Preds fans(when the power play wasn't so woeful) saw how valuable Tootoo was...and saw the way our PP made teams pay..and at the time, Zidlicky was a big part of that.
30 isn't old, and if he was a different type player, I could see it.

The biggest thing Zidlicky brings is his skill as a PP QB. That isn't a pressing need for the Flyers.

We're looking for defenseman that can match up against the other teams top lines on a regular basis, help protect a lead late in games. That isn't Zidlicky.
