your clarification makes a little more sense. Except for one fact, why Morrow? And I thought the same as you have now stated..... What young guy does NOT play in adding an over the hill old guy, (which you state we already have 3 of those blue collar types). 2nd I disagree with your assesment of Briere. Yes, he did NOT have a great regular season last year, but only last year. And finally, I would NOT be in a hurry to dump Hartnell. So that leaves Timmo, who may be playing his last year anyway. AND, there is going to be a number of UFAs at the trade deadline.
It would appear, the Flyers are on the path to which you have mentioned but without Morrow. I think most are looking the other way, by picking up A Better player than Morrow, near the trade deadline for the Playoff run.
So just remember this, if the Flyers are in deep trouble making the Playoffs this year, dropping perhaps 3 of their top 6 players does not look to encouraging for the following year does it?
Now that does not mean I don't disagree with your analysis, but more so stating that if the core of this team does not get it done this year, the Flyers and the fans,may have overestimated alot of their young talent.
