I wouldn't have done this as Philadelphia, it adds a lot of cap hit when they are looking at Coburn and Carle hitting free agency at the same time while Timonen and Pronger age. Better off taking the heavier hit a couple years from now when you'd be looking at JVR being a leader on the team rather than the complimentary player he is now.
