Ever hear of Boullion on Montreal. He must be about 5"8", which is smaller than Slaney. I feel that any player who can win defenceman of the year in the AHL deserves a shot on some team and why not Philly. We've always had big slow defenceman and where has it gotten us.... Slaney is a wizard on the PP and can contribute 5 on 5 and also on PK, if given the opportunity. Just my opinion, we need a change and he may not be the answer but it could be a start...
