I don't think we are going to see much success this season. We lost Carle, which at his price point was a "smart" loss, but his puck moving ability is clearly missing in this current unit. Look at our lines...to have any success, we need a big year from Schenn, a relatively similar year from Read, and increased offensive production from Couturier to be successful. If you are expecting Talbot and Simmonds to have the same type of success as last year, especially Talbot, your asking for trouble.
We'll be fine. I'll bump some of these threads in 2 months when the Flyers are again one of the top scoring teams in the league.
