Im 100% sure Bourdon and Marshall are both more capable of at least putting an effective shot toward the net.
I think I am as down on the Flyers defense as I ever have been.
Timonen, Lilja and Carle all need to go. STAT
Timonen had a rough game last night, but until Meszaros, Coburn and Carle all show that they can be trusted upon in all situations, he stays. Timonen is still a top-pairing defenseman and honestly more important to this team than he should need to be.
Lilja has been up and down, he had a few good games in a row, but yesterday wasn't one of them. He's a 7th d though, can't expect to get 82 solid games out of him. If we could trade Carle+Nödl (or something like that) for two solid d's that would fit under the cap I would look at that though, to make sure that Lilja really is the 7th d (Gustafsson, Marshall and Bourdon to the AHL but could fill in if there's some serious injuries).
