Meh. It would be nice to have him, but the Flyers have far more pressing needs on the blueline and would have to give up far too much to get him. Not to mention that it would be incredibly shocking for these two teams to make a deal of this caliber. This isn't like swapping AHL guys. This is swapping one of the top (if not the top) defensive forwards in the game for what would likely be a king's ransom that would include at least one of JVR, Schenn, or Couturier and would likely include more on top of that. If we are dealing those players, they have to get a defensive anchor on the blue line. Schenn and Couturier moving forward will be excellent defensive shut down guys. Factor in someone like Wellwood and Talbot and our defensive forwards aren't as bad as people like to think. Now our actual defensemen...that is a different story.
