My problem is what happens to Powe/Kalinski/Nodl in the interim. Granted, players like them are a dime a dozen. But grooming them to step into Betts' role and keeping one or two of them with the team makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than giving that ice time to an old fart who isn't going to be around next season (God willing).
It's no different than picking up Matt ****ing Walker and giving him ice time over Bartulis. It's stupid, it's a waste of young, cheap talent, and all you're doing is stunting their development when Gawd knows the Flyers are going to need that cheap labour in the next couple of years.
