I understand you think these 'young guys" deserve a chance, but sometimes you have to prove it. JVR is the player I have the biggest bone to pick. If you think Briere has been bad than watch JVR. JVR has all the chances in the world to prove he can be as dominate as he was in last years playoffs yet he refuses to show the same drive that took him to that higher level. 6.5 million is steep for Briere and I can see him being shipped out at seasons end as the Flyers will surely be in pursuit of Ryan Suter or Shea Weber But right now, his leadership and ability to mentor the younger forwards on the Flyers is needed.
Why do you think it's harder to play at a PPG pace in the playoffs?

GPA in regular season vs. the playoffs
