It gives us options
There's a reason he wasn't a priority before, why he got traded from toronto, and why he's likely going to be the first person the flyers dump. He tries to play at a higher level than he is capable. Constantly stickhandling, ugh, I hated watching him. He's like patrick kane with 1/3rd the ability but 4/3rds the audacity.
