I'm not worried. There are two forwards on this team slated to be full time NHL players. One is a third liner, the other has been out of hockey for a year, and he's getting his points. And a player developed offensively but raw defensively is not going to get a lot of playing time under Hitchcock. The more polished they get defensively, the more they'll play on the Flyers, and their offense will come around.

Can Umberger play RW? I know he's playing center on the Phantoms, but RW is pretty damn thin for the Flyers (unless Zhamnov re-signs, then Roenick moves over to RW), it's the one area in terms of talent that concerns me.
