This idea that the flyers are in win now mode has to stop. We aren't. A 1st is absolutely invaluable to us at this point, as is any part of our core (Simmonds) or future part of our core (Laughton). Iginla is good, but this team is MUCH more than an iginla away from contending for a cup. It's not even kind of worth giving away picks and youth for a player who isnt even playing better than the guy we're giving up in the first place.

The flyers need a young defenseman in the age group of our young core who can grow into a #1 defenseman. Any firsts could help us draft that player and any young chips could help us attain a player like that.
