I never said we were going to make a franchise-altering trade for a #1; they just aren't out there, and teams don't want to trade them. I said odds were against the Flyers landing either Vanek or Marleau. It's painfully obvious that the defense lacks speed. It's our biggest problem, so there should at least be some effort in the offseason to address it. Re-signing B. Schenn and Downie, and adding some wing prospects in the draft seem reasonable to me.
Ohh, no dude, I didn't mean your ideas. I meant some of the scenarios people have talked about in this thread. Specifically the ones where more than 50% of the team is changed or ones where we end up getting a legit #1D by giving up anything not including Giroux or Couturier.

I actually agree with pretty much everything you said in that article.
