Those kind of dmen do become available now and then. They are not McPhee's preference. He like Pothier, Poti and Hamrlik types who are cheaper to acquire.
For what it's worth I had a great conversation with "Grandpa" Dick Patrick last summer about the Pronger trade. He poo pooed that trade right to my face saying Pronger was overrated and he wasn't even Philly's best player in that run. I was shocked but just nodded my head...wasn't about to argue with him on the spot, but I wanted to.

Dick Patrick being the top "Hockey" mind on the team deserves some blame there too.
