Alt would provide zero offense though. It's a trade off. He's got the size advantage but not much else.
Gus is a fine 3rd pairing guy and is cheap. Flyers should be looking to re-sign him on a one year deal and to dump Grossmann (no sense in paying a guy 3.5 mil a year who can't stay healthy/be useful). At camp let them battle it out for a spot and if Alt or Ghost or Hagg or whoever beats Gus out of that last spot then turn the page. Keep him as the 7th, trade him for a low pick or whatever.
