We were debating the idea of Couterior over Hamilton based on need, and that in 2 years, there isn't a Flyer currently on the roster capable of a top-2 role, with Pronger at 40, Timonen off contract, Coburn not a top-2, Carle either gone or still with team but not a top 2, and Meszaros not a top-2.
It led into a discussion of how good Meszaros is, how he's better than Staal. I responded that top-2 defensemen don't get traded twice before age 25, most recently for a 2nd round pick and directed him to look at what Burns was just traded for, and he said he's better than Burns.
So, I figured I'd get some opinions from the Flyers base. We're all homers to an extent, but I do read some of your team's threads, and I did post Homer's Odyssey to a good response, so I wanted some of you guys' feedback.
