I get your point but I'm not so sure that would be the case. The team won't have much money to fill out the roster so they'll be looking for afforable young guys to step up. There might be a slot or two for a higher skilled guy like AKeson. You look at his former Ranger teammate Jeff Skinner, who is two years younger, and put up 63 pts for the Canes this past season. I wouldn't necessarily consider his presence in the lineup to be indicative of the Flyers being in dire straits. Maybe he would be there because he shows he's worthy and makes the team out of camp or after showing his stuff with the Phantoms (not sure of his contract type).
