I don't want to hand some other franchise another Seidenberg, who immediately gets his **** together upon shipping out of Philadelphia. Or a Pitkanen, who just needed our media to eff off. We do, however, need a better class of defensemen than what we have today because as of right now we're treading on Flyers circa '00 when McGillis, and Weinrich were thought of as competent defensemen. We need better to be competitive, and because of the economics of today's NHL that means we need to develop those guys on our lonesome. Otherwise, we're sniffing around the league for scraps (e.g. Meszaros, and Carle) that can't be counted on for ****.
Keith, Seabrook, hjalmarsson, rosival, oduya, leddy, chara, seidenberg, boychuck, ference
Yeah what a bunch of no namers
