Gleason or Brewer would work for me. Gleason brings a whole lot of snarl to his game and Brewer is just a good defensive presence who can eat up a ton of minutes and allow a guy like Carle to roam offensively.

The only problem with a Brewer is that he's signed long term, so you can bet Tampa would be looking for a first in return as well as a top prospect.

The problem with Gleason is that he's the type of defenseman the Flyers need - a gritty and nasty thumper who plays a defensive role - but as long as Holmgren's enamored with Carle, Gleason will end up walking.
