I've always been under the impression that you play 7 defensemen in desperate times, and I don't think these are desperate times.
Desperate times? They could come real soon. Check out our schedule for next 6 games.

Flyers better start scoring a lot more on PP or somehow play better D as a team. I am betting on PP scoring.

I know, I know it's only been two games.
