He'd be nothing more than a mere depth guy/insurance policy on the Flyers blueline. I would bank on him watching the playoffs from the press box and getting the occasional call if someone gets sidelined. So, for a low pick or far fetched prospect would you want a veteran like Foote as a depth defender or Gustafsson, a prospect with hardly any NHL experience let alone the Stanley Cup Playoffs. I hope they bring him in, not as a guy they would count on to be a game changer, but a depth defender.
