Speaking for the Flyers, I would not do the deal. The value is fair but the Flyers already have an aging D core and will need to retool soon. The back bone is KJ (29), Markov(28), and Pitkanen. Seidenberg is possible but not a lock at this point. The other guys Desjardens, Rags, Timmander are 35,33,30 respectively now.
The prospects are few although Picard looks good at this early point.
So, the Flyers would really look for a younger D to step in within 1-2 years - eg. Lynch/Woywitka/Greene.
I could see Lynch for Handzus as fair value - knowing this is hockeys future I am sure this will get shot down but please don't use money as the central issue.
