No doubt. Lindy Ruff wasn't exactly a stickler for defensively sound hockey. Neither is Laviolette for that matter. If you are getting a coach that knows defense, then I think he would be worth the risk if the trade package was reasonable. The Flyers have had some success rehabilitating struggling defensemen like Matt Carle and Luke Schenn. If you get Myers and Schenn, the Flyers would have their right handed top 4 defensemen, which are hard to find, locked up for next decade.
