But I think Simmonds agitating has done well with energizing the team with last night being the exception.
To me, AT THIS POINT, Simmonds is my favorite player on the Flyers this season (he was in my top 4 or 5 last season). He has 2 goals so far, but had several shots on net in past games this season. But you cannot say he isn't out there hustling. He's rustling his butt off.
Admittedly, that unsportsmanlike conduct penalty he took last night was dumb, though.
