I was talking with a friend of mine who is a Flyers fan and he said that Hitchcock announced that he is planning to use Primeau on the checking line. The Flyers are sick of not being able to score goals. I'm not sure how Perreault helps tho. But Garon and Ward would be very attractive to them, I'm sure. This is not a far-fetched proposal by any means.

Primeau doesn't completely solve our problems, but he does add size and meanness and he is an excellent left winger and would create tons of room for Saku and Audette.

I don't know what they do with Bulis tho. Perhaps Bulis-Ribeiro (ugh)-Zednik?

They could also get rid of Ribs and slot Primeau in as 2nd line center. He's not very productive, but we would spend lots of time mucking in the offensive zone.

This deal only makes sense if Gainey is convinced he can lock him up longterm on the cheap ($4-4.5 mil).
