Fair point, but the first two trades, because he wouldn't sign and for Rick Nash, aren't really an indictment against his talents. He's an all around defenseman who is good at everything but doesn't really excell at any one thing. He is also caught in a logjam in Columbus with two promising defense prospects in Prout and Murray competing for time there. IMO the Flyers would be lucky to get someone as good at 27 plus Erixon is NHL ready as opposed to having to wait 3 years for that prospect to contribute.
