Between the Flyers inability to keep defensemen healthy, and Coli's inability to stay healthy, he would probably trip getting off the plane, break his neck, and never play a game for the team.

In reality, he has a good amount of skill, but he's certainly going to miss his fair share of games due to injuries. It wouldn't be worth it in my opinion. Might as well let the kids play and see what they've go to offer.
