Y'know what I hate about the idea of any of Guerin, Fedo, Nolan, Kariya et al coming to Flyers?
Putting these has-beens into 3rd line roles deprives youngsters of important third line minutes and experience.
May be ok for a team crying out for veteran 'leadership' and presence', but for pete's sake, Flyers dont need that. Prongs, Timo, et al... provide enough of that locker room presence and intangible bla bla .. that vets are supposed to be so good at providing.
I HATE geriatrics in third line roles. If they're good enough to beat out someone for a Top 6 role, play em. If they're not, sc544 them.
Putting em into third line prevents and delays other youngsters from gaining that experience, inhibits their development.
