I realize that your kings won a Cup and with that comes an outlook of greater opinions and new found knowledge. The tampa bay lightning and carolina hurricanes fans once shared that same gift.
21,22,23,24 with a 33 year old goalie and the only reliable defenseman is 36 years old. By the time the young forwards are ready to contribute fully (and no, they're not there yet) the defense will require a full rebuild and Bryz may or may not be worth a damn. That's where the issue lies and why people think Flyers fans who downplay Richards' and Carter's importance are delusional.
