If this teams solution to our current defensive issues is hoping for a healthy Pronger to play like he can after suffering this injury and extending Carle at a ridiculous rate to play with out other 4 3-4 slot guys, then we'll experience even worse problems next year.

It's time to shore it up. Too many guys of the same ceiling, we need a ringer.

Pronger (if healthy) - Suter
Timonen - Coburn
Mesz - Bourdon/Gus
Lilja

If Carle is worth 5+, I would gladly drive to Philly just to drive him to the airport, and hand that money + to someone like Suter. Hopefully the cap goes up to help this team out a bit.
Overall, I agree with this completely.
