Yeah we lose Bob, who is awesome and I really like him, but I'm sure he doesn't want to sit on the bench for 60 games and I'm sure he would understand that we trade him to Phoenix where he can play more games.
I doubt the Flyers would get OEL for Bob. If anything, they'll probably end up with someone like Chris Summers or Brandon Gormley for Bob. I think OEL and Yandle are the two blue liners Phoenix is going to build around. I wouldn't mind either one of Summers or Gormley though. If the Flyers are going to retool on the fly, why not get a top flight defensive prospect for a goaltender who has shown that he can be a number one guy.
