What frustrates me about Holmgren is that he never seems to lets rookie defensemen get a legitimate shot. Parent played, but wasn't given a long leash. The Flyers have some players like Bartulis that deserve some sort of shot. The time to do it is not in the playoffs; give the guy some genuine experience before then. If none of the young guys work out, then go and acquire an aging veteran defenseman.

I think the best defenseman developed by the Flyers that remained with the team for any length of time was Chris Therien. For a team that has been in the league as long as they have, that is pretty sad. With this current trend, this won't change anytime soon.
