I mean I would probably do it as its another young d-man to let grow with the team and Timonen realistically only has a couple of years left if that. But from a management standpoint he is a leader in the lockerroom and one of the few vets we have as well as one of the longest tenured Flyers on the roster. Let's just say it would surprise me if they moved him but at the same time it is Holmgren and if he feels it will make the team better he will do it. Timonen also has a NMC so that has to be taken into consideration as well, however being a former captain of your squad probably qualms any issues there... but who knows maybe he likes it here?
