Eager can definitely make the Flyers worth watching, and it's sad to see him go. But the Flyers can't really have an agitator buzzing around without a legit heavy watching their players backs. I expect Downie to fulfill the agitator role next season.
Having Jim Vandermeer
back is awesome though. Before the Boogaard fight he went out looking for trouble and played with a nasty edge. Hopefully being back in Philly will help him regain his form.
And it's always nice to get the same, if not more toughness out of a trade.
