Edit: I'm also not sure we have the players suited for a system like that. Guys like Giroux, Voracek, and Simmonds look best suited for what we've got now. They aren't fantastic defensively, so stifling their offensive potential to make them play defense has potential to fail. Dale Hunter tried something similar last year, and the results were bad for a while.
yeah i was gonna bring up the caps but i think the flyers are a little better off personnel wise so i don't think it's a good comparison.
sure scoring may be a problem but you have to try something imo. this season isn't completely out of reach so i wouldn't suggest making a transition now but it's pretty clear something needs to change and i doubt bob or smith fix our problems next year.
may be the flyers can find a happy medium
