I like this. I hope he catches on here. I always liked Berard. I think he would be a good addition to the defence. Now who do we send down to the minors or trade if he catches on here?

That would be cool to add Berard.

We could pair our defensemen like this:
Timonen-Coburn
Jones-Eminger
Berard-Vaananen

Send Kukkonen down the the minors or trade him. Berard is a former no.1 overall pick and I believe he's a shutdown defenseman. We could even pair him with Jones and put Eminger with Vaananen. I don't know, it's tough to say cause the Flyers are loaded with defensive prospects(Ryan Parent, Luca Sbisa, etc...)There's also the Hatcher situation, so i'm not sure. I definitely would sack Kukkonen for the meantime, if Berard makes the team. It would be nice too cause that would give the Flyers 6 starting defensemen, and 2 additional D-men ready for call up in case anyone gets injured.
