Parise's a more uptempo forechecker and better defensively and may fit the Flyers better. But Nash is more skilled, bigger, and is certainly no slouch defensively, and may fit Giroux better....which in a round-about way may fit the Flyers better...making Giroux happy.
Their obvious weakness is still defense and this doesn't fix it. But it's not their only weakness, there are other much easier fixes on the team, like acquiring a primary scoring winger...which Briere isn't until April and JvR hasn't become.
2. Back-up goalie/move Bob for something decent
3. Scoring compliment to G
4. 4th line center.
The scoring compliment to G will be a big splash, so it'll come off as a high priority, but it isn't higher than defense.
