I'd argue that the Flyers just need NHL calibar dmen.

Timmonen is old and has to see his minutes kept in check for them to be high quality minutes. Coburn, Schenn and Grossman all play a physical/shot blocking style so count on at least one of them to be injured next season.

After that the D is really dicey. Mes would have made a big difference and even Schultz (who only has 1 year remaining) could help make a difference as a # 4/5 quality dman.

Schultz or Mes might not be ideal but with 1 year on each of their deals if they don't have the cap space to use elsewhere then........
