He is our checking center, and will be matched up against the Naslund/Bertuzzi line all night. He is a big reason why we're so good defensively. Primeau also kills penalties and is our best face-off guy.
Yeah I kind of figured his roll had changed. Obviously a checking center is very valuable, but he's had expectations and is being paid more like a star center... that's all I meant.
What little I've seen of the Flyers this year, the have the look of team rather than a group of stars.
