It's called ALL CYLINDERS firing at once. That means three forwards lines scoring in every single PO series, no matter who the opponent.

We dont have that and YET people are claiming we have forward DEPTH. That's not depth folks, that's flash and dazzle (what we have). Pretty useless in the POs.

I wanna get a re-definition of the term forward depth.
That doesn't really define forward depth IMO. Sometimes players don't show up that doesn't mean there wasn't depth.

Losing Jagr and JVR this offseason the forward depth took a hit and isn't really anything to brag about IMO they're relying on a lot of career years to build on their success. I think The Flyers will have a better two way forward core this season tho.
