Making a trade like Simmonds for Edler(just an example) fills the top pairing spot and can be paired with Coburn. It is MUCH easier to find 2d line scoring than it is to find D. Make the trades to get the D then use UFA's for the 2nd/3rd line line scoring.

Hell...even if we did that type of deal in the offseason, we still have:

Schenn G Voracek
Hartnell Vinny Read
Raffl Couts

I think we really need to turn a few F into good D-men.
No offense, but its been said ad nausea that the Flyers need to nut up and trade some forwards for D.

Aside from Giroux & Couturier, and maybe Read, pack some up and upgrade this D
