The biggest problem is that every team in the league knows the Flyers are going to be on the hunt for defensemen, so you can bet the asking price will be incredibly high. If Jake is the asking price for a guy like Edler or Shattenkirk, they need to step away. The Flyers are better off drafting a defenseman and then letting him develop.
