A few things on Pitkanen:

#1. He has been everything advertsied and more.

#2. If he stays healthy he has a good chance to become the best defenseman in Flyers history.

#3. He is NOT our best defenseman at this time., and nor should we expect him to be. Allow him to make some rokie mistakes, and don't rush him and put him in spots that could effect his confidence.

#4. He has certainly helped our PP, but he is far from the only reason why the PP is better.

Our puck movement is much quicker.

We're getting in front of the net and getting those garbage goals.

Our entire PP is essentially built around 2 plays. Working everything around the right side boads, point man, and player to the right side of the net.

By doing the same things over and over and over again, we are moving the puck quicker, no standing around, and throwing more pucks on the net.
