Flyers fans thought Kubina was bad. Foster and Kubina play a similar game but Foster's worse at this point. I mean, I guess he'll bring a little offense from the blue line and will make their PP better but the Flyers will be in big trouble if they give him any significant ES minutes.
Gustafsson has a deeply bruised, though not broken, foot and Bourdon is out with his 97th concussion. Meszaros is just now being cleared to practice after his torn Achilles last offseason. Lilja is also recovering from offseason surgery still, though he should be more ready.

Timmonen - Schenn
Coburn - Grossmann
Meszaros/Gervais/Foster/Lilja in some combination on the 3rd pairing till Gus is ready in a few weeks and we see what kind of minutes Meszaros can log with his current conditioning.
