That said, I'm not sure that the Flyers would blink at $6AAV if they believed Shattenkirk could be the top-pairing PMD they need.
Obviously that roster would require us to put Pronger on LTIR for the whole season (though there would be about $3.5 free once Pronger was placed on LTIR), and it is pretty thin at forward. In truth, I'd expect that any major salary acquisition requires moving Meszaros one way or another.
Agreed they'd probably need to move Meszaros in that scenario. Gus/Grossmann could be a very nice 3rd pairing, and they'd probably sign a depth guy that could play in ADK and come up when somebody gets hurt (unless you're OK with Lauridsen being that guy).
I'd have to look around, but I wonder if there's a "buy low" type of forward out there that they could swap Mez for. That's a lot of youth up front, particularly on the left side. Or they could just move Mez as a straight dump and see what Gagne will take to come back.
