The most likely notable occurrence over the next 30 games is that the team's high performing rookies hit their respective walls, as rookies are wont to do, and the Flyers suffer dire consequences as a result. Add in Jagr's age and the wear and tear on Timonen and the prospective picture for March and April is not a lovely one.

More importantly, if one believes the aforementioned player performance degradation to be likely, then one cannot believe that trading significant futures for a blueliner will result in anything more than an extra game or two won in the early rounds.

So I agree Dats, patience is a virtue here.

And DFF it ain't "suddenly", it's a gradual process wherein rookies wear down and older player do the same.
