That's just crazy talk! We must act NOW!!!
Seriously, though, I think now is when the Flyers scouts really need to earn their salaries and, besides doing their homework on the draft-eligibles all the way through the 7 rounds, also have extensive notes on some of the potential breakout defensemen with other clubs. Lesser deals that wouldn't involve the Flyers' top young talent but that would return a more NHL-ready Dman with significant upside would be an important strategy.
Holmgren has a good young potential power forward in McGinn (for example) and Cousins is high projected as a scoring, agitating forward. What if he turned one/both of them into equivalent-talent defensemen?
