The flyers are in win now mode. They don't have time to shelter other for teh benefit of development, or to spoonfed soft minutes and ice for development. Coots starts on the dend because he is our best and one of the best defensive centerman in the game at a young age.

Whos minutes do you suggest he gets? Should he get giroux's? Schenns? The flyers are loaded down the middle and if this were a team like the Islanders Im sure he would be getting 2nd line center minutes and ice position. But not on this flyers team.
