We don't need one!

The posters claiming that things will be all right with this D (HiJLcoward) are completely dillusional. Sorry but the Flyers last year against defensive teams got completely neutered and disembowled b/c they had no effective threat from the backend. The Devils and Rangers were the most effective at it. They just collapsed on our forwards and forechecked the crap out of our banged up and less mobile D. The addition of Schenn and Gervais is not going to change any of that IMO. The loss of Carle will actually be felt more than some people think and this is coming from somebody who wasn't thrilled with him but who always felt he received a bit too much fad hate...
This patchwork D will hold up for a while and if Bryz can win way more games on his own but come the second half they will need serious help if they want to not be fighting for a playoff spot and making some noise if they actually make it. Chalk this year up as possibly being volatile.
Having said this..they need to weather the storm and keep their young nucleus and just suck this crappy luck up.....
Maybe a lockout till Jan will suit this team considering our situation..would suck but be better for us.
