Stats are one thing, but I've watched almost every Flyers game this season and Kimmo looks old and slow and injured on defense. This is just one example.

But Timonen has also given up a least two penalty shots this season when he has been caught behind the play and resorted to hooking. And of course Bryzgalov didn't stop them because he's hopeless on breakaways.
