O'Donnell has been one of the best Flyers Defensive D's this season. Walker should play if one of the top 6 guys gets injured, if his contract wasn't that bad.

I agree that Walker is making too much money as the 7th D, but you honestly would trust Bartulis in the playoffs if one of our top 6 D's got injured? I surely wouldn't trust him as much as Walker given that situation. In the regular season though Bartulis playing some isn't too bad because he is young and has a lot of room for improvement.

Odonnell has been ok but he isn't very fast and isn't very good at skating in general anymore. Obviously he brings leadership and is ok if he doesn't get caught out of position by a stamkos or st louis type of player

Odonnell doesn't get caught out of position often. That is what makes him good. He doesn't have to be fast. Look at Pronger

He's not out there that often against Stamkos and St. Louis, so that's not a concern.

We're in 1st place right now. Everything seems to be just fine. And Walker isn't exactly fast either. It's just a pointless argument.

He just got back from a hip injury. He'll be faster than o'donnell when he's healthy

As long as O'Donnell is efficient, than who cares what Walker can do?

Yeah who cares if he can be more efficient. Just let the other guy do it and not even attempt to notice that its an upgrade

Walker isn't an upgrade over O'Donnell. He makes more money and doesn't do as much.

I think "o Hamhuis 2 x" is channeling the spirit of Wolfy and his love for OKT.

O'Donnell has been the perfect number 6 D. He is lightyears ahead of Walker

kotalik being assigned could be a precursor to re-entry. Or they're just going to bury him.

He'll be buried if he doesn't go back to Europe. He'll never wear a Flames jersey again.

OD is better then Walker. OD has been pefect because Mez & OD have allowed the Flyers to roll 3 pairing and all average around 20-23 minutes a night so Pronger and Kimo aren't getting worn out. Come playoff time I can see both Pronger and Kimo's minutes going up so the #6 dman will be less to worry about. OD doesn't get beat too often because he knows his limits and he understands how to read plays as they develop plus he has Mezsaros as a partner who would be a 3-4 on most playoff teams.

Sending Walker down will allow him to play himself into shape and be recalled once the playoffs start if there are any injuries.

Ok that makes sense. He can play in the AHL until he's back to 100% and then he can be called up
