If we were that one defenseman away, then maybe he'd consider moving a young stud for a proven workhorse. But that's not the case. No need to speculate further on that one.
Would rather not move Nathan B either, prefer it to be Diaz. Anyway, Nathan B being part of it is me thinking Homer would want him. The point is that if the Flyers are looking to deal we should be shooting for Coburn or Grossman ( not as good moving the puck but huge, physical, strong defensively, crease clearer ) as either would address the need to get bigger and more physical on the blue line and unlike most all of the UFAs are youngish as both are 28. Both have 3 years left, Coburn at $4.5M and Grossman at $3.5M. Maybe Diaz, a younger PMD relative to what the Flyers have and a 2nd round pick or mid-prospect would do it. UFA Fistric is younger by a year and physical, but not near these guys in terms of quality.
