Bourdon has been a pleasant surprise last season showing a lot of promise but they can't really count on him right now.There is a reason why he hasn't signed an extension so far and may not be offered more than one more year when it actually happens. Rightfully so.

If Homer does not trust Gustafsson at this point and he doesn't think that either Manning or Lauridson can step up right now, he will bring in another Veteran before camp or even invite some unsigned FA on a tryout.
Yup..nice way of putting it. MAB is too much of an outlier to be relied upon right now to help fill the void. This is why Tocchet's characterization of the Flyers having a serviceable D is valid and moreso now with Mesz whose health was already a question mark b/c of his back. Right now our D all around apart from the likes of Coburn has too many health questions. Carle took a lot of abuse..some warranted but the dude played a lot of games. Even Grossman is suspect IMO although others disagree...
