Sbisa is already a top 4 defensemen. He just so happens to be playing behind last years leading defensemen in points, Lydman who was in the like top 3 in +/- in the NHL, and Fowler-Beauchemin who has been amazing to start the season.
Tell me what #5 defensemen in the NHL are better then Sbisa right now.
Sbisa: Top 4 defensemen already
Palmieri: AHL top goal scorer at age 20 (he has 8 in 6 games and someone has 9 in 10 games)
Etem: Destroying the WHL. Top goal scorer and leading in Points per game.
Yep, they're all doing great.
Good for Anaheim (though I still think they should've kept Pronger and opened up cap space elsewhere), but it's ridiculous to think that Philly would regret the deal, as the post I responded to insinuated. Pronger turned the Flyers into a contender.
