Anyone still believe Richards and Carter were overrated defensively?

Our forwards have a lot of growing to do in their own end. Giroux is solid, but not all-world. Briere is a straight up liability. Coutuirer is still learning, and Talbot gets limited minutes. It's hardly the down-the-middle defensive unit we've had since 2007-08. Another thing is that without Pronger, Carle is helpless. It doesn't help that Meszaros and Coburn haven't been playing great. Timonen can't do it alone.

Couple that with bad bounces as well as a team that just changed roughly half of its lineup and you have the catastrophe that is known as the early 2011-12 Flyers.

It will correct itself in time.
