FLYERS: Another Defenseman is Needed

FLYERS DODGE BULLET WHEN PUCK HITS PRONGER

…Hear that? That’s all of Philadelphia breathing a sigh of relief that Chris Pronger’s injury isn’t too serious and that the future Hall of Famer more than likely won’t even miss a game.

I agree with Seravalli: the way the injuries have come at the Flyers the last week, there is a need for another defenseman, if for nothing else than insurance purposes. However, I’m not so sure Adam Foote is the answer. Sure, as Frank points out, he’s cheap and a proven winner. However, he’s also 39 years old and has scarcely been healthy this entire season. How would he hold up for the playoffs? Would he even be healthy enough to make it to the playoffs? It’s a big risk, but nothing is out of the realm of possibility. Especially if all it costs Homer is a late-round pick.
