Get ready for a Scheen-Sational season. Luke Scheen explodes this season!
If he has that grit and snarl that I seem to think Brayden has showed signs of last season. We may all ready have our best chance at getting our replacement to Pronger all ready on this team.
As a 26 year old Flyers fan since I was a kid we never really had a Dman that brought everything Pronger gave us for 2 seasons. Hatcher maybe?!?! But he was a shell of what he was pre lockout.
We were given a taste of what a player like Pronger does on the ice and how he dominates and controls the play. Hes noticed every damn shift hes out there.
For Both Pronger and us as fans we have been robbed of that now for at least last season and probably the next 2 seasons if he never had his head issues. When we saw Homer going after Weber it was a welcomed surprise but not something we saw coming. So as the days came and went this past week myself and hopefully others started seeing Weber in a Flyers Jersey for the next 14 years. That clearly came to a end yesterday.
A great attempt but another what could have been. We were given a taste of a true commanding shutdown stick it where the sun dont shine #1 dman with Pronger and missed out on the only guy who could fill that hole left open.
So I went and took at look at the UFA and even RFA's for the next 3 seasons. There are some nice Dmen but no one near that matches the very rare and valued characterist's of Pronger/Weber. Tons of skilled D, and hopefully there is one out there that can replace Kimmo after next season. But that would purely be a lateral move for the team, and that's a nod to Kimmo.
My point is I honestly think out best hopes are all ready on this roster in Luke Scheen and Coburn. If Coburn could somehow turn the 5 games a year that he turns into a nasty SOB into a whole year he could easily provide that snarl the D needs. We all know what im talking about haha, Coburn is the Bruce Banner of the Flyers. Someone just needs to keep him angry all season.
Time will tell on Luke Scheen but hes got the skills sets to be that player.
