In terms of players who I think could play in the top 6 (now or near future) I'd say you've got: Giroux, Briere, Couturier, Schenn, Voracek, Jagr, JVR, Simmonds, Read and Hartnell. that's 10 for 6 spots thus I think take the hit there and sort the D longer term.
I'm not ready at this moment in time to trade away JvR, Read, Voracek, or whomever for a Shea Weber when July 1st I may be able to get a Ryan Suter for money only or even trade for his rights to beat the July 1st rush. Especially considering that Jagr might not even be in the league in 2 years (and there's no guarentee that he'll be with the Flyers past this year), Hartnell will be an UFA and Briere will be a 35 year old player on the decline with 1 year remaining. Those aren't guys I will be counting on when I'm looking at this team long-term.
