I did not advocate a offense only defenseman.
Just a defenseman with offensive skills, something few of our defenseman possess.
Timmonen will retire, what will we do then ???
Even if Lavi is gone, a defenseman who can move the puck or run a power play is still useful.
And if we managed to find a #1 defenseman, it will help us to stop dwelling on what
a healthy Chris Pronger could have brought to the Flyers.
It is my position that our porous defense is our achilles' heel.
Until this is addressed we can not reach our goal.
