Philly defense HAS to think of AP (after Pronger). Remmeber both Prongs and Timo are ageing.

A good young signed core of Coburn, Carle and Hamuis learn fron Prongs and Timo for a few years and improve their play steadily .. and then take on their mantle after they retire .... is a good strategy.
As noted above, Pronger's end is too far off for it to be a major concern. If Pronger begins to fail we're basically *ed because of the contract he now possesses.

Carcillo and Powe won't make enough to make much of a difference (particularly Powe, who should be quite cheap).

I'm sure he and his agent would be happy to, but at some point we need to start getting some better contractual flexibility into this roster. You figure both Carter and Giroux are candidates for such deals in the near future, and then whatever happens with JVR.
