make more sense to call one of those guys up to play. Yeah, the defense would be really young, but at the same point, you wouldn't have to worry about tired legs come playoff time.
I also think the loss of Betts just goes to show how much the Flyers really need a center who can win key faceoffs. It would be great if Carter and Richards showed improvement in that area, but having a sure thing just in case Betts gets hurt again wouldn't be a bad idea.
