Homer could have brought in a lot of other players for Upshall, but chose Carcillo. I think it all goes back to the west coast trip when Richards was run and fought late in the Chicago game, Gagne got cheaped in the Vancouver game and Giroux got cheaped in the Anaheim game. The Flyers needed more toughness on the ice, Cote just isn't close to good enough to take a regular shift.

As a player, Carcillo looks OK and he does pay attention to defense regardless of his fat minus number this year in PHX.
