What ails Los Angeles is health. Were they down a player or two, I could see a depth upgrade. However, they're so depleted that I - were I Dave Taylor - would just bite the bullet and hope to stay close enough to make the playoffs. That doesn't sound like an unrealistic possiblity at all.

As for Philadelphia, they can financially afford to keep Therien around for this season. He will cost them relatively little and I'm sure he'll be serviceable come the playoff push. Last year, the Flyers had the same look (save Pitkanen) and still he went out to get Yushkevich over Vandermeer and Seidenberg. I think Clarke likes the two youngsters, but I think he likes the security of experience on defense.

Like it or not, Therien stays. I wouldn't move Ragnarsson.
