How about the Flyers as a collective team learn more discipline? Role players do exist you know..... He got no ice time because of all the special teams play going on. That throws the rhythm of the bench off.

I know you don't like the guy but come on. He is what he is. A 4th line grinder playing on the 4th line.
Right, and to me a 4th line player who can't take a regular shift or kill a penalty is a waste of time. I'm sure Matt Walker making 3x as much money can take 3 shifts as a forward, hit someone, fight someone, and spell Pronger and Timonen taking the odd shift as a 7th defenseman. Instead, this guy sits on the end of the bench while we have an 18-year old as a shutdown center, killing penalties with another rookie, and almost no support system behind them. It's a little thing that's a big thing.
