Obviously Leighton has been good, but you would think with those defenders currently out there, they would be giving up alot of shots. Dont know what system Paterson does use, but it seems to be working. Worked last season from right when he took over as headcoach. The players and fans all like Paterson. Doing a very good job down there with the players he has. You look around the league and alot of these teams have 1st round picks on their team etc etc. Flyers have mostly non-drafted guys and are just 4 points away from the conference lead.
I wish we had him in much sooner. Gilbert was an absolute disaster with the team. He was misusing some players, fighting with others, and even driving prospects out.

One thing I notice is that hockey seems fun again for them.
