That said, he'd make a fantastic RW for DD and would free up Cole to help Pleks do the heavy lifting.
He ranked 6th on the Flyers (fowards only) in terms of level of opposition so he played top 6 opposition mostly. He also had a high Ozone start but still, highest CorsiRel on the Flyers. He'd be a good fit, like you said, with DD but he's also credible in second toughs in case of injuries.
Would be interesting to take a look at the Flyers scoring chances and see if they paint a similar picture.
I think he'd be a good addition (especially considering the market). Now he has to actually want to come here.
