Add through free agency, b/c in my mind addition (Iginla) through subtraction (1st rounder, top prospect, etc...) is not the way to go.

We are in a re-build, and as Homer stated in 24/7, "I'm not sure if we are going to be a better team or a worse team, but we are going to be a different team."

I want to win the Presidents Trophy and the Stanley Cup just as bad as the next guy, but we need to stay on course.

Adding Igilna does not make the Flyers a Stanley Cup championship team.
I agree 100%. Next year will be interesting. Deep draft. Keep our picks. Sign a strong FA winger.

A lot of leadership will potentially be gone. This team may get a helluva a lot younger. Leaders/vets possibly gone: Briere (amnesty), Shelley, Feds, Knuble, Kimmo, Lilja, Leighton.
