Briere is doing solid in that department hovering around 53%. Giroux is at 50%. Couturier not doing so well at 42.8%
Would really like to see a minor move made for a faceoff specialist. Problem is, we have too many forwards as is.

I think Talbot is best used in combo w/ Couturier and Read on a 3rd line. It seems Read is at his best offensively around Couturier, as is Talbot. They really seem to have some chemistry together. That 3rd line would also be an excellent defensive line.

Someone I'd love to see the Flyers look @ is a guy like Jerred Smithson of the Predators.

He was 57.4% from the circle last year, 54.9% the year before that and he is also an excellent defensive forward / PKer. Would do wonders for our 4th line IMO.
