I love the announcers reaction in that video...its probably as close to homerific and priceless as you can get..."OH MY GOD! OH MY GOD! That is the type of talent that brings franchises back from the dead!"
Brodeur is still the most valuable individual player in the league, followed closely by Ovechkin. I can't see how they wouldn't be 1-2 or 2-1 on anyone's list. Chara would be awesome on the blue line, his PK skills would not only help the Flyers kill penalties but make them tougher and more brazen in general.
Alex Ovechkin - who wouldn't want this guy?
Alex Edler - he's having a terrible year, so maybe he'd be cheap.
Zbynek Michalek - I love watching this kid.
Dustin Brown - tough as nails and a great leader already.
To help the Flyers get over the hump this season?
Chris Pronger - if he's available, I'd do it.
Brendan Witt - every Islander is available; if you can't get Pronger, might as well get the toughest available guy out there.
The reason I didn't list a goalie: I love Biron and there's no other guy I want between the pipes when the boys lift the Cup.

i'd love to see dion phaneuf wearing #3 for the orange and black.
though it always seems like the flyers will only go as far as their goalie will take them. take last year for instance... biron was average/slightly above average against the crapitals and the flyers barely edged that series out. the series against montreal he practically stood on his head and was amazing all series. then against the penguins he was average (at best) and we got hosed.
so basically what im saying if this team has a legit #1 the sky's the limit how far they can go. if brodeur is healthy you cant not go with him based on his track record
