Given today's reports that the Flyers are scouting Anaheim for a depth D, I don't think the organization is convinced that Gus is going to be an NHL #6 this year.... if ever. To me, he's just meh. Too small to defend big men, not fast or skilled enough to be Enstrom or Karlsson, not strong enough defensively to be Timonen.
As you say, he might be OK after Pronger's back, when he can play with Meszaros as partner in the 3rd pairing. I don't like when they pair him with Carle - neither is big enough.
