I like Holmgren but he is too reactionary sometimes. Voracek and Couturier have been great pickups from the Carter trade but I think this team desperately misses Mike Richards. Simmonds is an awesome guy to have and I've always liked Schenn, but Mike Richards epitomized what it meant to be a Flyer and was their best two way center.

Signing Bryz to that deal was just plain awful. He's a below average goalie and the system Lavi plays + the Flyers' suspect defense doesn't help cover up his deficiencies.

The Flyers defensive corps really misses the presence of Chris Pronger. It's unfortunate.

Lavi is a good coach. He's got a young team up front that needs time to develop, and I think they definitely miss the presence of guys like Pronger, Jagr, and even JVR.
