Even in his stint with CLB he had two goals & 2 assists in 9 games and fighting penalties. The one suspension he had was in pre-season when players were still figuring out what Shanny's guidelines would be.

I don't see how the Flyers can go another season with 2 forwards over 6'2" & 210lbs (Hartnell & Rusty) when the division and conference keeps getting bigger and more physical and then fans can't understand why they had problems with BOS, NYR, OTT, and NJD (later in the season).

Whether it's Sestito or signing a guy like Winnik the Flyers need some size.
This. All this. The fact that members of the Pittsburgh Penguins feel like they can push our team around and deliver cheapshots should be all the wake up call people need. It doesn't matter if they won the ****ing series, both Couturier or Schenn could have been seriously hurt. James Neal should be shaking in his ****ing boots next season when they play us. And Kris Letang also needs an ass-beating for thinking he's a tough guy for beating up Kimmo. They aren't a big roster, and they aren't even a tough roster but the fact that they thought they could get aways with cheapshots says enough about our team's perceived toughness.
