For some reason he loves to get the puck in the circle and try to get all away around the net to create a scoring chance.

A lot of Nodl's problem is in his approach.
That could apply to the whole team at times. When they get cute and try to play on the perimeter is when their scoring suffers.

Not that the Flyers have been a team that develops young players very well, but these guys had noticeably bad hands and now they look OK.

It isn't really about the numbers or the results, they just look a lot better with the puck on their stick and I can't recall another instance of that here off the top of my head.
