If there is a way to get a very good young defensman that doesn't include trading Couturier and Giroux -- and not too many picks ala Pronger -- you make that trade. I just don't see it happening because nobody gives up those players in the first place. Any other move via trade is pretty much lateral.

The Flyers are starting to see the light in terms of building from within. I suspect that is Holmgren-led, and to that I say better late than never. I'm not sure that he'll last to see what comes of it, but it's good that we've started. Stay the course and keep the core together. As others have said, work on developing/getting forwards who can contribute at both ends of the ice.

Over the next couple of years -- assuming Snider's still involved -- we're going to see a battle between ideologies, and based on the path the Flyers take, we'll see just how much control Snider has over things.
