Bobby Ryan is born to be a Flyer but he won't make up for the combined loss of Voracek and Read. Flyers have plenty of potential 4th liners on the farm but not a single player they can just plug into a scoring line and we already have lost Jagr and JVR.

Unless they also find a way to sign some like Semin, this makes no sense....
Semin. Ryan. I thought we were trying to improve our team defense and ability to play the coaches system (hard working forecheck style). Not sure these guys are what I was thinking.

Guys who I think play well in this system: Giroux, Read, Voracek, Talbot, Wellwood, Hartnell, Schenn, Couturier, Rinaldo (sans penalties), Sestito (see Rinaldo)
Guys who didn't last year: JVR, Jagr, Briere, Simmonds

JVR and Jagr gone. Good news to me. Simmonds has two way potential. Briere moved to wing makes his lack of D less of a concern. IMO, You bring in Rick Nash or Shane Done. Huge improvement to the team (O and D). You bring in Bobby Ryan or Alex Semin, + on O - on D.
