…And it begins. Gustafsson is a higher-rated prospect in the Flyers’ system, but I doubt he’ll see any action if OD and Pronger can both go. Then again, it’s Ottawa, and as a team you can kind of afford to play the youngster, get his feet wet, and let either Pronger or OD rest.
Of course, if Gustafsson shows the Flyers he can play, then there’s no reason to make a trade. That’s always a good thing.
