Of course on the downside, the Flyers give up a lot in the way of size, and if there's one thing this "youth movement" seems to be lacking is skilled players with size.
You said it.
We have several smaller skilled forwards. We don't have a guy like Handzus.
I can't see Comrie being successful with the Flyers. He just doesn't seem like an 'East Coast' player and he sure doesn't seem cut out for Hitchcock's 'grind'em' hockey.
Comrie is of no interest to me as a Flyer fan.
