Iím not seeing the jump and acceleration that was there late last season and in the playoffs. I donít know if it is an injury, preparation thing or just his line but he has not delivered so far this year. Itís is concerning because they aer counting on him heavily to make up for the lost goals of Richards and Carter. Without his goals the Flyers are going to have a very tough time scoring consistently
The JvR-Read-Voracek line hasn't worked at all. I think Read should be at wing, get Schenn to center and have JvR or Read play with BriŤre and Simmonds.
