Why have room for forwards?

We defense damn it.

Think of how fresh the 3rd pairings would be. At this point we can roll 6 defensive pairings

Lilja, Foster, Walker, Gervais, Bourdon, Gustaffsson, Manning, Syvret... that's 8 capable 6/7th defenders.

Eh, a few of those guys are hurt, and Syvret is more emergency call-up tan NHL #6.

Manning has struggled this year, from what I understand, and it might be better for his long-term development to play a bigger role at the AHL level this year.

That leaves Lilja, Foster, and Gervais.

Defensively someone has to move. There is no way we are going to carry that many 6/7 guys, unless they are super concerned about injuries.

Well right now Bourdon, Gus, and Walker are all hurt, and Lilja is coming off hip surgery and Manning has been struggling.

Depth chart is realistically:

Timonen
Coburn
Grossmann
Meszaros
Schenn
Gervais
Foster
Lilja

Depends. He'll get less minutes, will be more fresh, and the NHL level gets "easier" due to the higher quality of play. Less mistakes to address on defense.

true, but after watching him play yesterday and a few other times he's the one making the majority of the mistakes that need addressing on defense. he's been a turn over machine as of late and hasn't been taking the body at all, not to mention that he just flat out doesn't cover his man from time to time. out of the currently active d-men on the phantoms right now the most deserving of a call-up is syvret, followed closely by Lauridsen imo.

im ok with this on a 1 way deal. in a shortened season after a lockout you are going to have some injuries. Just a depth move.
This has little of any todo with teams "unwilling" to trade with the Flyers.

Since it's only 1 year, I'm ok with that. Right handed depth is never bad... but thank god he won't play much.

Yeah I know, but we have them. Someone asked how many we had, that was more the point. I'm aware that there won't be a 8 guys competition for the 6th spot.

Much better than a 2 year deal. But he must be protected on the ice with a good defender.

Oh and beware during practice! He hurt Kovy Volchenkov and I think Elias with his shot during practices last year.

I keep waiting for teams to teach the Flyers a lesson for trying to land Kesler with an offersheet. Flyers did nothing wrong. Maybe Nashville would refuse to deal with the Flyers in the future. everyone else? its business as usual. Thinking otherwise is foolish.

Every GM in the league was bursting with envy that he didn't have an ownership group with the b@lls to go after Weber. I don't even see a problem with trading with Nashville either, it's just business, not personal.
