Zus isn't going anywhere...at least right now. Brewer has already established himself as a top 10 Canadian defenceman...that's gotta count for something. Now that everyone knows I love Eric Brewer...I'd still take Pitkannen for all the benefits he brings to the PP. I don't however think he's 2 1/2 years away from Eric. One thing that the Flyers are used to having and haven't really had this year is the punishing defenceman who makes everyone think twice about picking spots in front of the net. We don't have the imposing blueliners we used to have. Vandermeer fits that role but youth and inconsistency rank him well below Brewer status. I'd love to see Eric in the Orange...I don't however see anyone bend Kevin Lowe over in a deal for him. He's too valuable to the Oil right now. Please don't flame me for saying Joni is better than Eric...he's not...yet.
