Politics has nothing to do with it.

As of right now our defenseman would be ranked

1. Desjardins
2. Johnsson
3. Ragnarsson
4. Weinrich
5. Pitkanen
6. Therien
7. Vandermeer
8. Woywitka
9. Seidenberg

The top 6 are playing. For a stretch Vandermeer was outplaying Therien, but the last 4-6 weeks Therien has been the better player and is in the line-up on a regular basis as he should be.

Could the Flyers play this season with the following defenseman:
Desjardins, Johnsson, Pitkanen, Vandermeer, Seidenberg, and Woywitka

Yes, we could, but then instead of battling for the top seed in the Eastern Conference we would be battling for the 8th seed in the East.
