Bertilsson, Marshall and Bodrov are smaller d-men too, but more d-minded too.
That's really all the room we have for smurf D in the system, now and in the foreseeable future.
We need to draft and/or sign a couple big bruisers in the next year or two to have them in the AHL by the time Pronger is ready to retire....
I agree. John Scott from Minnesota is set to be UFA. Doesn't get much bigger or bruisier than that. I have sort of a man crush on him though. I think he would be a good 6th or 7th Dman. That would give the Flyers some more size on the blueline and he is a legitimate enforcer too. Nothing against the guys we have now who drop the gloves, but none of them are heavyweights.
