The hilarious part is how all these threads aren't started by Flyers fans
. We could use a #1 defenseman... many teams are in the same boat, but our defensive core is far from terrible. They've actually played very well @ even strength thus far. 4 ES goals against in 5 games.
You also won't hear any Flyers fans complaining about Couturier or longing for Dougie. Maybe that should tell you something?
