No I suspect you're pretty stuck with Hackett not to mention your own $9 million man, LeClair. Sherry Ross actually made an interesting comparison of the two teams today:

"Yes, Philadelphia GM Bob Clarke made a nice pickup when he added Danny Markov to his injury-stricken Flyers defense last week, but did he have to run down the kid he traded to make it?

Clarke sent 22-year-old Justin Williams, a first-round draft pick of the Flyers in 2000, to the 'Canes, saying, 'It's our opinion that a top-four defenseman is more valuable than a third-line winger.'

Williams, a slick skater with a lot of promise, was a third-liner mostly because the top six forwards on the Flyers are as old as Wilford Brimley. Williams is playing on one of Carolina's top two lines and averaging three minutes more in ice time per game than he did as a Flyer. It's the same kind of short-sightedness that the Rangers have shown the past eight years, and it hasn't exactly been working out so hot for the Flyers either now, has it?"
