Is scoring toutch is over and he is becoming more and more a defensive specialiste in PHI. And he will be a UFA at the end of the season and will probably sing somewhere else. We are not going for the cup so why rent a player for 1 year?
Other than Juneau (who is getting old and slow) our Centreman aren't that great defensively or are young. Koivu is decent defensively but he is better off to concentrate on offense and we all know Riberio doesn't even know his defensemen or who is in net most nights, Higgins is young and Perreault is soft. A defensive and strong centreman would be a great asset for those centreman (with Yanick and someone else going the other way, but if they want Garon you better believe something else is coming from Philly).
