Problem with this is the Flyers would once again be back to having only 4 of 6 dependable defenseman. With Pronger and Timonen two years older than the last time we had that problem...
I've liked the little bit of Gustafsson I've seen, but still a risk. And if he doesn't work out, theres very little wiggle room with the cap to correct it. Would rather have him, Bart, Syrvet all battling for one spot.
Would love to see Upshaw and Asham back with the team though. Wish the Flyers were better with asset management. We could have had Richards with Upshaw and Downie on his wings. That line would have been great to watch.
And we're not getting Clutterbuck for Versteeg. Wild would never do that straight up, and the Flyers don't have the prospects or the picks to sweeten the pot.
