It's a struggle for the Flyers just to get the puck out of their own zone, let alone through the neutral zone.

Agreed. Also, beyond Timonen and Gus, the D is an offensive black hole.
They can't force the turnovers that lead to line rushes, they can't keep the puck in when they do pinch, and they have trouble shooting the puck on net from the point(not so much Schenn on the last one).
