Do the Flyers have enough playmakers on offense?

That being said, if Primeau were to play an offensive game, at the very most, you can expect maybe 50 to 60 points at the most out of him.
His playoff performance was an exception, not a rule. If you look back at Primeau's career, he has a dominating playoffs when he's playing for a contract. No difference here. He was playing for a contract. It's too bad that he can't carry that playoff performance over to the regular season though because it was a dominating performance. Someone on here called it a Mark Messier-esque performance. I probably wouldn't go that far though.
he's been leading the team in shots and not getting those numbers... primeau's problem hasn't been lack of offensive opportunities, he just stopped finishing. he starts finishing, while playing the same he is now, he'll get a lot of points.
hopefully he keeps finishing... that's all that really changed in the playoffs.
