There was a reason the Devils shipped Foster out in the Zidlicky trade so shortly after acquiring him last year from the Ducks. He's simply barely NHL-caliber now. Still a decent PP specialist and has a nice shot but he's a defensive liability. Can't even say he was ever even a PP QB and he certainly isn't one now.

Which Flyer defensemen are not expected to be ready other than Pronger? I recall hearing something about Grossmann but is he still injured? The fact the Flyers got Gervais in the summer baffled me; signing Foster now leaves me even more confused. They'd better be letting Gustafsson or Bourdon play, even Manning, before Foster. Flyers fans thought Kubina was bad. Foster and Kubina play a similar game but Foster's worse at this point. I mean, I guess he'll bring a little offense from the blue line and will make their PP better but the Flyers will be in big trouble if they give him any significant ES minutes.
