If you go by what the majority of people are saying they'd like to trade Gus+ to Anaheim for Ryan.

We go for a big trade for a Defensemen and end up giving up big pieces of the team or potentially losing Coots or Schenn. My point is I'd like the flyers to be aggressive in the draft in the couple years, and pick a defensemen in the 1st or 2nd round, and develop the guy. Our forwards are absolutely great right now, but you trade Gus for Ryan and your left with Manning and MAB.
The Islanders only drafted D men this year, we'll have to see how many NHL regulars they get out of it.
