I am not saying trade for a 30-34 year old PMD, in hopes of making the playoffs.
I am just suggesting we reinvest in younger, mobile defensemen in hopes of improving the team overall.
If it costs the Flyers some of our overrated offensive players, so be it.
Having a high powered offense makes the games exciting, but without fixing this defense, this cycle will continue.
Morin, Hagg and Ghost are all young mobile d-men.

Patience is key.
