I wouldn't say he was the best Flyer last year, certainly one of the best.

Just because Handzus is our 2nd line center is no reason to just dump Primeau. Sharp will not be able to play against the other teams top lines on a regular basis and be our "shut-down" center.

Sharp should be ready next year, and will take Lapointe's job or move to the wing and take LeClair or Recchi's spot.

Not until Carter & Richards are ready will we have someone to replace Primeau, unless we make a trade for someone like Comrie, so then Handzus can move down to the 3rd spot.

Whether you like it or not Primeau is Hitchcock's favorite player, and would leave a big hole in our line-up if he was gone.
