This team got rid of Gagne, Richards and Carter, our 3 best defensive forwards, and it's almost as if Lavy expects the rookies to already be that good. Well it's obvious they aren't...
I hope the Rangers at least give us one win to cheer about, within my lifetime preferably.
While I agree with your theory about the Flyers being able to run and gun and win against teams not as defensively good as the Rangers, my point was also about personnel.
There is absolutely no reason to have a player like Sestito. I know he doesn't get a lot of TOI, but he actually makes your team worse when he is out there.
