I think Flyers fans are becoming too enamored with the 3 scroing line philosophy and forgot that grit and effort are the big keys to success in the playoffs, not fancy regular season stats.
Grit and effort are not something opposite or in opposition of skill and talent.
Grit and effort are something everyone can use regardless of skill or talent. It's up to the player, with help from his teammates, team leadership, and the coaching staff, to put forth that effort.
Depth is biggest key necessary to be successful in the playoffs. It helps when that depth busts their ass every shift. Skilled players can work hard too.
