The Flyer D-corps is not real all
bad, it's just not really put together well. Timonen still plays at a high level but he can't play the minutes that he has in the past. After him you have Coburn, Schenn, and Grossman who are all good defensively but lack any real offense or puck moving ability. So their transition game tends to be awful.
Given the likelihood that Timonen will retire soon (maybe after next year), they need to add two guys this offseason; ideally one from the draft (Seth Jones) to develop into the #1 guy, and one veteran (either UFA or trade) who is mobile and can move the puck. Trading for a #1 guy is not likely imo, teams just don't go around trading those kinds of players.
