That's not necessarily true at all. I don't know what you base your opinion of Sestito off of but is certainly a strong skater, big, physical and showed ability to finish in his stint with CLB and in the minors. I don't think he will be a great player but I certainly can see him being similar to Matt Martin, Nolan, or Jackman.

Sestito was effective in games he played just by punishing d men on the forecheck which is what this team lacks, the ability to wear down another team. I thought the game he played a really good against DAL and BOS in particular. The BOS he basically set the tone that they weren't gonna come in and push the Flyers around like the previous meeting by going punch for punch with Lucic and later knocking Horton out of the game with a clean check.
